Hi guys, its been a while, I hope you are all well...

I need advice...

Belle who is now 3 and has never before had heath issues (apart from self inflicted i.e. eating the veg patch) has had sickness problems now for a fortnight...

She started being sick but wasn't off her food.....we took her to the vets and she had an injection and was put on tablets....then was off her food for a day....we put her on rice and chicken and she loved it and was back on her food....as soon as the tablets ran out she was back being sick (she was 50/50 then with her reg food and the chicken/rice).....so we took her back to the vets....she had another injection and was put back on the tablets....the first day was fine but for the last 2 days she has hardly eaten a thing....she is off the chicken/rice but is still wanting treats....I gave her a treat at lunchtime and she has just been really sick again....

She is still getting excited when its walkies time but in the house she is just sleeping and being quite clingy - when normally you can't watch the TV without her pestering us to play...

any ideas am really worried about her

Thanks

Should suggest it to vet if I was you. Let us know how she gets on.

Hi,

They x-rayed her and nothing unusual showed up...they also took her blood and she has a raised white blood count so she is on tablets for that....her kidneys are fine...but she is still exactly the same and we are now into the 4th day of her not eating...

They said that if there is no change by tomorrow then they will arrange for the camera down the throat thingy

I can't stand it Sad

Had the same thing with my Shellie. Nothing showed up on xrays or by examination. She was getting thinner and vomiting her meals then eating it again. Sometimes she managed to keep it down, but most times not. Our Vet did an exploratory operation and she had a tumour in her pancreas. Can your Vet do a check for this?

Next step camera then the other xray where she drinks some white liquid first....

Am keeping a very close eye on her today...luckily I work from home!

I had a break through about an hour ago...she ate about a dozen small puppy biscuits and so far she has kept them down...first bit of food for 3 days and she is still drinking water normally...

Will just have to wait it out today and keep hoping she is ok Sad

Hola,

Belle is on the mend!

After a worrying few weeks an ultrasound found a 'foreign body' deep in her intestines!

It was a large plastic squeak from a doggie squeaky toy!

It had completely blocked her intestines.....it is about 6cm in diameter and had deflated and folded in half which must be how it got from her stomach as far as it did

She is recovering well and I truly hope that it hasn't damaged her intestines but time will tell

Phew!

Glad you found what it was, and I hope she gets over her surgery soon. No more squeaky toys!
