    Update - been a crappy day.

    Early this evening Inca started vomiting together with pure liquid diarrhoea. No bad smell, just sick, really sick.

    Thankfully I was able to get hold of my vet on her home number. Following inspection of the vomit, my son and I found a small piece of red stuff. Looked like maybe a peg chewed. looked round the yard everywhere, then my husband remembered he had whipper snipped the fence lines on the weekend. He said he had a problem with the whipper snipper cord. Located the cord, and sure enough, it was red and matched the coated wire in Inca's vomit!

    So, all water has been taken away from her (on strict instructions of vet) and she is having sips periodically of Yakult. Now the question is to ascertain tomorrow is there more in there, is there an obstruction, or is this just another bout of upset stomach?

    Oh the joys of puppyhood. I'm exhausted from stressing I think. She does seem a bit more comfortable, I must say. Will see what tomorrow brings.

    Bugga DA...sounds serious!

    I remember my Rottweiler eating half a doggy frisbee and a shopping bag...sigh. Shopping bag ended up coming through him WHOLE and I had to pull it out of him when he tried to do no. 2's.....frisbee came out on small bits!

    The concerns I guess with the whipper cord is...has it pierced her stomach lining and/or bowel on the way through

    Yeah, that's the worry. or has it obstructed the passage altogether. or was it only that one little piece? Was it, was it, wasit...Garh!

    Hopefully tomorrow will tell the answer.

    I started to, until he explained that he has been having trouble with the cord, and didn't realise it was breaking off in pieces as he used it. well, not until we found it, anyway.

    Oh my. Poor little Inca, I hope she's feeling better soon. Whipper snipper cord is horrid stuff, ours is shocking too. I really hope it's not a blockage.

    So do I Angela, so do I!

    The problem is according to Vet, this may have nothing to do with it, as she has had this problem before. She is more inclined to think it is a gut problem that we have to ascertain and find the best course of action to control.
