Okay, I'll first start by saying that there are very few things that make me mad. But blatantly ignoring my requests is one of them. Our roommate is a slob and generally doesn't care about anything. Conan (our Corgi) and Carl (his dog) will both chew on anything left on the floor, so we ask that he not leave the TV remote in the middle of the living room floor (like he always does). We have Time Warner, so every time our dogs eat the remote, we have to pay for it. This has happened multiple times.
So on Monday morning, he left the cupboard with the dog food bag in it open and the dogs ate a significant amount of food from it. They were both throwing up almost non stop the entire day. Not only am I working on Conan's weight loss, this obviously isn't very good for either dog. So Garrett talks to him, like what the hell dude, pay attention to what you're doing please. And we think it's fine. Though he still wanted to feed Carl dinner that night so he "wouldn't starve" but Carl is at least 10 pounds over weight, and obviously didn't need more food to throw up.
So then Monday night he leaves a big bag of almonds on the kitchen table, and doesn't push the chairs in, and Carl gets on the kitchen table and pushes the nuts on the floor like he always does when you leave a chair out. I swear you guys, it's like our roommate doesn't believe these things actually happen. Like we're just super anal when we ask him to not do crap like leave chairs out and cupboards open. So both dogs were throwing up yesterday too. They also have black tarry poops (which I know could be melena - very bad). I'm not sure though if it's something really serious like that (could both dogs get serious intestinal issues from over eating alone?) or if it's just the food (the dog food they ate was Orijen fish blend), which is pretty dark in color itself.
Should we take them to the vet today if the poops aren't better? I don't think they've thrown up since yesterday. Ahhh I can't even express how mad I am right now. We were going to start Conan in herding this weekend too and now I know it's definitely not a good idea for him to be really active like that. Does anyone know any home remedies we could try to get their tummies feeling better? They didn't get fed yesterday (besides the almonds) and aren't going to get breakfast this morning, and probably not dinner as well. Anyone have any suggestions? Sorry for the length, I think I might already know they need to see a vet if they don't seem better today, I just needed to vent!
