I love my dogs, they are the best animals I’ve ever seen. But the little one got sick.
Yesterday, he started gagging, I was in the other room and my son came to get me. It looked like he was foaming a little bit, maybe throwing up ? So we took him outside. A few minutes later, he was fine and we brought him back in the house.
For the rest of the day, no problem. Then last night, he started gagging again, but this time it was really bad. Foaming at the mouth, growling, teeth showing, he was almost frozen standing up, but crouched over, he lost control of his bladder and bowels. We called his name and he didn’t respond. We picked him up to take him outside again and he still didn’t move.
We tied him out again, I have kids and I wasn’t sure what was going on. I don’t know much about rabies, but he’s had his shots and he hasn’t been bitten or scratched by anything. I looked it up on the net, but he’s not showing any other symptoms of that.
We kept an eye on him and he slowly came out of it. He started shaking first, then walking, he seem disoriented, and it took a little while before he responded to his name. Then he was fine. He ate all of his food and he was trotting around like normal. It seemed like a seizure.
We called the vet, but the only one that is 24 hour is about 100 miles away, they said it sounded like it was a seizure. She told us to bring the dog to the vet in the morning, but of course, we’re getting hammered with snow and will be unable to travel today or maybe tomorrow.
He was fine for the rest of the night, and so far he’s acting fine today. I’ll take him to the vet as soon as I can, but I’m worried about my little dog.
