My Little Lola is Sick

Lola spent the morning experiencing lethargy and bilious vomiting. I was able to get in to see my vet right as they started their day. Her blood work came back normal as did her temp, thank goodness.

Lola was slightly dehydrated, right on the cusp is what my vet said. I had the choice of taking her home after getting an injection and meds to control her vomiting or leaving her so they could administer IV fluids. I chose to leave my baby girl. She will also get x-rays to rule out any type of obstruction.

I had been giving Lola a small meal at bedtime after having her throw up bile twice last week. That seemed to have worked until this morning. Yesterday she was her usual wild child self, today she was just a limp little dog.

Several of you have commented on how sad it is to have our little ones down and out. After still hurting from losing my heart dog in December it was heartbreaking to have Lola just laying in my arms. It sure is tough to see her like that.

Oh Pauline I'm so sorry! I just went through about what you are going through. It's just heart wrenching when these little guys are sick. I'm sure she'll snap out of this soon. Willow has had a couple of episodes similar to this in the past, although the last one was the worst. She's always gotten better within a few days. I'm hoping that's the case with Lola. I'm glad she's back from the vet and in your arms. Please keep us posted on how she is doing.

Good grief! All our dogs seem to be sick! Poor baby! I totally get it, it wasn't long after I lost my Hallie I got Sophie and right back into the sick stuff, makes it even harder when you don't have time to recover some from going through such a nightmare with you last kid.

These tummy issues in our Hav's seem to be rampant. I wonder how often is does happen? At last we can see each others pups getting well again that helps to know they bounce back. Hang in there Pauline please do keep us posted!!!

Oh, I am so sorry. It is just awful to see them laying limp in your arms. The worst was going into isolation to see Loki laying limp in the cage. Lola is so cute. Hope she is back to herself soon.

So sorry that Lola is not feeling well. I also recently went through this with Molly. Thankfully she bounced back rather quickly after she got some meds. I hope it is the same for Lola. Molly has had her share of tummy issues in the past. Thankfully she has been much better in the past year since I started her on a limited ingredient diet and a daily probiotic. Get Well Soon, Lola.

Sorry to hear it. Seems we have all had issues lately. Tucker was feeling that way for a day or so the other week. This was after he had the bad experience with eating the piece of plastic. He was like that about a day and a half then back to his wild child self right after that.

Oh, I'm so sorry!!! It seems to be contagious on the FORUM these days!!! I can't look anymore! (not really)

I sure hope she is better in a day or two. They certainly can be. Hugs to both of you, and I hope she's back home with you very soon!

I really think it's just a bad run of luck. I've never seen ANYTHING like what has gone on on the Forum in the past 2-3 months!!!

Kodi had one bad bout of tummy trouble, but we know the cause for sure... a blockage from a Greenie. Then he had a few bouts of Clostridium overgrowth that were not fun, but I'd liken them to kids getting sick... he was treated (and never hospitalized), we figured out the culprit, and he's been fine since.

The only time either of the girls has had a "tummy problem" was when Pixel had her false pregnancy. She vomited bile the morning that she "gave birth", silly little thing! But I don't think you can count that as an "illness", unless it's in her head! I think we've solved that problem permanently at this point!
