My poor little buddy
She stopped eating, threw up constantly, lost 3lbs or more.
The first vet did blood work and all signs pointed to gastritis. We put her on a steroid. I keep asking the vet questions about her health, she was slow at getting better, the vet didn't want to be bothered to really help her health and told me I should find another vet.
I then brought her to an emergency clinic, they wanted a thousand dollars up front for the ultrasound, I felt strange about the guy and told him I would think about it.
I ended up going to an older vet, we did a fecal sample that came back fine, we cleaned her teeth, we tried a few things, she has recovered almost completely.
For months now she still licks her lips a lot and mornings and evenings she appears nauseous, maybe every other month she actually vomits. I feed her a high quality canned dog food, a teaspoon an hour, throughout the day until she's had the recommended amount to eat, around 1- 1 1/2 cups.
Every vet I've been to seems to just shrug, they can send me to the USA for specialist tests but I don't even have a passport.
Everything I read online is always missing a symptom or has a symptom listed that she doesn't have, her blood and fecal samples came back fine.
Before you say "go see a vet", please remember I have seen 3 so far, I'm specifically looking for your input here.
Can anyone speculate on what might be causing this? She's fine most of the time, just licks her lips a lot, has bad breath around those times, some signs of nausea in the morning and evening, her blood and fecal samples were good.
