    Default Headed to the vets this morning…

    Well this started about 2 days ago, and unfortunately our internet was out w/the storms we were having...

    Wally started acting weird, chewing on his paw continuously… and when I finally got a look it was super red and swollen. I gave him some benadryl and put some vetericyn on it… that night he was restless, woke me up at 530am vomited and pooped all over the living room. I called the vet yesterday morning, and we came to the conclusion that he was bit or stung by something… unfortunately yesterday was her day off and the other vet I normally see was on vacation. She instructed me to give him some prednisone (we have some for the hubby) and keep up w/the benedryl. He seemed to be fine, he wasn't breathing hard or anything… just acting weird, rubbing his eyes on the carpet and generally acting out of sorts. Last night OMG… he woke me up at 1am, vomited once (it was liquid) and pooped all over the bedroom (NOT diarrhea) and once again… up all damn night pacing. I am BEYOND exhausted at this point...

    I'm taking him to the vets this morning… his paw doesn't seem bad now, but both of his eyes are weeping. His face isn't as red as the first day, but he REFUSES to go outside and use the bathroom. I had to put his halter on this morning and we stood outside for 15min and he did nothing. I guess he's scared to go out in the grass now… AND he's been growling at us if we try to look at his paw/eyes/face etc.

    I have NO idea what the heck is going on… I will let you guys know when I get back.

    @ddnene Sending best wishes and prayers for Wally (and you). It's like he has had a strong reaction to some kind of bite. Especially that he is afraid to go outside. There are those mean bees that live in the ground,and they sent a dog I had to the hospital. I hope poor Wally will be okay(maybe prednisone/pain meds.)
    Damn!You have been through so much

    Oh my goodness, poor Wally and poor you! I am sending positive thoughts to you both this morning and that the vet visit goes well. Hopefully it is just a bad reaction to something and will get out of his system soon.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!
