Oscar Update

Thank you all for your kind words re: Oscar. Thankfully, I think he is going to be okay. I came in to work late today and left at lunch to check on him, and he seems to be feeling much better. He ate his breakfast with no evidence of throwing it up and has had a couple little poops. I think we are on the right track. He is more feisty today and actually ate his treats after we went outside, so that is a good sign. Thank you again--it is always good to know that I am not the only dog-obssessed person out there who worries sick about my little puggies! And the lesson learned--NO MORE RAWHIDES EVER!

  • Poor Oscar! It sounds like you guys had a rough couple of days, but we are so glad to hear it wasn't anything too serious. And no more rawhides for us either!

  • I'm so happy that Oscar is doing better! A couple of years ago, I gave Winnie a greenie and it loged (sp?) in his intestines. He did the same thing Oscar did...pacing around and sitting in weird places. I knew something was wrong when I took him outside and he just laid down. He had been throwing up the night before as well. I took him to the vet and they had to monitor him overnight (with an IV!) to determine if he was going to pass it or need surgery. He passed it the next day. $500 later he came home a happy pug! Luckily, it sounds like Oscar passed it without the need for a vet visit (because, really, there is nothing much they can do but wait and do x-rays every so often to see if there is swelling in the intestines). So, it sounds like you did the right thing!!
    P.S. the vet's office warned me to never give animals greenies b/c apparently they had (at that time) several dogs and cats that had choked on them or they had loged in their system. Just a word of warning if you use greenies (not rawhides).

  • I missed the post about this until right now. I am glad he is on the road to recovery. It's always so scary when they eat something that causes problems. I don't like to give mine rawhides either. I don't like to give them real bones from steak either. I took Sugar for an annual check up last week and asked the vet if I could bring Chichi in for him to just look at her. Since she is so old and feeble now, I just worry so much but I think I must sound like a nut wanting to bring her in because she's not spry like she used to be. The vet said he'd be glad to look at her. I'm relieved that I'm not alone in my worries.

  • I agree...We hadan issue with rawhide with Belle..she did the same thing. she threw up and up and up...until the chunk she ate came up. No more of those for them either! Glad oscar is okay!

  • So glad to hear Oscar is better! I bet that rawhide was all knotted up in his system trying to make its way through. Probably not a pleasant feeling.
