I have a request

Can some of you on this forum that have high education put your heads together and come up with an invention so our dogs can tell us whats wrong.

Yesterday day we woke up fed the dogs did our christmas with the kids. Then jag started acting funny.his stomach was hard not swollen wouldnt poop didnt want food and he's a food hound. thought it could be gas or constipated.would lay down just sat on the couch with his head on the back of it.

So i went and got some gas x and some plain yogurt.passed a bit of gas.so today he was the same.gave more gas x and he pooped and puked.still wasnt right. stomach still not bloat out but fear it could happen or starting to. so off to ER vet and xrays were fine he did have some gas but no bloat.

Vet can see he is in pain but doesnt know what is causing it.without doing blood work and a MRI which is $2000.00.so she gave him some food as i hadnt feed him incase it was bloat or bad constipation. a pain shot and sent home some pain meds that will sedate him.

No playing or long walks just try to keep him resting.i wish my baby could tell me whats wrong.

Well jag is a little better today.we havent been letting ginger jump on him.i think now that she might have hurt his lower back or hips. he stretched today for the first time since christmas day which is good as he does this usually after getting up from bed and once or twice through the day.

angeldogs, sorry I just saw this thread. How's Jag doing now? I sure hope he's feeling better. It sounds like you could be onto something with the sore back.

It sure would be nice if they could tell us!

Bloodwork without the MRI might be very helpful. I might suspect pancreatitis?

I noticed today that when he turns in a tight area his back left leg drags abit.but all in all hes back to wanting to play and run around.

DD i hope i am.ginger weighs 50-60 lbs and she will run the jump and land on his back end well he is standing or running. hes not showing any signs of pain anymore but maeds are taking care of that.

Not necessarily.

The first time my girl had pancreatitis, her only sign was an unwillingnes to eat. She seemed to feel great otherwise, it was weird. Later flairs, it was obvious she didn't feel well, but she never did drink much.

Hope it all gets sorted out for Jag. Ginger needs to learn some manners! I used to worry about Halo knocking Shadow down the stairs when Shadow was old and arthritic, Halo would always run right into her. Scared me silly. It's so hard to slow them down sometimes, and they don't mean any harm.
