Awful 24 hours! Anya threw up her dinner last night in the only carpeted room in the house. I cleaned it, and boiled some rice, knowing I would need it today.
Then about 8:30 or 9:00 last night, Jabaar started throwing up a clear, mucousy fluid, and he kept on and on and on. I used half a roll of paper towels and followed him around with a mop. I finally confined him to the entry hall with a bunch of old towels as bedding and collapsed a little after 1 AM. This morning, I found Jabaar asleep. He had made a little nest out of the towels, but they were all soiled with vomit. I woke him up and sent him outside with the rest of the pack to potty. He sat down on the back step and stayed there. I didn't feed Jabaar anything for breakfast, but Anya had some boiled rice and cooked hamburger, and she kept it down.
Anya has a follow-up appointment at the vet tomorrow at 10, and I thought I would just take Jabaar along, too, if he wasn't better.
I had a class at the church at 10 AM. Came home a little past noon and found Jabaar had vomited three more times while I was gone. Now worried about possible dehydration during the next 24 hours, I called my vet's office and begged them to give Jabaar an anti-nausea shot. Thankfully, they told me to bring him in right away, gave him the shot, and sent me home with four pills. No vomit since then, but Jabaar is sleeping a lot. Poor old guy is exhausted.
