.........is that when one is violently sick in the night, you don't know which one!
Oh dear hope it isnt anything nasty!
The mystery of the pukey dog, good luck
Not when they sleep in the bedroom, you usually wake up and see them in the act ... thankfully it's a rare occurrence
Unfortunately mine don't do stairs! It is worrying though, not a problem I had in the bungalow as you say, could always hear them. I shall just be keeping a careful eye on both of them today.
Oh no, hope the boys are okay today
Ha ha I know that feeling, waking up blurry eyed. Thinking I hope that noise isnt what I think it is.
And then there is THAT noise ... heard only once (thankfully) in the middle of the night, after my mum had given the dogs liver and gravy as a "treat"
Oh my :smile:
Thankfully we had not long moved into house and the bedroom carpet needed replacing anyway ...
Hope the boys are both alright today. x
Well, they both seem all right but I have never seen anything quite like it. I won't go into specifics as it would put you off your Easter Eggs. I suspect it may be Ferdie as he is the one who sleeps on the sofa (I think) which is where it started, but again I cannot be sure. They tend to move about a lot in the night, swap places whatever. Ferdie is also a major thief and could have eaten anything when I wasn't looking. I shall just have to keep a careful eye on them. Thanks for your concern.
I can only imagine the scene
Hopefully it was a one - off if Ferdie had stolen something disgusting (and I can relate to a dog that does that ) and they both seem OK now.
I swear I worry about my dog much more than I do myself!
Hope whoever it is they are OK now. Mine have done it here and there for no apparent reason, and been fine after in the past, so hoping thats all it is for yours too.
I know what you mean.. Mine sleep upstairs most of the time.. But I remember one night coming home to find my kitchen full of diarhea.. I didn't know who it was so treated them all the same.. there was that much it could of been all three..
oh yuck, i keep my two crated separately at night, so i would know which was which!
But one night a couple of months ago Rolo kept whimpering on and off, so i thought maybe he needed a wee (not emptied fully before bed and so wasnt sure with him being young etc), so went down, he looked bemused so i let him out and put him back, a little later the same again, but this time when i went down i thought i could smell something, and it wasnt him but Ruby who had a diarrheau in her crate, she was quiet, but he was obviously whimpering to let us know!
I have found that they look after each other. Ferdie has never once woken me up in the night but sometimes Joshua will bark a lot at the bottom of the stairs and I come down to find it is Ferdie who is being sick. Last night though there wasn't a peep. They seem fine, both blotto. I can't take them out as it is too warm but they don't seem to care a lot:001_smile:
What is the sick like Newfiesmum? Rupert has started doing this. Was giving him a handful of kibble at bedtime and seemed to cure it, but then he did it again a couple times the other week.
His sick is quite foamy and mostly liquid at about 5am (after eating kibble at about 11pm). Ours don't sleep together so luckily we know who does what, we have no stairs due to bungalow which is convenient.
Your sick is the gasses building up in the body.. from the tummy having nothing to do..
If Maizie has a long wait between meals she is sick as you describe.. I just make sure Maizie's meal times aren't to far apart..
He gets fed at 8am, 5-6pm and between 11pm-12.30am and is still sick at 5am
Literally three meals a day and he is still doing it
I thought kibble was meant to take 24 hours to digest but he gets kibble in the morning, kibble and wet at dinner and kibble before bed.
If I feed Maizie late in the morn or at tea.. she is sick.. I asked the vet and he said just dont let her go long periods without food..
Yeah I did a thread about it and asked my vet all said feed him before bed but he's still managing to do it. Will be trying him on raw at some point hoping to see a change with that, even with the additional meal he is still sicking up somehow
