    Default Jingles needed for my daughters Boston.

    Sun/Monday morning our Boston went slumming and raided the bathroom trash helping himself to some "toiletries". Seemed well until this am and started vomiting quite a bit of food/foul smelling liquid.

    Normally I'm not so hyper about some puke but knowing very well what he consumed a few days ago we went into clinic for an X-ray. There are several suspect areas pointing to foreign body. For now hes at clinic getting loads of Iv Fluids and being monitored trying to make the decision whether to leave him at clinic for the night on fluids (they don't have 24 care) transfer him to After-hours clinic to continue fluids or bring home for the night and attempt to monitor fluids myself ( vet tech). Either way his tomorrow am X-ray will determine the next step Surgery or more monitoring.

    Please Jingle hard for him. He is the love of my 6 year olds daughters life her 7th Birthday is this weekend and she just lost her cat.

    Jingles! One of my dogs is a notorious trash raider/floor hoover and I'm always afraid she's going to eat something really bad for her? It's a scary thought!

    Jingles! Just had a friend's medium size dog eat a sock, and he miraculously passed it while they were considering surgery at the vet - here's hoping Boston Dude has a major, productive BM

    Jingles from GA. My baby is currently sitting in a vet's office on IV Fluids for a potential foreign body as well. I am going stir crazy waiting for updates and feeling helpless. I hope you get positive updates in the next few hours and things resolve without surgery.

    Aww I'm sorry to hear that. I truly know the feeling waiting on this am's x-ray results was horrible I was going nuts staring at the phone.

    My guy is home on "watch" they believe hes going to be ok. Thanks for all the well wishes.

    Oh no not a Bostie! They certainly are notorious for eating things that should never be eaten! Mine is especially fond of bugs - dead or alive Fingers crossed for your little guy. They're tough little pups and I hope he is able to avoid surgery.
