Too Sick for a Walk


The sick pup in his sick bed.

Mr. N was super listless this morning. Even the walk word wouldn’t budge him out of bed and he always wants to go for a walk. He had been having a stomachache for a few days but I took this as a sign that we needed to go to the vet asap.

Luckily, we were able to get a same day appointment and they gave him fluids and anti-nausea medication. When we got home, he decided that he would eat from my hand and ate his first meal in two days.

After lots of napping and another small meal, he had a spurt of energy and ran around the living room chasing a toy for a half hour and demanded his chews. Little Dog is on the mend.

    We saw on FB this morning, and were so happy to hear that Mr. N is on the mend. We know how stressful it is when they are not feeling well.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Mr. N isn't feeling well, It is so hard when a pet is sick! If you're like me, you feel bad about it even though it couldn't possibly be your fault. I hope that he is back to his normal self very soon. I love seeing him on Facebook!

    Poor little guy! I'm so glad he's on the mend. Barley is the same way–if she's not full of energy, I know there's something really wrong with her. Hope sweet Mr. N got lots of snuggles and extra love.

    So sorry to hear that Mr N wasn't feeling well. We hope he is much better. Taffy was diagnosed with IBD earlier this year sometimes it's a good idea to to blood work when you dog's stomach is upset to make sure it isn't more serious. Love Dolly

    Aw, I'm sorry to hear that Mr. N was not feeling well. Not wanting to go for a walk or eat would be a sure sign that something's not right with our pups as well.
    Speedy recovery, little guy!

    Glad to hear he seems to be recovering! What happened that he needed fluids, was he running a temperature or was it because he hadn't eaten? Don't mean to be intrusive, just curious if he had a temperature or had bowel troubles with this incident. Unexplained events like that often point to their food or treats — well, when they are not the type of dog to gobble anything they find on the ground, anyway.

    I'm so glad to see Mr. N is getting his strength back! I hope he'll be back to his old self in a day or two. He looks so sweet in that photo, I just want to kiss his little nosey!
