Well, I'm a bit distraught because my poor Jackson is sick* :-[ .* He was fine yesterday morning - ate his breakfast, went for a jog, had normal bowel movements, didn't get into anything, etc.* Then he started throwing up yesterday afternoon - first his food, then water and bile - but nothing unusual in the throw-up.* I didn't give him any food and tried to just give him ice cubes.* The vomiting only occurred about every 45 min., and then stopped yesterday evening and last night.* So I thought it was passing through his system.* However, I felt horrible because I knew he had to be a bit dehydrated, but he couldn't even keep down water.
This morning I noticed he'd thrown up a little bit during the night.* He must have let the ice melt in his bowl to get water because he started up the vomiting again - just water and bile again.* So I took him to the vet 1st thing this morning (I was on the phone at 7:30 the minute they opened) .* They did a full blood test on him - but I don't find out until tomorrow morning.* They also gave him iv fluids, so I don't have to worry about his dehydration, and nausea meds. to stop the vomiting.* If he isn't better by tomorrow AM and the blood work doesn't show anything, I'm going to take him back for x-rays.* I have NO idea what this could be.* He's an indoor dog, so he can't really get into anything unless he's on the leash - i don't let him either.* He does have a tendency to lick up anything he possibly can before you know it, so maybe he did eat something weird.* I feel so bad for him because you can tell he feels like crap!!* Normally he's all about wagging his body and licking everyone - now he's only wagging his tail a little bit and no licking* :-[.* I hope this is nothing serious and it passes through him quickly!* My poor Jackson*
Awww!!! Poor Jackson indeed! Hope he feels better soon! Keep us posted.

Hope he feels better!!! How scary!!
Sending feeling-better wishes Jackson's way! Poor guy... hope he's doing better!
Thanks for all of your thoughts!* This is so frustrating because he still feels horrible!* He's on anti-nausea medicine, so at least he's not vomiting, but it's so obvious he feels horrible.* He won't get up much, he wants nothing to do with food, and he just plain looks sad!* I have to wait until tomorrow to get the results of the blood test back - hopefully they will tell me something!* He is able to hold down some water, so that is good.* I tried to give him some of the special canned food the vets gave me, but he wanted nothing to do with it (that is NOT typical lab behavior).* Poor poor jackson - he has a way of looking so so sad that my heart breaks* * I'll update tomorrow with any news!
