Everyday Hog, Lulu, and I walk over to Wickham Park where I work at the dog park. We walk on the sidewalk for 5 minutes probably and then we are at the park. All in all we do like 2 miles a day sometimes twice a day. Wonder why Lulu is still so fat? haha. Plus they go into the dog park for an hour everytime so they are gettig major exercise.

Anyways to get to the point we were walking and Hog was pulling like he needed to go on the grass. I thought he had to poop or pee really bad or something. He started doing the waddle thing they do when they are about to throw up. He throws up a bunch of white foamy and stuff and while he is throwing up he is staggering really bad and falling over.

When he was done throwing up he completely fell over. It was horrible. I have those stupid retractable leashes and Lulu was trying to attack him while this was happening. I was trying to make sure the leashes were locked down so they didnt run in the road and i was trying to pull Lulu off Hog and see if he is ok all in one.

It was so scary but he got up and was fine.A minute later he got a stick and was toturing Lulu with it...

This happened once before and I posted about it here when it did happen. It was when he was a little baby he threw up white foamy stuff and then collapsed. He is going to the vet tommorow anyways because of this thing on his neck

I hope whatever that is it doesn't cost a lot to fix. I dont know though because you can grab it and feel the underneath part and it is hard as a rock... really odd.. So I will ask the vet about him passing out tommorow. So scary though!

Hog always lays on Lulu's bed :)

I am feeling: stressedstressed

When Corny eats too fast, he will puke up white foam. He is usually fine afterwards!

but does he faint too?

My friends pug, Tank, does something similiar (foams/throws-up & faints) when he has seizures. He doesn't have them requently, but Advantix K-9 (?) seemed to be of been a major trigger. Hope Hog gets some extra good care at the vet :D

Re: Similar
wow Hog is on advantix and when i posted about this when it happened to him as a baby people here said he had a seizure. so that is probably what happened again... odd. He has been on advantix now forever though.

wow that is so gross about the larva! yeah i didnt rush him to the vet because this happened once before and also because he got back up and started playing right away.

I hope he's okay!! I have no idea about the foamy vomit, or the passing out. But his neck could be from the collar (which was mentioned) or if Lulu bit him. Petey had an almost identical mark on his neck from where our other pooch bit him. It got hard like a rock as it was healing. He was checked out by our vet and confirmed it was just a bite (we also saw Lucy bite him, but we wanted to make sure that's all it was and just not something we missed seeing beforehand, I worry a little... lol). So hopefully that's all it is!!!

Good luck at the vet's tomorrow!

Deez barfs every time we go somewhere different. He kinda foams at the mouth and drools a lot and hacks and barfs. He doesn't faint, but he does act like he is feeling bad. I think he is just overwhelmed by all the other doggy smells and it makes him nutty.

That thing on Hog looks kinda like the thing Deez had and he had to have it removed surgically. I just called the vet to find out what is was called and it could be a histiocytoma. It wasn't serious, but they had to make a long oval insision and remove it. It looked a lot worse than that, as Deez was outside playing and hit it and it bled a lot, it just kinda ruptured. Anyway, if that is what it is, its not too bad, just sucks that Hog has an owie. I hope he gets to feeling better soon.

Tell him I love him and kiss his little white head for me!

(PS IF Hog likes Lu's bed that much, maybe he would like to be a princess for Halloween!! Teehee!)
Genevieve: blue eyesalwaysgenevieve on October 31st, 2005 04:50 pm (UTC)
lol. how much did it cost? deez's surgery?

me too!

Poor Hog, sounds exactly like a seizure, you're right. Foaming at the mouth/vomiting foam and brief unconsciousness are definitely two signs of a seizure. Normally they don't recommend the dog go on anti-seizure meds until they have two or more seizures within an eight-week period (luckily cuz I think they're pretty expensive), so if it's just an occasional thing it's probably no big deal, although definitely scary!! I'm sure Lulu had no idea what was happening to her big brother.
Good luck with the lump on his neck, that I have no idea about.
P.S. Love the pink bed :D
Genevieve: merepeople_potterpuffsalwaysgenevieve on October 31st, 2005 04:51 pm (UTC)
yeah i think you are right.. the first time he had one he was only like 2-3 months old.. this is the second and i hope there are nooooooo more!!!!!!! they are so freaking scary!!!
LaDiablaladiabla on October 31st, 2005 03:27 pm (UTC)
could it be a sebaceous cyst? maybe his collar rubs it. I have had them explode on me in the past, they are VERY hard but when they do burst its like toothpaste coming out. Bear had four large fatty tumors removed this summer BUT he only did because one was growing so fast it had to come out so they took the others as well. Normally they leave them since they do no harm. I hope your baby is ok!
Genevieve: mariyln hairalwaysgenevieve on October 31st, 2005 04:53 pm (UTC)
yeah it reminds me of like a boil or something that needs to pop. i want to squeeze it so bad but i know i cant. so do they go away? or do you wait for them to pop and then they go away? what are the caused by?
