LadyBailey Posted August 18, 2008 Share Posted August 18, 2008 Hello, Yesterday afternoon around 4pm Bailey got up and wanted to go outside. She walked around and had a couple pees and ate a few blades of grass. She came in and about an hour later she wanted to go out again, but this time she really wanted to ate grass. I figured she was hungry as it was time for their dinner, so I fed her like normal. She went out and a little more grass... but when she came in, she looked nauseous and was swallowing hard. She had a few good burps and that seemed to help, but then she actually threw up her dinner and all that grass about a hour later - this was at 7pm. I spoke to the e-vet and they said that they could see her and give her something for her tummy, so we took her and they gave her a shot of Cerenia and some sulcrate. We got home at 8:45 and she still didn't look settled and was actually crying and stretching. We decided to see once the meds kicked in if they would help her. She fell asleep from 9:15 to 10:15 and as soon as she rolled over on her side, she jumped up and started swallowing hard and looking nauseous. She burped and then laid down again. I decided to give her a pepcid and she laid down for a bit - but again she got up. It was like she was having acid reflux. She didn't have anything in her tummy, so I gave her some Ensure and she drank that. Finally at midnight she jumped on the couch - with me sleeping on the other one keeping an eye on her. I woke to find her in a roach on the couch this morning. I spoke to our regular vet this morning and they said that I could feed her - so I cooked some chicken. She was sleeping so I didn't want to wake her - so she's only eaten now (1pm). She seems to be keeping it down and she isn't swallowing hard or looking off. She is also sleeping on her side and doesn't seem to have the acid reflux thing going on. For those of you have had gone through the surgery, did your dog bloat again and experience gas? What are you feeding them? Do I need to make any adjustments to her diet? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I have some Phazyme on had as of this morning, as I read in another thread that this could help with what we were dealing with last night.
