    Default Sick English bulldog - Gastric Ulcers

    Hi everyone,

    I am really concern about my 2 years old English bulldog. last Wednesday he woke up throwing up and his face was swollen, we gave him some benadryl and he got better but by Saturday he stop eating and still vomiting a yellow liquid. Right now he is in the hospital with fluids but all the test came back normal just a little bit dehydrated. the x-ray don't show any obstruction and I think the vet does not have a clue what is going on. he is on steroids but he does not want to eat nothing. Somebody experienced something similar?

    Thanks for your help

    Oh No, I'm so sorry this is happening. Sometimes a blockage may not show up in an X-ray…
    I would normally suggest a second opinion,however, if he's currently in the hospital on an IV then that will not be doable. It's good that he's being monitored and on fluids…but it's concerning that they do not know what could have caused this.
    You may want to look into a bulldog vet in your area and even put in a call to alert them of the situation, they may be able to offer insight to the situation.

    Any chance he was bitten or stung by something? Recent vaccinations?

    Has the vet done a barium test? It will show issues that an xray or ultrasound do not catch

    Where in the US are you located?

    X-rays don't always catch obstructions ask for a barium study & and ultrasounds. Where are you located? What other test have a run on him? Is he still vomiting? And is he using the restroom normally?

    He ate some wet food (his favorite) around 4:30 and now he does not want to eat anymore again... he went to the bathroom and he has kinda dark stools but I dont think he is bleeding internally because his blood work came out normal. The vet sent him home with antibiotics, steroides, metronidazole and cereniA

    @chefolin Do you have anyone to help you? Definitely do not travel two hours away from your home (unless it's to YOUR hospital) at 38 weeks…Did they mention darkening of stool as a side effect from the meds? You may want to put in a call about that just to see what they say. I hope you have a lot of help and support, you definitely have to take care of you!! Congrats on your little one, I hope Victor has a good night and you get some peace and rest…keep us posted (and on the baby too )

    Good that he is eating, but blood work does not always tell the story of what might be happening. please ask the vet you can get to without driving 2 hours, to do the barium test... check and make sure nothing is in him.

    What you are describing my boy is currently recovering from... gastric ulcers. His developed due to stress and being on many medications due to having three surgeries/hospitilized for other problems. Anyways, after he came home the last time
    He wouldn't stop puking(often yellow bile if he had not eaten, or foam), couldn't eat, blood in his stools. They thought it was esophagitis from the endotracheal
    Tube during surgery, so they scoped him to have a look. Turns out it was gastric ulcers. He had every test under the moon - blood tests, ultrasound, barium swallow, etc. they had no clue it was gastric ulcers until he was scoped. It may be a different diagnosis in your case, but I really suggest you ask your vet about that possibility. He is now on a new easy digestible food (just while he heals), antacids, and a pill that coats his stomach. We haven't had puke in awhile thankfully!
