The vet had given us some medicine yesterday for a skin allergy and warned us that he might get nauseous after taking it, but poor little T, he got really sick! Of course he ran across the house to be sick on our Pottery Barn rug and not the easy to clean laminate floor, but I didn't mind.
So I spent the night alternating between trying to get work done and running him outside. All he wanted to do was eat the grass, but I was worried about there being chemicals that he could ingest so I tried to get him to eat lettuce leaves from the fridge. He didn't want anything to do with the lettuce and gave me a dirty look.
He seems to be feeling better now, he's sleeping. yay!
have fun with the puppy!
Poor little T. He's always got something going on. :o(
One night the dog that is least likely to get me up in the middle of the night INSISTED that he had to go out RIGHT NOW, and then, once out, *frantically* ate grass. As far as I know he never threw it up, but that whole thing was so unusual for him that I figured his stomach must be bothering him....
My old dog used to have spurts of vomiting. She's the one who had to be fasted and then carefully started back up with plain boiled white rice. It never seemed to be anything, and she always got over it ok (and lived to be nearly 16.5).
I hope Toby is feeling much better, so you can, too.
I called the vet and we're stopping the meds for 5 days then we'll 1/2 the dose and see if it irrates his tummy again. he's suppossed to have this medicine with food but it's so hard to get him to eat. He likes to be hand fed and we're trying to stop that, so I might be falling off the no-hand-feeding wagon to get food back in his system.
Anyway, he's much better, it usual perky and grumpy self! yay!!
the blog looks "normal" again too!
so interested in the wheatgrass idea, might help solve our quandry when we put in artifical turf cause our postage stamp "back yard" won't grow grass... keep me posted!
hooray for trying not to hand feed!
best to the furfaces and the substitute blogger!
Switch his diet to boiled white rice, boiled chicken breast and a spoon full of live culture yougert. keep him on this for a few days and then gradually wean him back to his normal diet. You can also give him some Pepto Bismol for immediate relief.
