    Have you had the vet do x-rays because if there is a chance he has swallowed glass then it could be doing terrible damage inside, I would be going straight back to the vet.

    Default Poor dog!

    I was thinking the same as Unicorn in that he could have swallowed something like a chicken bone but it does sound like he may have swallowed glass!!


    Is he able to eat at all? Does he have any other symptoms?

    Really hope you find out what is causing this and get him well soon.

    That is good news!

    Perhaps he burst a blood vessel through wretching so let's hope he is over the worst and makes a full and speedy recovery.

    It is a good sign that he is eating and small amounts will be best anyway.

    Glad your dog's getting better .I do hope the glass attached itself to the sweetie .
    Good idea just to let them out the back just in case.

    So glad that he is on the mend and that you found out the cause.
    Such a shame that idiots would leave a sweetie with glass lying around!

    My dog Benjy is a bit of a scrounger when he goes out for a walk so have to be very careful in case he picks up something he shouldn't!
