    Feeling Better

    Thank you all for your thoughts and helpful information while I was feeling down. I am doing much better. After being on prescription ID food and Pepcid AC for over a week, I started back on my regular Eukanuba food this weekend. I am happy to report I did not throw up once all weekend. Mom spoke with the vet on Friday and she seems to think it was a really bad case of gastritis and my tummy just needed time to feel better.

    The weather was beautiful this weekend, Mom and I went on lots of walks and layed in the grass to enjoy the warm fall day. No pictures though, I am going to have to start training Mom a little better.

    Feeling Poorly

    Bismarck's Mom: Sorry we haven't posted in so long, Bismarck has been feeling a little under the weather. These are his symptoms, not every day, but it seemed like every other day, within 2 hrs of when Bismarck would eat, he would throw everything up and this went on for a couple of weeks so I took him to the vet two Fridays ago, they gave barium and took a bunch of x-rays all day. They said he was having slow intake from his stomach to his intestine, but the x-ray didn't show a blockage or anything so they don't know why. He is on prescription food and Pepcid AC for a while to see if that helps. He doesn't throw up with the prescription food, but if he has anything else, treat other food, etc., he will throw it up so I don't know what is wrong with him. He acts fine, his energy level seems to be the same, the only time you know he isn't feeling good is when he throws up. If he doesn't get better, they said the only options I have is exploratory surgery or send him to a specialist to have a scope test. I will definitely take him to the specialist, if that is what needs to be done, I would think that would be easier on him than surgery. I'm really worried about him. I will be calling the vet back today to check in with them about how he is doing. Please keep my baby in your thoughts and if anyone has any suggestions or ideas, I would really appreciate hearing them.
