    Not sure he is 100% yet. He wasn't looking like he felt to great when I got home, but still has his appetite

    Appetite is a good indicator he is on the mend.

    I would still be very concerned, poor Leo! My bulldog Yuna was throwing up and had X-rays done twice, both showed no blockage. My regular vet was on vaca so I was dealing with other vets and emergency vets. They ran many other expensive tests, all came back negative. Finally after 2 weeks I had it and got a hold of my vet who was finally back from vacation. I called him, he looked at the X-rays. He also didn't think there was a blockage. I told him we needed to cut her open and find out! Alas we found the blue grommit that we have not idea what it even is. It was so lightweight it felt like air in my hand. It had no density. Which is why it never showed up in the X-ray.

    Yuna is the only one of my bulldogs who I never really worried about she just isn't a big chewer or toy girl. So she was the last one I ever expected to have an obstruction.

    I don't want to scare you, but my point is clear X-rays mean nothing. Cloth and stuffing, ropes and socks, these items do not show up in X-rays and even if the X-ray pattern looks normal it can very well not be.

    Bullmama, good advice. You never know what these babies get into; even when we do everything we can to prevent it.


    Leo, get better, so Mommy feels better.

    When Fred was just 5 months old he developed pancreatitis and I had to rush him to the vet where he had to stay overnight and i didn't sleep much. I was worried sick. I really hope Leo gets better. I feel your pain and worry.
