Thank you.

He is sleeping on his back with all fours in the air right now, so he's feeling better, I think. I normally don't see sick dogs or dogs in distress sleeping like that.

I appreciate your answers....thank you!!!!

Yesterday Gus had an obvious stomach upset...threw up his breakfast, was sad and lethargic all day (even though he still was a bit interested in his tennis ball). I "fasted" him for the rest of the day, and toward evening gave him a couple of doses of Pepto-Bismol, which seemed to make him more comfortable -- he stretched out and slept, instead of laying in the "Sphinx" position with an anxious look. He was very quiet all night and I worried about him.

This morning he woke up and he is right as rain. He got cooked rice with chicken broth for breakfast and will get the same (with some chicken added in) for dinner. He is acting very hungry!

Gus goes through this cycle a couple of times per year. I wonder what causes it? I don't think he's had an opportunity to get into anything bad for him...

Rose started acting pretty lethargic on Thursday night. Friday morning she threw up her 6am food. She drank some water and then settled down. I did not feed her until about 7pm. This morning she threw up again. I am not sure if she also threw up during the night; found four places under the bed where she threw up.
Since I had a 10:30 office app't - which is late grrrr - my DH and DD is with her at the vet this morning.
So far no pancreatitis, no ear infections.

Aw, hopefully they will give her some fluids. I would rest her tummy some more and not feed her today. Then if no vomiting offer her water, if no vomiting do the bland diet in small frequent meals. If she continues to vomit then would start to worry. Did they take any xrays or do bloodwork?

I was not that worried yesterday morning, especially since she regrouped herself and was quite alert and happy. Today I went into panic, a panic that cost me $273. DH just got to the office and they gave her a Cerenia shot and pills starting tomorrow.
If she continues to throw up we'll do x-rays to make sure nothing is stuck. She has destroyed one toy but we threw it away before she could get anything. I cannot think of anything else that would cause a blockage.

Dex has been eating and playing all day. His poos are of normal consistency but he just had a HUGE puke, it was basically everything he's eaten this morning. Should I just watch him at this point?

My sweet Maggie was doing that intermittently over the last several weeks. She would be fine most of the time. She ended up not holding anything down 2 days ago. She had surgery today due to a blockage. She had an assortment in her belly.

I find a soup made with chicken breast, white rice and chicken broth pureed has helped immensely. Less work for the digestive system. Pumpkin puree added also helps digestion.
