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.

Lycus doesn't want to eat :( Empty
PostSubject: Lycus doesn't want to eat :(   Lycus doesn't want to eat :( EmptySun Sep 23, 2012 10:24 am

So yesterday morning Lycus was acting very normal. He is very hyperactive and LOVES to eat. He ate his bowl of food yesterday and then when I let him out to go potty, I noticed him eating a lot of grass. I left him out there for about 30 minutes to run around in the yard but when I came back, I noticed he had thrown up about twice. So I brought him back in and he was acting a little lethargic but not so bad. Then when the afternoon came for his second meal, he didn't eat anything! I even left his bowl in his crate overnight and he completely ignored it. He also hasn't been pooping as much. Very little, so I think he might be constipated? Now this morning he is very lethargic, and doesn't want to eat anything. I even offered him some house food and he turned his head away.
It's obvious he is not feeling well, but I wanted some advice. Our vet is closed until tomorrow so I need some help at least to get him to eat something Sad

Thanks. I just got back from the vet. They did x-rays and blood work. They noticed that his white blood cells were high, so he has some kind of infection. The x-rays also showed that his intestines were a little funny looking. Although, nothing showed up that he swallowed anything. He wasn't dehydrated too bad either. Everything else also came back ok. They prescribed Cerenia to help him vomiting anymore. They also prescribed Primor. I really hope these help him out. They also told me to give him some Pedialight to keep him hydrated. He's just been laying down on his blanket sleeping Sad They told me if he gets any worse to take him in so they could give him fluids overnight. Does anyone have any suggestions on helping him eat? He's completely turning away everything. Also, any ideas on what could be happening? Also, thanks June!

his tummy is upset which wold be why he ate the grass, they do that to make themselves vomit. I know when i have an upset tummy the last thing i want ot do is eat. I'd give him a day or two as long as he's drinking fluids you should be ok. if we can do 24 hour fasts for surgury and other reasons with dogs i don' think missing food for a couple days if going to hurt him. But i do understand your anxiety when your baby won't eat. I hope he starts feeling better soon.

Thanks for understanding! I hope he gets better soon too. He's drinking a lot of water so I know he is staying hydrated which is definitely a good thing. Hopefully within a day or two he will be back to his normal self!

Hey just a heads up (I just saw this thread), the Walgreens brand Pedialite is just as good as the name brand, and the last time I bought it was about half the price.

Hope he feels better soon!

And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Thank you! He is actually looking better now! He is eating very little, but it's a start! Since the meds, and antibiotics, he hasn't been vomiting anymore, and he's starting to walk around on his own again Smile

Glad he is feeling a bit better. It is so scary when they are sick and can't tell you what is wrong.
