I have a male boxer burned 10/13/2007. Last week, thought he
Tom, I have a male boxer burned 10/13/2007. Last week, thought he had a UTI because he needed to go to the bathroom through the night. Collected urine sample and had urinalysis done. Vet said it was borderline, but gave amoxicillin. Difficult givingmedicine three time a day. After approx. third day stopped because dog started vomiting and stopped eating. Went to vet on MLK day-performed exam and took blood sample for blood work. Vet called last night with results and related white blood cells were 6 points higher, red blood was at 40 and urinum was low. He thinks potential for spleen cancer and wants to perform ultrasound. Dog was hydrated below skin and given two shots for upset GI. Dog has not eaten solid foods since last Thursday. However this afternoon made him scrambled eggs which he ate and hasn't vomited yet(@1.5hrs ago). I mentioned to the vet during the exam that he had thrown up this rectangular object that looked like straw or sticks. Any advice. Thank you very much and I hope to here from you. Rocky is the most beloved dog and the kids and me have had him since he was a pup. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I have given you everything. He has never been sick. He has annual exams and is up to date on all shots.

My dog has been very ill twice and my vet can't figure ou
Hi Pearl! My dog has been very ill twice and my vet can't figure ou why. But I think he's starting to get sick again. Monday he ate breakfast and I could see the immediately did not feel well. So much so that he went upstairs to bed by himself. That is completely out of character for him he's never done that before. Then yesterday he barely drank any water ( only drank a bit before we went to bed). I do not work so I spend all day everyday with him. And yesterday was normal as far as routine. I have seen this behavior before he got sick last time.Symptoms before getting illFirst thing in the morning after eating, occasionally He will act like he was going to vomit, actally starting to retch but then burp and it would stop, A few times he has vomited. 4 or 5 times over several months not sure a how many months but at least 3 months.)He stopped drinking much water. He drank some but not much. Did not urinate in the morning. This lasted at least a week if not more right up until he got sick. I thought my husband was letting him out to potty when he left for work so I didn't realize he wasn't going potty first thing in the morning. Sometimes he wouldn't go until 1-2pm. He would drink some after play.When he was hospitalized he was retching, visibly in pain shaking, he had no fever. We thought it was acute pancreatitis, which he has had in the past. But all pancreatic enzymes were normal. Had an ultrasound his pancreas was not enlarged like it was infected. His other organs look "perfect" other than some "sludge" in his kidneys, no kidney stones. Xrayed his gut to look for possible foreign objects he might eaten- it showed nothing. Blood work was done on the third day he was hospitalized and it only showed slightly elevated white blood cell count. His treatment consisted of no food for three days. IV fluids for three days. After he came home antibiotics for two weeks. This was last week of November. The vet was worried that he could die. That's how sick he was.He has had no issues up until now. last weekish he was nauseous after breakfast. Once he looked like he might want to throw up and one time retching until he burped.Since he only eats Hills Science Diet Lowfat ID canned for meals and kibble for treats. Nothing else.TJ is seven year old Yorkiepoo. Medical history is pancreatitis. Before the November incident there was another similar incident. It looked like pancreatitis but, no elevated enzymes and ultrasound showed the pancreas was not inflamed no fever.Any suggestions you may have as to what it could be and tests to run would be greatly appreciated.
