I got home last night after being gone about 3 hours and Carbon (Almost 2 year old golden) had thrown up and pooped all over the room he was in. Started out slightly formed and progressed to liquid.Threw up about 4 times-that hard to clean up slimy stuff. I walked him after cleaning up and straight liquid. Called the ER, he would not have been seen for a few hours due to HBC and other emergencies (his was on the low end since he was not still throwing up) so I gave him a metronitozole (sp) and liquids. He threw up once more 2 hours later and then was ok. I stayed up until 3 am, checked on him ever 1/2 hour.
So this morning (7:45) no stool, no more throwing up.Another metronitozole. A little slower than usual, but bright eyed and skin pulls back ok. He kept down chicken broth with a few bits of rice. I gave him pumpkin a little while ago, he is a little slow but seems to be getting better. He has burst of energy and then is tired.Not barking, and he is the guard dog. We will be at the vets in the am, or if I get home in a couple of hours and he has been sick again.
I scooped the yard yesterday, so know there nothing there, he chewed up some foam but he shreads and leaves it, and that he was throwing up and had a liquid stool makes me think virus.
So-I know a couple of your dogs have had this. Do the other dogs get it?
I am very concerned-I have an 11 year old and a 6 month old and with either of them we would have been at the ER as fast as I could go-too old and too young.
Thanks for any help!
