|I came home last night and noticed my ten week old Caviler seemed bloated, and could not pass stool. I took him to the emergency vet, thinking it was constipation. The vet said his stomach was distended and did X-rays. It was worse than my mom and I feared. The x-rays showed a large blockage. The vet gave him an enema and said it looked like he had leaves in his stool. He had often been picking leaves up outside as well as grass, but I always took it away from him. I didn't realize he was eating any It makes me feel horrible. She said it could also have been from him eating too much.
A second X-ray showed he had passed some of the blockage, but there was still a ball of it in him. The vet tried to break up the blockage.
A third X-ray showed the ball had broken up and cleared.
He was given medication to stimulate stool.
We only came home from the vet a few hours ago so the puppy is sleeping. He had two enemas. The vet said to watch for diarrhea and vomiting. If these things happen to rush him to my vet.
I have an appointment wensday for my puppy, should I try to get him in today instead?
Should he be okay now that the blockage is clear?
