Josh's human here, so sorry we haven't been around much. Busy busy busy! Am just stopping by to give you guys a quick update and ask for you to keep my little white boy in your thoughts. Somehow a can of cooking grease that my brother had put in the outside trash a few days before ended up in our backyard & little white dog got into it. We have no idea how it eneded up there, & the dogs have not way at all of getting into the trash but Josh sure enjoyed it & ate half the can.
We of course knew this was not a good thing & kept a close eye on him. He woke me up at 4am Monday morning with diarrhea & was feeling a bit of the rest of the day. Though he slept all through that night & was acting like his normal self up until Tuesday night when the diarrhea returned. He woke me up at 2:30 this morning & with the same problem but just worse. We gave him some pepto & let him out for a while and headed back to bed with no issues. Later that morning he was a bit better but super tired. His poop problems continued the rest of the day & his behavior was different as well. My usual happy, spunky, outgoing boy just wanted to sleep and was very reserved. He has yet to vomit though & is still accepting food fine (It is Josh after all it would take a lot for him to refuse any food!). We have been monitoring his water intake & have didn't feed him dinner tonight and he will be getting rice and maybe some chicken for breakfast.
If he doesn't improve he will be going to the vet, and since I work at an animal clinic I may just bring him in with me Friday when I go in. Please do keep my sweet boy in your thoughts though, it breaks my heart to see him like this. And since he is still having his poop problems we will have to set him up in the bathroom tonight but I will most likely end up sleeping in there with him. I just love this little goofball, I mean I am willing to sleep in a bathtub for him after all ;)
Also: A new friend of ours, Ziva, who was helping us & giving advice got into some bad turkey grease tonight and is not doing well. Her owner just rushed her to the E-vet, please keep her in your thoughts as well!

Oh no, grease is not good. I was eating lots of junk like torn up pieces of tennis ball other dogs left at the park, etc. I took Pepto too. We know Abby is doing the right thing watching you. Keep drinking and hope your stomach settles soon.
P.S. Thanks for the football! I am 62lbs now
Thanks Huey! Wow 62!!? Cannot believe it, weren't you just a little guy?
Ihope and pawray that you will be feeling a lot better, furry soon!
Grease is not a good thing...I sure hope all that he has is some indigestion, and nothing worse.
The vet dudes are good at figuring out these things, so by all means bring him over there, at least if it is nothing you will still not be doing anything but good...
our thoughts are with you guys.. keep us posted!
Hope Josh is feeling better soon!
oh noes, we are sending POTP his way and for a speedy recovery
Sending tons of POTP for Josh. Hope he starts to feel better real soon. Be sure to keep us posted on how he is doing.
Lotsa prayers on the way... if he doesn't feel better soon, might oughta take him to the vet so's they can watch for pancreatitis.. Momma had a basset who got that after she ate some meat scraps.. she was okay after a while... Josh has just got to get all that fat outta his system. Poor little guy.
Hang in there, Josh. Take your meds and get some rest, you'll feel better real soon.
Sending lots of POTP.
Oh Joshy, you better stay away from all that grease. It is not good for pups. I hope you feel better real soon as well as Zive.
