I Got Upset Tummy


Hi furiends. This morning I woke my mom up early to let her know I wasn't feeling good. My tummy was hurting so bad I was shaking and grunting from the pain. Mom left work to come get me after the vet's office opened cause she knew I wouldn't be acting this way if I wasn't hurting alot. And let me tell you, I felt so bad I wasn't even excited about going bye-bye.

Since I didn't have an appointment we had to wait about 45 minutes before the nice lady vet could see me. Then she looked me over, stuck her finger in my hiney and gave me a shot for my tummy and took me in another room to give me "something to make me poop". And boy did I ever poop! The lady vet said I might have eaten something that didn't agree with me and hopefully the medicine would help "settle my tummy". If not, then I will have to go back in the morning to have some pictures taken of my innerds. Mom told the vet it was possible that I ate something outside yesterday when she was busy painting and not able to watch me. Yeah I like to chew on sticks, but I don't normally eat them. Maybe I did eat a few and don't remember it. But the vet tech didn't see any pieces of wood in my poo. So it's any buddy's guess what the real problem is.



Anyways, I am back home now and 'cept for some "leakage" (the reason for the towel) I am feeling some better. The vet told mom to limit my food today and tonight feed me some boiled chicken & rice. Woo-wee! If a trip to the vet gets me yummies like that I might start going more often. Well not really, cause being sick is no fun and my mom could have used the $$ on something else.

Update-2pm

I'm still not feeling well. Mom ate her lunch awhile ago and I wasn't even tempted to beg. I even stayed in my sick bed when mom fixed Banjo his lunch. She has been messing around in the kitchen, cooking the chicken and rice for my supper and I haven't gone in to ask for a bite. I'm just not interested in food today. Which has mom worried cause that is NOT like me at all.

Update- 6pm

I must be feeling a little better cause I ate a tiny bit of chicken and rice awhile ago and kept it down. Mom now has an idea what I ate that made me sick. She was just outside walking around the yard and found a chewed up wisteria seed pod. All parts of the wisteria plant are poisonous, specially the seeds. Mom discovered this a year ago and has been very good about picking up the seed pods when they fall to the ground and/or clipping them from the vine before they fall. Anyways, this tiny pod couldn't have held more than one or two seeds so if I did eat them, (I ain't admitting to nothing), then the symptoms are: "nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain".

So doggies the lesson here is, don't eat things you find on the ground!

We hope you feel better very soon. We've had dietary indiscretions before and they are no fun!

Sorry you don't feel good Bijou. Wonder what you could have eaten to make you so sick.

BTW, contrary to what you might have heard, I've never, ever seen a flying monkey here.

Hope you get well soon.

I am so sad to hear of your tummy woes! I hope that you feel better soon. Oscar sometimes has such problems and we can all hear his insides churning. Gramma will sit up all night holding him. Gramma is the one to go to when you aren't feeling well. Do you think Gramma should come hold you?

I'm so sorry you're sickies. My mom said to tell your mom that sometimes that has happened with my Brudder Ranger (he likes to eats stuff that he shouldn't) and even though it's real scary-like, you'll prolly feel lots better tomorrow.

Get well wiggles & wags,
Mayzie

Oh Bijou,
We are sorry you're not feeling well, Yang has been sick a couple times lately, loosing her meals and then not eating either. But tummy pain on top of it must be awful. Hope you feel better soon, and try not to eat mystery things (we know that's hard to do)

Grins and Kisses,
Ying and Yang

That sounds like a zero fun proposition. I promise to stop eating off of the ground immediately! :)

Hi, Bijou!
I am so sorry you were not feeling well but thankfully you are a little better now!
Chicken and rice are very good for your tummy.

BRUTUS said...

That's a tough lesson to learn (that's coming from one who still hasn't figured it out...)! Don't know how we missed this post, but SO glad to hear things are turning around without the need to see your innards! It does worry the mommas so when we aren't ourselves!
