This beauty is Roxi, a 2-year-old Blue Nose American Bully. Not too long ago Roxi gave her mom quite the scare: out of the blue Roxy woke up, vomited bile (that yellow liquid on your floor) and then started having diarrhea. Her mom was deeply concerned.
Even though Roxi's mom has been a responsible pet parent and made sure Roxi had her vaccinations, she still feared the worst: parvo.
Roxi lives in a single-parent household and things have been a little stressful lately for mom. Mom is recently unemployed and has been relying on child support to help with the day-to-day bills. Mom is getting by, but she really couldn’t afford any financial surprises, like taking Roxi to the vet. When Roxi got sick mom wasn’t sure how she’d pay for an emergency vet visit, so she applied to Fur Kids Foundation for emergency veterinary help. We were happy to make sure Roxi got the help she needed.
Luckily after the vet visit, Roxi's family learned that their beloved pet was just dealing with some gastrointestinal issues—no parvovirus for this sweet girl!
According to Pet MD, digestive disorders are fairly common for our canine friends. Paying close attention to what your pooch eats can help you spot the cause of any digestive/gastrointestinal issues that may arise. You can read more about digestive problems in pets here.
All Roxi needed was some medicine to help clear things up. We're happy to report that Roxi is making a full recovery!
