I don't know if anyone remembers a person who posted under the user name of commonshcoolboy. He posted about a month ago . His dog was vomiting and had bloody diarrhea. I has posted that I thought if it was dog flu it would most likely be a matter of waiting it out( that didn't mean doing nothing for the dog, no food , no water, no medical attention whatsoever). However in the reply one of my words was omitted(typing too fast, I guess) and it sounded like that was the only thing it could be. I was admonished by another member for giving " bad" advice. Well, if it was actually dog flu- that's what vets say to do, nothing else really works except doing whatever is needed to offset the vomiting/diarrhea . What the member did not realize is that right after I posted, I private-messaged commonschoolboy and gave him more info of what it could be which were alot more serious than dog flu and I stressed that veterinary intervention was needed ASAP. I just happened to come across that thread while doing a Search on another matter and didn't read that member's reply that came after mine. I thought clarification was in order. Done.
