Rollie is on his way to the vet . . .

Hi All,

Eric is taking Rollie to the vet hospital right now. We're so worried. This week we've been posting about new chewies because we thought he swallowed part of a bully stick. But then we found a couple chewies hidden in the house and came to the conclusion that he didn't swallow it, but instead, hid it or just batted it somewhere he couldn't get to (he's still tethered d/t potty training).

Well, I've also been posting about loose stools and I thought it was b/c we've been transitioning him to a new, richer food. But then I read from some of you here that he should be adjusted by now (it's well over a month) and that made me think that the new food might just be too rich for him and it may not be our best option.

But then today he vomited twice in the AM. And he's had diarrhea/lose stools for the past couple of days. And just a little while ago Eric had him out and he had diarrhea but was also seeming to be obstructed at the same time. (and he got poop all over himself and DH - I just got out of the shower with him, Rollie, not DH - not a pretty sight).

So now I'm worried about the bully stick again. We can risk not finding out so Eric took him. My poor, poopy, wet pup.

We'll all be thinking about you AND him! Kodi had a partial obstruction last winter (probably from a Greenie) so I know how scary it can be. He was in the hospital for 2 days once, then overnight again just after he came off the first round of medicine.

Fortunately, he bounced back just fine, and I learned my lesson about chew items. With the aggressive chewers, you just have to be really REALLY careful to only give them things that are too big to get all the way in their mouths. (hence our use of moose antler blades!)

Keep us posted!
