|Wed, 6 days ago, I came home from work to vomit all over the three rooms that Hercules has access to while I'm out of the house. That night Hercules wouldn't eat any food which is so out of character for him. All he wanted to do was drink water but after he drank water he would throw it up. The vomit was mainly clear (except for the two vomit spots that had food chunks in it from breakfast). Thursday, same; Friday morning the same so I took him to the vet. They took blood tests that ruled out Pancreatitis and kept him for the day giving him fluids via IVs. Sat, no change so I took him back to the vet and they put him on IVs all day, Sunday was the same routine. All this timehe has not eaten anything. Today, Monday, I took him back to the vet, they tested his blood again and according to his blood work he's doing better but he's really not. The vet did an endoscopy which showed no blockage but his stomach lining is black which according to the vet is not the color that it should be. They are keeping him overnight and giving him IVs. The vet seems to be at a loss. I'm in Korea and while the vet speaks pretty good English, I'm having a hard time getting a straight answer as to what is exactly wrong with him and if he'll get better. the answer that I get is that he has a very bad gastric problem and that he hopes that Hercules will wake up better.
Hercules has had no diareah, his vomit started out clear, then two days later turned to dark green and now is coffee color. I have googled dog gastric problems but am coming up empty. Any insight or direction would be great!
