    Hi everyone, we are at the end of day 2 with having diesel home. So far he is doing wonderfully! No puking at all! He is pretty worn out and is sleeping a lot but is happy to be home. The only thing we are struggling with is one of his meds - sucralfate. It's suppose to be given on an empty stomach so I can't give it like i normally would with a pill pocket. I'm suppose to give it in a slurry. Whenever I try he gives me a look like "you got to be kidding me" it must taste gross cause he's not picky. Any advice?

    Yay! So glad to hear that Diesel is home and doing so well. He sounds just like Frank when Frank came home from the emergency vet. He was so tired. We had to give him the same slurry as well. I used a large syringe that you can get at a pharmacy, would fill a little of it and slowly push it into the sides of Frank's mouth, the space between the gums and cheek. Then he would have to swallow and I didnt' worry about him choking on it.

    Good luck! I am sending positive thoughts for Diesel's continued recovery! Your family and the poor guy have been through so much. I hope he keeps getting better and better.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Hey everyone, another Diesel update - he has been home for a week and is doing really well! We had a scare Monday morning when we woke up to a pool of blood at his penis - took him in and turns out he just blew a stitch from his urethral prolapse surgery. No problem, and it was still healing well! We solved the sucralfate issue - we mix the slurry with melted coconut oil and he gobbles it up! We have a happy, playful, and healthy bulldog again!!

    Our bulldog had surgery for a prolapsed uretha then month later it came back we were told as long as hes not bleeding a lot he will be fine.If he starts bleeding again we will have to take him to a specialist for surgery we were told the surgery could cost us around 3000.There is still a big chance it will relapse after surgery.We noticed a couple drips of blood tonight Im hoping it stops.

We are just waiting for the call to book an appointment. Does anyone have a similar experience with this? His total surgical cost has only been about $600. I'm worried about how much this surgery will cost! We will do anything for our boy, as he is so young still. Bad timing right before Christmas.
