Customer Question
He has a temp...

He has a temp of 103.3 dehydrated and hasn't eaten, no signs of diarrhea, he's a Dobi, do dogs with bloat have diarrhea?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Bodi 3 years old neutered male

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

He ate something 2 years ago that resulted in opening him up and removing it, but otherwise he's healthy

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Bodi

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

No, dogs with bloat do not have diarrhea

I dont think this is bloat

He does have a pretty high fever though

Vomiting?

Blood in stool?
Difficulty breathing?

no diarrhea that I know of, I have him 8 turkey basters of water, he brought up a little bit which included wood chips, no difficulty breathing, feelign weak
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no blood in stool. I don't want to spend another $4000 opening him up like we had to do when he was one, when he ate a piece of towel with delicious afterbirth on it (I breed Chihuahuas) he has eaten some toys, but believed this was in the past. The wood chip was 2" long, I'm wondering why the temp?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
perhaps he's eaten something wooden? would pepto bismol help?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'm waiting on you before heading to the vet, and I think I may have to do that, please reply soon
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
if he needs to be opened up again, I may have to euthanize him :(
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Thanks

Well we need to try and figure out why the fever

It could be that a wood splinter damaged the lining of the bowel and now we have a localized peritonitis

He is pretty young so pancreatitis unlikely

Not saying this is surgical at this point but an abdominal ultrasound and/or chest x-rays would be really smart decisions at this point

I just can't pay another $4000 surgery :( my husband would be livid. I think you're right, something has penetrated his stomach wall, hence the temp...
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

I totally understand

Lets stay positive-> it may just be a simple infection somewhere or some inflammation

Please keep me updated-? I specialize in ultrasound and would be happy to review all findings

Have them run a CBC first to try and document infection/inflammation

Then abdominal scan if painful in the abdomen

Can I treat him myself with antibiotics, I have clavamox, amoxicillin
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

I dont know what the problem is so I cant recommend just treating him with some antibiotics

Not trying to be difficult :)
