    DefaultJazzy is sick and we're away from home...help! -Update

    Jazzy and I drove to Atlanta today to visit my parents.* Two hours in to the trip she threw up.* When we stopped at a Rest Area, she had runny and bloody stools!* Jazzy isn't a dog to get car sick, and the blood* at the end of her stool freaked me out.* We made it to Atlanta(A 7 hour trip) she ate okay and went out and had another episode of loose stools with blood.* Should I try to find an emergency vet tonight?* I am so worried.* I can't go back home earlier than Wednesday to her vet.

    I did end up calling the Emergency vet Sandy recommended and they suggested I wait until this morning, feed Jazzy boiled chicken and see how the next poop looked.* Evidentally there is something called stress colitis which can be brought on by travel as well as other things.* I did as suggested and everything looked "normal" today.* ;D What a scare.* I still am going to have her checked over by her own vet when we get home.*
    Thanks again Sandy for all your help!

    Where are you? There is one on Lawrenceville/Suwanee Road right off the interstate.

    I would definitely go to an emergency vet.

    I'm near Sandy Springs, but I know I passed Lawrenceville signs on the way down here on I-85.

    Bloody stools could also be an indication of hookworms. What type of HW meds do you use? Unfortunately, my vet just closed. Okay, there is one near there; hold on a sec.......

    If you decide to wait until morning and want to go to a trusted vet; PM me and I'll send you my vet's info.
