Worried and Depressed

Our little Fipsy is sick - she is vomiting, coughing and has diarrhea. She has had nothing to eat since Saturday morning and she threw it all up. The only thing different that she has had to eat is a Denta Bone, which a friend brought over and which I normally would not feed her, but she gave it to her on Friday, and also gave one to our other havanese. We have another dog that eats the same food, and she is fine, so can't be the food. She is lethargic and won't eat anything, and drinks very little.

She is at the vet's right now, and so far, the bill is $700.00 for x-rays, tests,etc., and in a few hours, hopefully we will know what it is.

We are sick about this - Can those denta bones get stuck? That is the only thing I can think of.

oh I feel so sorry for your little one and I know how upset you must be!! Think positive and know she is getting good care and your vet will get to the source of her illness. Please keep us posted. I'm not familiar with the denta bones, but I suppose anything is possible.

I hope you will find out soon what is wrong. I have gotten to the point that I don't give mine any kind of edible chew. McGee would eat the entire thing and I'm afraid of him getting sick. I only buy nylabones because they never seem to get anything off of them but enjoy chewing on them a lot.

I hope Fipsy is feeling better soon! Cassie had HGE about a year ago. That stands Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. She was so sick and spent 2 nights at the emergency vet on iv fluids. If that is what it is, they do not know what causes it. Please let us know as soon as you hear anything from the vet.

So sorry you had this trouble. Never feed any of the compressed chews like Greenies and such. They absolutely can cause obstructions.
