Yesterday I took Homer to the hospital after the terrible night he spent on tuesday (throwing up and sever diahrrea for the third consecutive day).

It is confirmed it is not parvo (thank god). It is a severe case of enteritis (looks like amoeba is the f... bug!) that got worse because the antibiotic that was administered seems to have problems with the non-corticoid anti-inflamatory he´s taking for his elbows (meloxicam I think).

He doesn´t have fever anymore, and despite the weight loss looks in a good mood and is well hydrated.

It seems he picked it at the park in front of my place, from smelling other dogs´s waste that nasty people don´t pick up :mad:

Unfortunately I will not leave my dogs off leash ever again, since they think they are goats and insist on gobbling the un-edible... sorry for them, but this has been too much, I thought he was going to die...

Glad he's on the road to recovery. I don't know why they insist on eating gross and disgusting things but they do. Boo is the one here who will try to eat the most ugly things. She's nuts!!

Same thing happened to us a couple years ago at the dog park. Bo was in ER and hosp. for 2-1/2 days. Never went back. Glad Homer's doing better

Thanks so much. Went home during lunch time to check him and things were still OK, found nothing gross...

Hope to find everything in order later when I get home.

Thanks all for the good wishes
