Poorly Stout

Post by stout » 13 Jan 2014, 10:50

Poor ickle Stout had to go to the emergency vet this morning :cry: . He had a bit of an upset belly yesterday, and was quite quiet (but he had a busy weekend, and a few more treats than usual). I let him out for his midnight wee, and he was still 'runny', so he had a couple of tablets. He woke me up again at 2:45 needing to go out, he went to the end of the garden, and was sick. He came back up to bed but then 45 mins later was sick again, Chris took him out, and he was being sick, eating grass and being sick for 45 mins, he can back to be but was really lethargic. So we went off to the vet at 5am. They took some blood, which shows he was a bit dehydrated, but not much else. She gave him an anti sick drug and some pain killers (he belly was a bit sensitive), and antacids. They suggested they could keep him in and give him fluids, but as he is a really clingy poodle if he is poorly, we thought he would be less stressed at home, and the 'normal' vet would be open at 8.

I left Chris and Stout snoozing this morning, but he woke at 9 and was a bit whimpery, so he is off to the vet in about 10 mins. He hasn't been sick again, but is obviously not a happy little chappy :cry:. I am just hoping its not a stray bit of bone :cry:. I have had a tummy bug, so maybe he has got it from me :cry:
Cheers,

Chris, Michelle & Stout

Poor little Stout :( :(

If he can be persuaded to stay in for a few hours, a drip perks them up incredibly quickly! It happened to Daze a couple of times as she wouldn't drink the lectade they gave her but the drip made a huge difference.

Poor Stout :( I do hope that he's soon on the mend. As Bid says it's a shame he won't stay at the vets, as fluids by drip perks them up really quickly.
Let us know how he is.

He has been to the vet. They gave us some rehydration stuff to squirt in his mouth, if he is not better this afternoon they will keep him in-they probably remember how he barked non stop when he was castrated. He is having a day off work for cuddles with his daddy
Cheers,

Chris, Michelle & Stout

Awww, poor Stouty pants! Stan and George send healing doodle vibes and hope that he's back on form very soon. Also, hugs to you and Chris, Michelle - it's so worrying when they're poorly, fingers crossed he's back to bouncing good health soon!
