After two and a half days of diarrhea and vomiting, we took Casey to the vet this morning. The vet said it didn't feel like Casey had any blockage in her intestines, so sent us home with some antibiotics, diarrhea and stomach medicine.

After a 24 hour fast, she got her first solid meal in almost three days (she was DYING you guys! She was starving to death - or at least that's what she would have you believe if you listened to her last night when she realized she wasn't getting any food before bed, lol).

Lean ground beef and plain rice. I tell you, that dog is damn lucky. I don't cook ground beef for NO ONE (not even my husband, I HATE the smell of cooking ground beef. YUCK. The only smell worse is the smell of cooking chicken. As you can gather, we do not cook meat in this house).

I hide her pills in the food and she was so hungry I don't think she noticed. We went outside and she had a semi-solid poop! It wasn't really solid, but it had shape and didn't come spraying out of her backside like a fountain (sorry for the gross description for those who have weak stomachs!)

Hopefully she's going to be OK. I want my whinny energetic puppy back!

I'm glad Casey is feeling better. Noodles has a very weak stomach, so I'm used to him having issues coming out of both ends and it is not fun. I don't think it is fun doing laundry at 2:00 in the morning since he threw up all over the bed (as you can tell, he sleeps with us). Just give it a couple of days. As long as she is drinking water, that is good.

teddy use to get this a lot. the ground beef will help. in the experience of teddy having the runs, he would get this once a month(not sure why) but she will get better in no time:) as long as she has some shape to her poo, she will get better.

Glad she is better! Our doberman gets sick like that a few times a year and it is no fun.

Glad to hear she's feeling better. Jack only got really sick like that once, and it was Christmas Day the first year we had him. He was about 8 months old. He was vomiting foam, had the runs, would not eat and was very lethargic. Were it not Christmas Day I would have taken him to the vet, but he recovered and I'm sure Casey will too. Hopefully she'll be even better tomorrow.
