Things That Go "BLAAAA" In The Night

Monday night was an adventure in our house. I had not been feeling well Monday, so I took some medication to help me sleep. The caused me to miss the first part of the Man and Hailey adventure. 

Around 11:30pm Hailey threw up. Now since I have had dogs for more than a decade, I know that sometimes dogs throw up. The problem was that our Hailey kept throwing up. She threw up for about 45 minutes. When I got up (toward the end of the 45 minutes) she was clearly in distress. When the Man had taken her outside she had eaten grass (which is common) and in the house she was desperate to eat hair and fluff from the floor and would immediately puke it back up. (Unfortunately in our house there is always a lot of hair and fluff on the floor!) We made the decision to take her to the vet, even though the emergency vet is about an hour away. We knew our regular vet would not be the vet on call, but we also knew she would see an excellent vet (and if need be, we could talk to our vet in the morning). 

The Man loaded her into the car and off they went. Interestingly as soon as we took her to the car, she stopped puking. 

Of course now I am awake so Phod and I snuggled in bed awaiting news. We didn't have to wait too long because the clinic was not very busy (fortunately, sometimes emerg can be crazy busy). The vet  thought Hailey was one of the most gorgeous dogs she had ever seen and added that to her file! She did an exam, ordered X-rays, and in the end found nothing. Her guess is she ate something that upset her stomach and she had expelled it all. She gave her a shot of anti-nausea meds and about 40 minutes after arriving at the clinic they were on their way home.  

Once we heard this (about 2 am) , Phod and I went to sleep. I knew I couldn't take Tuesday off, so I squeezed a few hours in. On Tuesday, other than being a bit tired Hailey seemed fine and she has been fine the rest of the week.

We are happy that in the end we just lost some sleep and spent some money and that our girl was fine.


  1. Great news and so glad she is home and well. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Good news that Hailey is okay. You did the right thing getting her checked out though, as peeps don't understand what a pup is trying to say when they have the sickies its always best to have a check up, especially if it carries on.

  11. We're so happy for a good outcome at the emergency vets!! How scary that must have been for her to throw up for so long!

  12. there is no telling what upsets a dogs tummy - just seems to happen occasionally

  13. What a relief! I don't do well with having my sleep disrupted, so I probably would have been up the rest of the night, even after knowing everything was OK! We often have middle of the night throwing up, but never any that has gone on that long, so we would have gone to the vet as well.

  14. Glad every buddy is feeling better!

  15. So happy the adventure ended happily...except for the $ and sleep.

    What a lovely vet!

  16. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Cousin Lee, that happens to me sometimes too. I am glad you are feeling better!

  17. Well thank heavens Hailey's "hork-a-thon" was nothing serious. We're happy she's OK!!

    Hugs, sammy

  18. Glad to hear she is fine now!

  19. We are so glad she is okay.
