3:00a.m Saturday - Sept. 9/20 - Chloe wakes up and vomits up her food. We get cleaned up and settle back in - minutes later she at it again - white bile. We get up go downstairs and I take her out to potty - she pees and poops minutes later. Sitting downstairs with her trying to comfort her and offer water - she doesn't drink. Vomiting starts again white bile and then again now it has a pinkish tint. This continues throughout morning until about 7:10. I take to the vet as soon as they open. She had displayed no signs of being sick prior to this episode - eating, drinking, potty was all good. No, not to my knowledge or eye site had she gotten into anything.
Doctor visit - I explained what was happening - had a pic of vomit with pinkish tint - might be blood. So treatment plan - run tests - blood work most important - I opted not to x-Ray right way - but all other treatment including checking for parvovirus was done $262.00. Everything with blood work came back negative - liver count was a little elevated but that could have been caused by vomiting episode - wasn't concerned. Also given hydration pack - She was a little dehydrated.
So of course that morning while up at 3:00 am - I fixed some chicken and rice. She hadn't eaten for past 12 hours.
I was given script for the vomiting - Famotidine .25 twice a day - should stop the vomiting. It did. Continued bland diet rest of Saturday into Sunday with reintroducing her kibble. Blue Buffalo Life Protection Chicken and Oatmeal small breed - continued this from Breeder. Eating and doing fine.
All going well on Monday - back to her old self.
Tuesday hubby calls me at work early morning - she has bad case of liquid diarrhea. I go home home call vet and describe what's happening and was told I probably switched back to quickly (my fault) but wasn't told how long to keep on bland. So the doc gives me script for the diarrhea - metronidazole .25 2x a day. Said ok to give both meds at same time with food. Also given script for Hills i/d dog food - was told continue bland diet for 5 days - when stools look like they are returning to normal start integrating her kibble.
Follow visit today for initial vomiting. Diarrhea getting better stools are trying to firm up. She checked out fine and was doing well but low and behold she has a yeast infection in left ear. $$$$$ - so given $50 drops for that. Still she seems fine in the car ride home. It's been raining all day here and when it rains she reluctant to go out. So once we got back she finally pooped - still soft but not liquid like it was. Gets in the house and vomits her food up?
I'm thinking it could have been car ride?
That's my story - help/suggestions? She goes back on 10/15 for preventive and follow up on ear infection.
Sorry for such a long post.
