Hurry up and open.

I just had the longest night. Buddy started throwing up around 10:00 p.m. Foamy white stuff. He is not pacing and shows no signs of bloat or distress just very lethargic, but I've been petrified all night. This morning has brought more vomiting and liquid poop. (at least its not a blockage) 10 more min until the vet opens. I already have left a message on their answering machine in case they get in early or check for emergency calls.

and before anyone gives me crap about not taking him to an e vet, there isn't one.

I won't give you crap about it. I can't afford $100 just to walk in the door...all the diagnostics after that, easily up to 1-2k.
Let us know how he is.

I know how stressful it can be knowing they're sick, and not knowing what's wrong. I hope you get some answers and that Buddy starts feeling better soon!

At 1 am this morning I would gladly have maxed out my credit card to have someone make him feel better but by the time I got him to the nearest e vet it would have been well past the first critical hrs so why put him through that 100 mile drive. Sitting in vets office now. More waiting.

Hope your doggie is o.k. sometimes we just a stomach upset, or bug.

ftr - keep activated charcoal on hand - for nausea, diarrhea and can absorb poisons and toxins before serious damage.

post treatment after the vet - slippery elm tea - sooth his throat

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

Vet has him on fluids for now she wanted to keep him for a while and I should be able to pick him up later this afternoon. We are both concerned about rapid weight loss 8 lbs in a month when his food and amount he is getting hasn't changed. Possibly not processing proteins correctly or cancer? Am freaking out a lot it is going to be a long day! Will talk with vet more when I pick him up this afternoon.
