We have a six year old mini doxie approx 12/13 lbs. On July

We have a six year old mini doxie approx 12/13 lbs. On July 1, 2016 Andie was acting very weird, took him to a local vet who x rayed and found two bristle like objects in his stomach, which turned out to be bristles from a BQ brush. He was immediately operated on - one bristle was found in stomach, the second had punched the stomach wall.He is home, staples out and does not want to eat. The vet put him on Cerenia, which we understand is like dramamine. with this he drools and still wont eat. We have been force feeding him thru this whole ordeal. Just within the last few days we have noticed him having maybe what might be called a mini seizure. We have purchased some very good food , which my husband rolls into a ball and force feeds Andie. We have taken him back to the vets and all w see are dollar signs. Understand his tummy is probably real sore inside and may take a longer period of time to heal. We are at a loss for our little Andie Any suggestions or remedies are totally welcome

My 15lb & 8 year old dog received a 16 mg Cerenia tablet

My 15lb & 8 year old dog received a 16 mg Cerenia tablet today at 12:00 p.m. for periodic vomitting and diarrhea (she has significant food intolerances and someone in the dog park likely gave her a treat without asking).Based on her current behaviour, she is in pain from a recurring issue she has with one of her elbows. Can I also give her the 50 mg of Gabapentin and 25mg of Tramadol (both every 12 hours) that were prescribed for treating her elbow pain?

I have a 10 year old female Alaskan Malamute that has

i have a 10 year old female Alaskan Malamute that has pancreatitis. I called the vet over to my house and she checked her out and took blood and sent it to the lab and i got the results Tuesday. She is on meds now for it since Wednesday. Tramodol for pain and Thyroxine because She does have underactive thyroid gland. Her hormone level is actually too low to read! She is also in early kidney failure. the vet also gave her low fat, easy to digest food, but she has not eaten in 7 days, Just drinks water, i try to give her as little as i can so she dose not have much. She was vomiting up yellow liquid on monday July 11th just before the vet came over. She kept vomiting though the week until saturday mid day.The vet gave her nausea tablets (Cerenia) and a coating agent (Sulcrate) in hopes that she will feel better enough to eat, and directions how and when to give here all the meds. That was Saturday. I gave her 1 Cerenia right away for the vomiting and within 5 minutes she vomited up the pill. Since then i have not given her that pill. I did give her the Sulcrate and am still giving her the tramadol and Thyroxine. I noticed on saturday night that she was salivating bad then and still is now and she cant get up now. My dog is real heavy and it looks like every 20-30 minutes she salivates bad like maybe she wants to vomit. I cant get her to eat and i thought she might be weak from not eating or even dehydration. I left a call in for the vet to come over tomorrow but she has not replied yet. any ideas what i can do? i put a small video up on youtube of her just now i took it so you can see her .https://youtu.be/VkytgitxgrU

Our dog's appetite slowly started to decline about 3 months

Our dog's appetite slowly started to decline about 3 months ago with occasional vomiting. About 5 weeks ago when she almost completely stopped eating. At that time blood tests, stool, and x-ray showed nothing. We tried various other dog foods, I/d food, tried raw food, rice, pumpkin...there was nothing that she would eat for more than 1 or 2 meals, and reluctantly at that. She has lost a lot of weight and has been getting increasingly weak. An ultrasound a few days ago showed mottling in the liver and possibly the spleen. Vomiting frequency has increased to every day or a few times a day. Yesterday she had black diarrhea and her gums may be a little pale but I'm having trouble remembering how pink they should be. We think she probably has cancer, but don't want to put her through an exploratory surgery that she probably won't recover from. Is there anything I can do to get her to eat? Is she in pain? How can we make her more comfortable? Should we end her suffering or let her pass naturally?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about I?Customer: She has been on prednisone for about a week, hoping it would increase her appetite. Yesterday she seemed to have a bad reaction to the first dose of cerenia so I didn't give her today's dose (60 mg).

I have a 10 year old lab who has been quite unwell lately.

Hello,I have a 10 year old lab who has been quite unwell lately. At the end of May I believe he got into something he shouldn't have and went through about two weeks of vomiting (2x/day) before we started him on a bland diet and brought him to the vet. The vet prescribed cerenia which seemed to take care of the vomiting, but his appetite was still not normal. He went about 1 week with very little food before We brought him in again. He was tested for pancreatitis, kidney and liver failure, tick-borne diseases, and Addison's. He tested normal in everythi, except that he was on the low side of normal for the Addison's. We couldn't afford the expensive Addison's test to confirm, so his vet recommended that We start him on a low-cost prednisone treatment. Of he responded that meant it was Addison's and We had it under control. He went a good 3 weeks of normal eat in (still no kibble) before taking another turn for the worst. Now, for the past week he hasn't eaten more than one serving of food total. We have been trying anything we can think of to get him to eat (homemade dog food, canned food, table food...) and nothing seems to help. He is nauseated in the morning so we have been giving him gravel, which seems to help curb the drooling, although it does make him sleepy. Obviously, he has been losing weight, as he has not been eating, but tonight his belly is blown up like a balloon. Can you please advise me as to what to expect? Is this it for my poor dog? Is the inflated belly a sign of his systems shutting down? He seems so weak and has very little energy. I am so worried that this is the end for my best friend. Is there anything else I can try? I really appreciate the help!

My dog is constipated due to we are treating m eating grass.

My dog is constipated due to we are treating him for over eating grass. I think the pain Meds we had him caused the constipation. I can tell he needs to go but won't. There is no bowel blockage as he had an ultra sound yesterday to check to see if there is a reason for him eating so much grass and they found no blockage or reason for the grass eating. What can I give him to assist him in having a bowel movement?
