Cherno has always been a good eater. So it was a surprise to me , when he turned his nose up at his breakfast. ( I feed him on the morning and allow him to sleep all he wants through the day. This ensures he is alert and hungry throughout the night, )
This was Saturday morning, Sunday he became lethargic and struggled to rise from a prone position. Bank holiday Monday he was just the same. He had a slight temperature and was drinking profusely. I began to suspect an infection. Tuesday morning, I checked what he had passed during the night. His motion was ” Black “.
I called the Vet immediately and made an appointment for 12-o-clock ! Cherno was weighed and found to be 60 kilo’s. Far too heavy. The Vet suggested that I reduce his food intake by half and bring his weight down by 15k. The Vet then told me he thought an infection had caused the black stool.A couple of injections and a coarse of antibiotics and he should be ok, he said. A repeat appointment was made for 10 days time. About half an hour after arriving home, Cherno spontaneously spilled the contents of his stomach over the carpet, twice !!! Poor fellow just could not help it. Not a nice sight nor pleasant to clean up. “DOGS ” NOTHING BUT TROUBLE, BUT DO I LOVE THEM… YOU CAN BET YOUR BUTT I DO.
So here I sit watching Cherno’s every move with everything crossed, hoping he makes some sign of recovery soon.
This is how Cherno looks when he is not poorly !!!
