My dear GuyGuy started vomiting well over a month ago. Since his is extremely rarely ill, I knew something was wrong immediately.Vet says liver inflammation common in older dogs..I thought cancer..so one month of medicine and back for second blood test and everything was back in the red. Plan B: scanner. He has a gallstone. We are working on neutralizing it...His temeprature was down down down to 37°4 and I have been taking temperature in dogs recently, quite a bit. Today he is finally up to 37.8° so we are coming closer to the 38° "normal" for a dog.He was supposed to mate with Iabada and was too weak (I thought it was old age and would rather have him alive than kill him) so Froggy was happy to step in and whambam, one mating (as usual) and he was done.So, I am disappointed with what did not happen and happy he is better..and eating and asking for food, which is nice. He has 2 brothers who have died already, and ...so.Anyway..he may never mate again, but that's life along with a lot of others "things" that happen in the Barbet world. On a happier note, he will be 11 soon..I am ever so proud of him.
