Big Guy's Hurtin

7 posts in this topic

This suck!!!

My 103lb 18 month old lab is got a hurtin rearend.

Wednesday the wife came home to a hallway full of diarrhea.

Thursday she came home to the same thing but in front of the living room window.

This morning we woke up to a destroyed living room again. My Big Guy wouldnt he come out of his kennel he was so ashamed. At this point i got mad becuase i new he was a hurtin unit. I finally coaxed him out of his kennel only for him to start puking. I quickly grabbed him and helped him out into the yard. He started puking up pure mucus, gobs, and gobs of it, so much he actually collapsed onto his side from the shock. I quickly grabbed him and took him back into the house were he regained his composure and began eating his breakfast.

I called the vet and they offered to take and watch him. Later they called and said they didnt see to much wrong and that i should starve him through the night to clean his system out and that i should began giving him antibiotics in the morning with this bland dog food they gave me.

anyways...have you guys ever dealt with severe diarrhea before?? I have seen him eat nothing besides his dog food since Sunday. I know he hasnt ate anything outside as i monitor him or train him when he's outside. He's halfway through a new bag of dog food so i know its not the food and He hasnt been swimming since Sunday.

What could cause this?? He's a big tough dog and to seeing him not even able to sit down becuase his butt hurts sucks!!!

Hope all is going well. Your post is a bit hard to read. Have posted this home remedy cure for the runs several times but is worth repeating. First day - no food. Second day - half ration. Third day is normal ration and to the vet if no improvement.

Its amazing what labs can eat. They will eat anything that even remotely has an odor. When mine was young he ate some soap and paid the price.The other day he got a hold of some shoe strings somehow and ate them. Noticed he didnt seem right and then he puked them up, fortunately. There very much like young kids.

we still dont know what caused it, the old timers in the family mentetioned that he could of ate a toad or frog. I could see the toad or frog theory since we have a shaded cool damp backyard.

He's all better now though and back to his old self.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
