YAY - way to go Clover!! What a relief...

I had the same thing happen with Max once. Horrible vomiting, then dry heaves, then this horrible choking sound. I called my vet immediately (who of course was not nearly as panicky as I was). He said the choking was from acid reflux after all the vomiting. He told me to wait for a while, feed him a tablespoon of baby food to settle his tummy, wait another half hour, another tablespoon of baby food, etc. It worked! In 12 years, it had never happened before and it never happened again.

Yea for Clover and Robin.

Clover you just keep up the improvement and Raya says milk that home cooking for all it is worth.

Robin, grab a nap if you can, running yourself until you can't go any farther is not good for you.

I hope Clover continues to improve. I feel your pain. I am keeping positive healing vibes for you both (and your daughter too). When it rains, it pours!

Siena went through that when she was 4 months old (same age as Clover) and it ended up being an intussussception (the intesting telescoping inside itself and getting stuck). With the intussussception, it can come and go, so please keep an eye out for symptoms like he experienced. With Siena, no U/S was available, so they did an exploratory, found nothing (as they pull out the intestine to check for blockage it 'opened' the telescoping). But, one full week later, she was still very sick and close to dying. Took her to an E-Vet where they did another surgery and fixed her up good (although she lost about 6 inches of her intestine.)

I had never heard of this condition before, but it can effect young puppies (and children) and isn't too common, but the vet said it is an "unlucky puppy thing" which in her case was partially caused by a severe case of Giardia combined with food sensitivity (chicken) and IBD, causing inflammation in the gut that her body could not handle.

Please, please keep us posted. The pic of clover reminds me so much of Siena... poor guy. Best of luck.
