Ok This afternoon Merlins stools were quite runny and now he has just thrown up, he started to heave and when he finally threw up his sick was green!

Should I be worried about this? He hasnt had anything different to eat than normal with the exception he managed to steal 2 monster munch crisps that somebody had left on the floor on the train!

I have felt his stomach and it feels rather solid, Its not rock hard but it is firmer than normal!

Should I be worried? Should I see a vet?

Green stick is empty belly sick. Firm tummy don't sound too good though. they often tense when in pain which is why it will feel hard. I'd give the vets a call, but I doubt they'll want to see you tonight. Best to double check with them... there has been quite a lot of sickness and shits going about though, so try not to worry too much

I think I would probably ring the vet that is on call and just have a word to put my mind at rest if it was me.
Hope its nothing too serious and he is better v soon :D

Hope he is feeling better soon!! A few months back I had to rush Luna to the vets as I thought she had bloat. Turned out she was fine but I was terrified. I think we've all been there at one point :(

Ok...

The vets have said not to give him anything to eat for the next 24 hours but give him just a mouthfull of water every hour and a half, if he is no better and still heaving and wretching by 11am then I am to phone up for an appointment.

He did say that of course if I become worried throughout the night then I was to phone back for re-assurance.

PHONE BACK??? IM WORRYING MY LITTLE HEART AWAY HERE!

I Cant bear to think of his being ill!

oh no, he sounds poorly :( maybe the vets don't think its serious if they told you to ring for an appointment the next day :) best to just do as they say and if he looks worse then definitely ring!!!!

How is he feeling now? I know you can't compare humans to dogs but the last time I was sick I couldn't even stomach water. I kept trying but kept bringing it back up. NHS Direct advised me not drinking anything else for the entire night no matter how much I wanted to and it worked.

Can you ring another vet and ask their opinion too? Thats what i would do, incase they are wrong

I think if youre instincts are telling you its serious then I would insist on seeing them tonight, or at the very least ring them back and explain how worried you are.

Is it possible at all and i don't want to scare you that he has something in his neck? my mum had a pup a few years ago that was wretching and being sick she was getting worried about her and phoned the emergency vet but she lost her before they got there, she had a small stick lodged in her neck. I hope it's nothing to serious and he gets better soon.
