    DefaultNeed advice please

    Both boys aren't well today. Neither will get out of bed. I have called the vet and can't see him until this afternoon.

    I feed them chicken last night and a little left over Salmon. Could this have caused them to have tummy aches.

    Erns did a mucusy(sp) poop this morning.

    Erns has been up most of the night wimpering. He humped his blankie last night and yelped so I gave him extra meds for his hips thinking he hurt them.

    TIA

    I doubt the chicken or salom got them ill. Bear and Deacon eat both. Could they have drank some stanging water or gotten ahold of a dead animal. Hoping its nothing too serious

    Sam not likely. but Erns may have got into some old water somewhere.

    What would you suggest if it is this.

    I guess if it was me it would depend on any other symptoms, extreme lethargy, vomitting etc... but if its just a case of loose poops, I'd with hold food for a day and then start them back on a bland meal or two. If you are worried though don't mess around, have them checked out.

    ***sigh*** hope they both feel better soon.

    the fact they are both off is a bit scary - and also indicative that they might have gotten into something

    if salmon or chicken is new to them it's quite possible that one or the other disagrees with them ...

    fingers crossed they are back to themselves in no time

    I hope they feel better soon. No advice really. It's odd that both of them are sick.

    Sorry just having a wee panic. Erns not wanting to play isn't like him. Feel better about waiting until I can see the vet and not going to bang on the door.

    I think it is more coincidence they are both sick.

    Or they may just have a tummy bug that both got exposed to. You know how a virus is it seems all the kids in the family get it.
