Well tonight has been weird. I was on the computer playing my ever so favorite Word Whomp and was startled by some strange sounds in the house. All the kids were asleep due to the Easter Bunny coming so I thought one of the kids had gotten up. To my horror my beloved Maggie was throwing up everywhere. I noticed huge chunks of the Nylabone (the one for chewers) I had taken away from her because she devoured half of it in 5 minutes (she is a major chewer) mixed in with her food . I cleaned up the 8 piles of vomit to turn around to her having diarrhea. I am really starting to freak out. I checked the Easter candy and she did not get into it. The only thing I can think of that made her sick is the Nylabone. I can't seem to find chews for her. She chews everything to shreds. I would have never thought she would chew up a non edible for chewers nylabone. I am shocked. She is resting right now but I am freaking out that she will get sick again. She does not have a fever and I am giving her ice to hydrate her. Anyone else ever have this problem??? Can dogs get the "flu"???? Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated I am so worried.

I would look into the vet as well, my Penelope got sick right after New Year's like that and she did need IV fluids. She got sick while we were sleeping and continued that morning. I couldn't get an appointment until 4:00 the next day, but they said that I could bring her in so they could monitor her and the doc would try to see her in between the other appointments. They saw her earlier and she was getting quite dehydrated. They can get stomach bugs, as we never figured out why she got sick, she may have eaten a firework even. We watch her closely, but she is a vacuum! I'd stay away from the nylabones. Just invest in some Kongs that you can stuff with treats! Get Well!

Hi, Amy
If it were me and my dog had thrown up that many times and then developed diarrhea, I would call the ER vets right away. Losing that much fluid is never good. She may need to get some iv fluids. It never hurts to err to the side of caution.
