Will a dog with bloat poop at the vet?

My labrador started having some gastrointestinal problems. The last 2 days, it has had diarrhea, and is having trouble keeping liquids down. It also has some gas that has been a little hard to see, but it has been harder to deal with.

I took him to the vet on Saturday, and he is running a fever. He also has a rash behind his shoulder blades.

I took him back today and he was still not feeling good. He has a little bit of gas and some gas that is hard to see, but you can see it. He was drinking water with some lemon juice in it, but it wasn't helping. The vet said he doesn't think it was anything too serious, but wants to do some blood tests to make sure. I have to get blood work done, and a fecal analysis as well.

I just don't know what to do, but I can't stand the thought of having to do the blood work, or not knowing what's going on. I think that my vet has some idea of what it could be, but I don't know.

The vet has told me that there's no way to know for sure until he gets the blood tests and fecal analysis done, but that the symptoms I'm describing would be consistent with bloat.

Has anybody else had experience with bloat?

I don't want to have to take my dog to the vet unless I really have to.

If you go to your vet and he/she suggests a blood test for a disease that you feel is not right and that you don't think your dog should have, then I would get another vet.

And the sooner you do the blood work, the better.

Just for the record, I don't believe in a vet who doesn't look at the whole picture, but I also don't think any of us have that level of knowledge and experience to diagnose a problem properly. The average vet can give a decent diagnosis and I think he/she does a pretty good job for the most part, but it's not like there is a list of things to check for or a series of procedures to follow. You have to ask a lot of questions, observe closely, and sometimes that means just waiting to see if things improve or get worse. We don't know why a dog has a particular problem but sometimes it seems like a perfect storm, a combination of factors that might be playing out at the same time. I think that's part of the difficulty in dealing with it.

My dogs have bloat. But with both, the problem was that they would suddenly start getting violently sick. In one case, the diarrhea became so bad that the dog wouldn't go to the bathroom anymore. He also began peeing on himself. In the other case, the diarrhea was so bad that it would be up to my feet. Both cases were very scary, but the vet eventually figured out the problem and the dogs got better.

The other time I saw bloat in my own dog, we were in a big hurry to get the dog to the vet and I was trying to take her through the house to my car. I just got her out of the house in time, but it was a scary experience.

I really hope that you do get good news about your dog. If not, the least expensive thing you could do is get another vet. That's the one thing you can do, but it is going to be a hard thing to do.

Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to find a vet that I think will be a good fit for the situation. The one I had was not really familiar with bloat. That's why I was wondering if anyone had a story where they went to a vet and had a dog with bloat and the vet did the right things and the dog recovered and why he was able to do so. I guess that's what makes me worry about having to get the blood test done. I think that if I'm just having to go to the vet for the blood test, then it might be a lot of worry about nothing.

That's a really scary situation that I'm glad that you are able to get your dog to the vet and hopefully your situation will turn out to be one that the vet has seen before and that you can put your mind at ease. I've heard that most vet clinics are really busy these days with the flu going around, so if you can get there sooner rather than later, I would do it.

The vet I went to did some blood tests and said he couldn't find anything out of the ordinary. He also said the symptoms sounded pretty consistent with bloat.

There is a chance that I might have to take the dog to the emergency vet, but I'm hoping that the blood test will show something that the emergency vet can treat.

If the emergency vet can't treat it and he/she tries to have the dog put down, then at least I'll know that it was something really serious and that it would have been better to get the dog to the emergency vet in the first place.

I think you are on the right track. If you think there is a serious problem with your dog and your vet doesn't agree, go to a vet who has experience with such a problem. I have heard horror stories about the emergency vets but the situation is different in an emergency. I think your vet is probably right and if there is an emergency, there is no
