Health Question for a Lab

6 posts in this topic

Starting on Wednesday afternoon, my 15 month old yellow lab wouldn't eat is normal food...which he usually mows on as soon as I set down the bowl. He's drinking water as normal.

He is also throwing up during the morning and sometimes during the day. It's mostly liquid in the mornings, and if he does eat (usually less than 1/4 of his normal amount) he throws some of that up...but he has also had "movements" that I have witnessed in the yard. I tried to mix in a little rice last night, but he wouldn't touch it.

Also, until this morning he felt like he had a fever, however as I mentioned, it felt this morning like it has gone down.

He energy and willingness to play as not changed one bit. He is normal from that standpoint and still wants to play all the time. He is not slugish, or sleeping all the time.

He may have gotten into something...I'm not sure since I live in Bloomington along Nicollet Ave., things do fly/fall into my yard that aren't usually there.

Can someone give me some sort of idea of what the heck is wrong with my hunting buddy? I plan on calling my vet today to describe what I have above, but I wanted to get some input from someone who may have experienced the same sort of thing.

Thanks All.

Gregg

Dogs get sick and contract illnesses from humans.

With the bug going around I wouldn't doubt if thats the case.

As long as the dog is up on his shots, )Canine Distemper, Canine Adenovirus, Canine Parvovirus) I'd wait and see how he does considering you said "He energy and willingness to play as not changed one bit." If that changes or if he is still sick after a week I'd bring him into the Vet.

Thanks,

However, the issue of shots is what has me concerned...he is going in next week to get all his yearly shots. He is due for them...but him being sick has me concerned that he caught something that might end up hurting him...I don't know.

I have 2 yellow labs and from my experience if he got into something he should be throwing up at least some evidence of it. if the dogs personality is unchanged thats a good sign one of my labs (appropriately named "critter") had to have surgery for an obstruction that would not pass and perforated her intestine but you could tell as she had a sad look on her face and was much less active than usual, if ur dog is having normal bowel movements should be ok sometimes they get into stuff they can pass but it still irritates their system,hence the lack of appetite and throwing up if thats it it should go away in a couple days! my other dog developed an allergy to her food threw up 6 or 7 times a day after the vet found nothing wrong with her we changed her food to science diet and problem was solved! if ur dogs personality changes or wont eat call the vet!

I would just air on the caution, and get to the vet, If there is no problem you can get the shots anyway. Good luck, hope hes OK.

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
