Dealing with a sick dog

So this weekend was a crazy emotional roller coaster. Saturday was terrible weather here in Turin. Let the show begin, we were supposed to run 2 rounds with each dog and only did one. We were all wet by this time and called it a day. Went home and got warm and comfortable, not a bad day, the results of the competition; Altair 4th with a bar down. And Ksora was a rocket and missed her poles. I hurt my back and was freezing. Sunday morning, ready to rock the show today. Until, Altair started vomiting all his food up. Oh god!!! This is it, sick and dying dog, no show, and 80€ down the drain, the worst is the health of my dog, I couldn’t care less for the rest. 

So we walk and wait to see how he looks, by lunch we decided to go do the show and if he doesn’t get better then have a vet look at him. He vomited right before his class but thankfully vet was on scene and told us exactly what the problem is and that there is no need to worry.

If your dog is vomiting and you are worried go to a vet, if you feel it isn’t a danger then this is what we were told to do, no food and water for 24hrs, after that give them a anti nausea dose(for dogs) and then carry on as usual, let’s hope this works. 

So we ran had fun and it ended in a great result, Altair unfortunately had another bar down and got disqualified in agility but ran amazingly. Ksora rocked it and took 2nd place in agility, shocking the crowd.
