    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 didn't 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!!

    Hi everyone, update on diesel. He is almost off all of his meds and is doing well. The vet thinks that he may have had a small ulcer before surgery and then the stress of surgery and everything just made it all flare up! He is also on a new food for IBS, since he has such a sensitive tummy. It is royal canin hypoallergenic HP. We are hoping this will be it!

Long story short, our boy had surgery and during it he regurgitated and got some acid in his esophagus - this caused esophagitis. The vet was unaware this happened until we brought him home and he wouldn't stop regurgitating multiple times a day. We brought him back and they gave us meds and said if he wasn't better in 2 days to bring him back. He didn't get better so we brought him back, they did a barium swallow - all looked pretty good, but he was still regurgitating so they decided to keep him. No food for 48 hours, iv therapy, and they will slowly introduce food back after 72 hours.. if he does not tolerate this, then we have to go to the specialist (where he originally had this surgery) that is two hours away for a scope to see if he has an esophageal structure... in hoping and praying he doesn't because they said the prognosis of that is not good, he's only 1 1/2 😣 Please does anyone have any experience or advice???
    Oh man this is is a tough one...Try elevating the dog dishes so he is eating higher and easier on his throat
    I'm not a doctor but to get the stomach settled after a surgery I would use yogurt (brosco likes cherry) so once I mixed in a blender (buy a separate one for diesel) and mix with yogurt And it seemed to settle his stomach I haven't had an incident since with him vomiting And this wasn't after a sugery it was after he ate some earplugs in the shop and vomited them up
