Roshi's Sick...

Haven't been able to keep food down the last two days. He showed no sign of illness: great appetite, play fetch, and will run around like a mad dog, but after 6 hours after eating, . Last night, soon after all the kibbles came out, he puked out some bile liquid, but instead of all yellow, it also had a tinge of red. To me, that says - blood?! So took him to emergency. Vitals were good. Xrays seemed ok, no blockage or foreign object. Only his tummy and intestines were found to be a bit inflamed and gassy. They're thinking some reaction to something he ate or an infection of some sore. They're keeping him on 24 hr watch and rehydrating him and gave him some antibiotics.

I have no idea what happened. My poor little Roshi. All he could do was whimper when he watched us leave him in that metal kennel alone.

Casie and Master Roshi

Poor Roshi :-( You did the right thing taking him to the vet, even though he had to stay there. Things can go wrong so quickly, especially with little dogs like Havs, it's good you caught it before it got out of hand. Sending good wishes your way.

Hopefully by tomorrow morning he'll be feeling much better and able to go home. I'm sure his diet will be different for a week or two so his digestive system can heal. More than likely he'll feel just like his old self very soon. It sure can worry us when our babies are not well.

Sounds like the problems I've been having with mine lately. After two vet visits 3 weeks apart and mine losing 8 oz in that amount of time, (and he only weighs 8 1/2 lbs to start with), I have decided to home cook for him. Every time I tried a new kibble, he would get sick. With all the recalls lately, I really wonder if anything is safe anymore!
