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.

    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
    • Lots of talk on sports radio and social media lately on whether the Wolves should workout a deal that sends Wiggins to Cleveland for Kyrie. Of course there would likely be some other bit players involved to make contracts work, but for all intents and purposes it's Wiggins for Kyrie.   As a fan, would you do it, yes or no?   I'm personally leaning toward "no." Kyrie is very good and still young. But he doesn't seem to offer much beyond scoring - not a prolific assist guy and his defense has never stood out. Perhaps most importantly, if reports are true and one of the main reasons he wants to leave Cleveland is so he can be the primary star on his own team - that makes me question what type of leader, team player, and locker room presence he would be. Say what you want about Lebron, but on the court he seems like an ideal teammate, almost too willing to make the extra pass. And Cleveland still has one of the best routes back to the Finals, why would you want to get away from that?
      Wiggins certainly has his faults, but he is a dynamite scorer. His defensive is poor, but at least the tools are there to be a good defender. If we lose him we also have a pretty big hole to fill on our roster. Whereas right now we have what appears to be a solid PG in Teague.    I wouldn't hate it if we landed Kyrie, but with our current situation I prefer Wiggins. All in all though, it's certainly fun to finally be in a situation where stars want to play here, not avoid Minny at all costs.
    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are the only thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires.
