Dog Problems

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, maybe you could help me out.

My dog who is 3 years old recently has been puking up blood, this has happend on thre different occasions, of course I brought him to the vet and she said the only thing to do was to bring him to souix falls to have him evaluated by sticking a tube down his mouth and seeing if there is anything wrong with him.... He is overall happy and has no signs of anything else wrong with him...

has any one else had this happpen b4?

thanks

Either take him to Souix Falls or get a second opinion from a different vet.

IMO you need figure out what is going on asap...

Any blood in his stools (bright or dark blood)?

Well....my thoughts are still the same. I would still get him checked out asap. IMO it's your responsibility as the dogs owner/care taker to make sure nothing is wrong with him. It's always going to cost money/time to do this but it's being responsible.

Might turn out to be nothing....but I would sure be upset if it turned out to be very significant and your buddy is no longer around because you chose to hold of on getting it diagnosed.

Vomiting blood can have multiple causes. Ulcers, parasites, foreign bodies, etc. Endoscopy (sticking a tube into the stomach and first part of the small intestine) is a great way to determine what is occurring. Relate it to yourself. If you start vomiting blood, you would probably be a little concerned. The same concern has to be passed onto your dog. Definitely consider going to someone who has endoscopy.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
