My lab had a barium yesterday after committing all weekend. It showed that her intestines were all on one side. After the barium her intestines returned to normal. She is home and on medicine. She is still lethargic. She has not vommitted as yet. She had not had much food only small portions at a time. Our vet thought at first that she would be in surgery. He wanted to do the barium first. She seems to be getting better and after the barium her intestines were back where they should be. He is keeping her x-rays as he has never seen this before.

Okay - so the xray showed nothing. She was very dehydrated due to the not drinking and the vomiting. They don't know why she's vomiting so much. I pray I get to bring her home tomorrow....

My english bully started making sounds like a frog ribitting (spelling?) and vomiting every time she got up. It started on Tuesday and today is Thursday. She couldn't keep down fluids or food and she's at the vet right now getting the barium test. I'm sitting at home, waiting for a phone call and flipping out. She's only 3 years old. I'll post whatever I hear. Good luck to all of those with the same issues I'm facing!

Joanne, of San
Mateo,

Sounds like pyloric stenosis. Has your vet ever questioned that? A barium swallow would have to be performed with the dog hopefully in an upright or semi upright position to watch the barium as it passes through the pylorus ( from the stomach into the small bowel). The pylorus may be creating a tightened point where food will not pass through. Infants usually exhibit this persistent projectile vomiting when this is the case. Or maybe just allergies.


Hope you find out whats wrong. Best reguards

Jasper my 4 yr old Parson Terrier in getting the barium test today. His problem started a year and nine months ago. He started vomiting most times projectile vomiting with no diarrhea. A shot of a medicine starting with "C" and went home taking pepcid with his meals for one week. His problems ended and all was good. Now a year and nine months later, tons of x-rays tons of blood test and switched vets. I'm at such a loss for helping him. He has been vomiting mostly projectile with hardly pooping, now for three weeks and is getting the barium test today. If anyone knows what else is a possibility that could be his problem please let me know. Thanks for reading this!!

My little yorkie has been doin this same thing since about a week after we got him. We did the barium study, and my vet says that it came back fine. How effective are bariums b/c my baby boy has been vomiting consistently for months now? We did the xrays also, and my vet says next step is endoscope, but i dont have money for that. Please help. can it still be blockage?

This article was very interesting, we too are experiencing similar problem with our pet. We have opted to do the Barium Study so that we can finally determine what is causing the illness.
