I bought the chicken chip dog treats which are the size of a nickle and i normally always buy the strip size but went with the chip ones- I gave Louie one and he started YELPING and going crazy- like in major pain. Of coarse im freaking out, not knowing if its stuck in his throat or in his intestine or what- With in a few minutes he was back to his old self- Then yesterday morning he found one of these chips and i was getting ready for work and heard him yelping again and i ran out and he was yelping in pain again- and this time it lasted for minutes and im shaking and all scared thinking somethng is very wrong and i wrapped him in a blanket and called the vets office, which of coarse was closed- But then he calmed down again and laid down and seemed fine- But i did make him a vet appt and we went in at 5 just to make sure it wasnt stuck and the vet could make sure he was fine- As were waiting to see the vet , Louie starts throwing up all over the floor, and was drooling like crazy which hes never done that before. The vet said his stomach is just upset from that treat probably going down hole or in sharp chunks and gave him some meds they use for ulcers in ppl - so anyways all the way home hes throwing up and even home hes throwing up- throwing up dog food and orangie flem- he slept most the afternoon and wasnt playful and wasnt himself. and im thinking he was fine untill i took him to the vets- and it all kicked in there. Hubby thought maybe he was car sick or nervous but the vet said his stomach is just sore probably and uspet- So about 11 last night i make some rice and boiled burger and he scarfs it down, i did only give him alittle i didnt want it to upset his stomach. He drank some water and laid back down- which i slept on the couch next to his bed pillow so i could watch him all night- Ok so far this morning he seems more playful, and again i fed him rice and burger and he scarfed it right up and i did give him alittle more then last night- He has peed but no poop which the vet said this is what im suppose to be watching for , to make sure he isnt straining adn he can go poop and the chicken chip isnt blocking anything- Normally he does poop by now so im kinda getting worried. He does sleep alot- and he is up to date on his shots , i just cant believe this chicken chip could cause so much problems- I will never ever give them any chicken chips again the size is very dangerous and Louie loves chicken treats and does scarf them down quickly so i think he didnt chew it all the way and it was hurting going down.. What should i be doing that im not doing already? I know the rice and burger will probably bound him up wont it? But i didnt think dog food was the way to go and since he has been throwing up all afternoon that the chic and rice would put food in his belly and hopefully help.
Any one have anything like this happen with dog treats? Louie is a maltese and 8 months old- Im very worried and is him sleeping alot ok? Im just really worried and wanted to get some help on what i should do- sorry this is so long i just wanted to vent about what is going on with Louie and this darn chicken chip treats are very very dangerous for small dogs- theresa
beulah gets upset stomaches regularly, she is very sensitive. Just wait. He will poop soon. He threw up everything in his system, there was nothing to go through until the burger and rice. If it is longer than another 24 hours, then you can call your vet, but his system got thrown off. It will regulate itself.
