Sinbad was not eating much when we left home. I stopped off at our daughter's on the way Saturday and spent the evening there. We left Sunday at noon travelling north towards our destinations. I elected to stop early at the first camp we came to which was near Shasta Lake. That evening since he still hadn't eaten I decided to abort the trip and return home on Monday. But come Monday morning he ate a healthy breakfast of both dry and wet food, so what to do?
I continued on our way but turned south towards camps along Hat Creek north of Mt. Lassen Nat. Park. I just felt better going closer than further away from home. The plan was to hang around this area for a few days and see how he did. It was now Monday, our Labor Day holiday and everyone had cleared out for home. We had the small campground all to ourselves.
Sinbad was alert and active wanting to go for walks. At 3pm he got sick and threw up. He continued to throw up every hour but was fine in between. I decided the next day we would go home, but at the 8 pm that evening the vomit was pinkish - blood? I freaked, threw everything together and drove on through the night arriving at home at 1:30 am. At home was his last throw up.
The next day he was fine and we went to the vet. He got a shot to settle his stomach and was good all day eating normally. This morning he is once again nauseous and thrown up twice. Think how it is when you have the bug and get nauseous and vomit every hour with nothing in your stomach. You feel fine afterwards then it slowly returns an hour later. This is what is he going through. The vet is to call today and check in. I may call instead.
I am just so very glad I had already decided to not take our planned long trip back to the New England area for the fall colors. To be a couple thousand miles away from home....
