    Default Vomiting blood

    :cry: Snuggles had an episode Sat. where he vomited a moderate amt. of bright red blood. A trip to the ER and more vomiting of blood, and he was diagnosed with "Infectious Hemataemesis????(vomiting blood) Gastroenteritis. I was told the bleeding was from either a virus or bacteria in the stomach, that had irritated the stomach so bad that it bled. I think that definition was given, because they could not find any other diagnosis.
    All in all, it was and still is rather scarey. Although Snuggles seems to be better now, I am soooo worried. Has anyone else had any problems such as this? :cry:

    So sorry to hear about Snuggles - this is a very scary condition, requiring rapid treatment.

    I do know of a tiny 3lb Yorkie who had this but came through ok- so keep positive.

    There is some information about it on the above website, I guess this is what your vet is referring to.

    Hope that Snuggles will soon be feeling much better - sending healing thoguhts and prayers for you both.
