not sure what is going on with him. he is trembling, doesn't want to be around anyone which is not at all like him he has vomitted a couple of time in the last few days, seems to be favoring his left front leg too respiration is rapid & seems shallow i don't know of anything he may have eaten or otherwise exposed to to cause this . also he seems afraid of everyone right now if you go near him he cowers with tail between his legs....... doesn't want to be loved at all any thoughts or ideas???? i am really thinking about taking him to the vet as soon as they open this morning thanks

It's possible it's the Frontline, BUT I would think a reaction would be almost immediate and the fact he seems to be favoring one of his legs seems odd for a reaction. Definitely take him to the vet. Bully breeds are TOUGH and rarely exhibit signs of distress or pain unless it's serious. I'm sure whatever it is will be an easy fix, but don't delay in getting him to the vet. What could be easy to take care of could become A LOT more difficult to treat if you wait.

Please let us know how hes doing!

Are his vaccinations current? I don't mean for the question to be insulting, just asking. He got 3 or 4 sets of puppy shots? Has he been to a dog park, or other public place where dogs frequent?

I sure hope he is ok. It's heartbreaking when one of our family falls ill. Please keep us updated.

Thought I would go ahead and answer some of the questions for you guys. For those that don't know chip is my dad and Titan is one of Sasha's littermates. He is up to date on all his shots got the last set on monday. No he has not been to a dogpark or anything like that, he rarely leaves the house. I just tried to call my dad but got no answer I can only asume he is still at the vet we will keep you guys posted Thanks for the concern.

Cool..didn't know he was your dad and Titan was Sasha's sib. I'm sure the vet will be able to fix Titan right up. Let us know if you hear from him!

This whole thing could be a reaction to the shot. He maybe showing signs of one of the illness that the shot is preventing. I'm sure the vet will know and I hope everything is alright.

Glad to hear your boy is going to be ok. Was the blockage just normal stuff (constipation)or did he eat something he shouldn't have? My boy had a blockage from eating a barbie doll head and had to have surgery last December. Good to hear you avoided that!

Yeah, I can laugh about it now, but shelling out $700 just before Christmas last year, I didn't really find it so funny. :?

the Vet did not seem to think it was anything unusual...the x ray did not show any "objects". It looked just packed it is funny because he went last night & this morning but for whatever reason everything wasn't passing he is zonked out right now i took him out for a bit & he just sat in the sun had a very STONED look LOL i ended up carrying him in put him on the couch he hasn't moved in about an hour.... Thanks again everyone for your concern....

Kasco, no disrespect. Please accept my apologies, I did not mean to laugh at your misfortune, I just found the Headless Barbie funny. I wish you had a appropriate smiley for me to show you how I'd like to make it up to you :oops:
