This handsome dude is Brody, who is his dad’s No. 1 buddy. Unfortunately, Brody started throwing up and acting very sick.
An occasional, isolated bout of vomiting may not be of any concern for seasoned dog owners. Your pup may vomit simply because he's eaten something disagreeable or gobbled down too much food, too fast. But vomiting can also indicate something far more serious, like your dog may have swallowed poison, or may be suffering from a condition that requires immediate medical attention like colitis, parvo, pancreatitis or even an obstruction. If your dog’s vomiting is not an isolated incident, please bring him to the vet for an exam.
Brody's dad knew that he had to be seen right away, so he took him into the vet for an exam. Fearing a possible obstruction, the vet made sure that x-rays were included with Brody’s examination.
Please note, Fur Kids Foundation encourage you to seek veterinary attention if your dog shows the following symptoms accompanied by vomiting.
If your dog vomits more than once during the course of a day, or if vomiting persists past one day, you are also encouraged to see a vet.
It's just Brody and his dad, and his dad just started receiving disability, so he was very concerned over how he was going to be able to help him. Earlier in the year, Brody had an ear infection, so his dad knew the Fur Kids Foundation could be an option for him. He re-applied, and we were happy to help.
Luckily, the vet did not see anything in his belly, so Brody didn’t have an obstruction. Brody was sent home with antibiotics.
