I've been up with Boomer since 12:30 am (it's 8:30 am now). He started vomiting at around 6 last night, and after 9ish started vomiting very regularly. He was also pacing, not able to lay down for very long, stretching like his abdomen was uncomfortable...it was scary. It seemed to come and go in waves. He liked to lay by me, but then the vomit would come again.
I was on the phone to the e-vet several times, and finally at 5:00 decided to take him in, just to rule out bloat. We had to drive an hour in a snowstorm to Grand Rapids. They took some xrays to rule out bloat and also any obstruction or foreign object. The xray showed a lot of gas (we've been here before) and they gave him an anti-vomit shot and a pain injection.
He was really acting fairly normal at the vet, and on the way home he actually layed down for most of it. Now he sort of seems uncomfortable again. I hope this gas passes...and I really don't know what could've caused the upset tummy. :-\ Poor Boomie.
So please keep him in your thoughts...I hope he starts feeling better soon. I'm supposed to give him a tiny bit of water in a half hour and then start 2 TB of bland diet at 11. I hope he eats. :-\
I'm sorry guys I don't have time for a REAL update...I have GOT to go to bed and get some sleep. Short update though - Boomer seems to be doing MUCH better. Definately not well yet, but it's looking better. I'll try to give you a more thorough update in the morning. I need to go sleep for 12 hours now. :-[ Thanks so much, everyone!!! Keep up the prayers and thoughts!
Aww.... poor Boomer.
I hope your tummy feels better soon, buddy.
