    I'm just reading this post now, and I'm sorry you're going through the this with Diesel. I hope he gets better soon, and know how you feel, and that you are worried. Sending hugs, love and prayers that with the rest and medication, he will improve and recover soon. Please keep us updated.

    I am sending many positive thoughts that Diesel gets better and gets through this. Hopefully his digestive system can rest and start to heal.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Hi everyone, I am finally able to reply with answers for you. So we brought diesel back to the specialist and they ran a series of tests to rule out a hernia, mega esophagus etc. They were pretty confident he was suffering from
    Severe esophagitis. Their plan was to scope him and place a feeding (PEG) tube directly in to his stomach to let his esophagus heal. Well, not long after the scope they called and said his esophagus looked pretty good. But his stomach had a lot of small ulcers. So no feeding tube was placed. They took biopsies of the ulcers and we are waiting for results. Although they say they think they are stress related due to his last surgery/hospitalization. We are finally home with our boy and he is in a strict feeding schedule with specific canned food and meds for the next 2 weeks. It'll be tough with both of us working full time to get all of his feedings and meds in, but we are just so happy to have him home!!!

    So glad to hear that Diesel is home,and hopefully will have good news,and a good recovery. @Diesel10 He has been through so much,as his parents have also. I am sure all of us here will be praying for a good outcome-and a much easier life for you all.

    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?

    I'm not sure if your vet would approve, but I put pill in a tiny amount of peanut butter. They can't separate the pill from the pb so it just goes down... Lol Some members use ice cream, but honestly if he doesn't take it on his own you would have to use a food of some sort.
