Sick baby

I am very sad tonight. I didn't realize how attached I am to my little Jackson.

This is gross...

He started vomiting on Saturday for about 3 hours and then had diarrhea on Sunday a few times. I woke up this morning to him vomiting again. Tonight he had more diarrhea and started vomiting again. He wouldn't eat much and wouldn't take much water and slept almost the entire day today.

We took him to the vet tonight and they said it was a viral infection and kept him for at least tonight. They have to get IV fluids in him to stop the vomiting and then treat the diarrhea.

His little face has been so sad and his little ears haven't been standing up as much as usual. I felt so bad for him. I hated leaving him at the vet, but they can help him better and probably faster.

So, lesson here:
If your dog starts vomiting or has diarrhea and it doesn't go away in a day, TAKE THEM TO THE VET!!!

The vet told us that there is a viral infection going around... watch out for it... it is so sad.
