Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Separation anxiety or sickness? Empty
PostSubject: Separation anxiety or sickness?   Separation anxiety or sickness? EmptySat Feb 01, 2014 2:00 am

Ugh, I feel like every time I post on here it's because I worry about my pups when any little thing goes wrong, lol!

Anyway, we are out of town visiting my SO's brother, so we are having a very reliable family friend watch the dogs. He knows that, since Repede is a puppy, he has to keep his eye on him all the time to ensure he doesn't get into something he's not supposed to. Anyway, I guess at some point today, Repede threw up all of his food and went and took a two hour nap. After the nap, I guess he began acting a lot more lively (more like his usual self). He did throw up a little bit more, but he is drinking plenty of water as usual, so I doubt he's dehydrated. However, I guess he wasn't too interested in his food tonight and just looked at it. Our friend added some water to it and Repede finally became interested in it and ate some. Still acting normal, and as of now, he hasn't seem to have thrown up.

Now, I've read that this could be a stomach bug or separation anxiety. He has gotten the stomach bug a couple of times, but what concerns me was his disinterest in his food, as he's normally a little piggy when it comes to food. At what point should I become worried? We won't be coming home until sunday, and if I can avoid making our friend take Repede to the vet, I would really like to avoid the hassle.

At what point do I differentiate his symptoms being due to separation anxiety or an illness? And if they are from an illness, when should I take him to the vet? I'd hate to end our vacation early if it's just a minor case of anxiety or a small stomach ache, but I will if I need to.

It was probably just that he was eating way to fast and got a belly ache puppies tend to do that a lot Nala even still does it now and then, I wouldn't be too worried he probably just got scared that's why he is timid towards the food now, but to help him get back into the routine of eating i would throw little bits of treats into the food and see if that helps, i just noticed this post was awhile ago so it probably doesnt help out now haha sorry!
