This is lymphangiectasia. I came home today to find that Louie had puked up his pill in one corner of his crate, and there was frothy puke in each of the other three corners, and all over his little bed.

Any little change to his diet can trigger this disease. I gave him an anti-nausea pill and a small dinner a little while later; if he holds that down I will give him a larger amount a little later on.

Often this is enough to help him through a transitional phase with his food. I hope it will be this time. The diarrhea, for the moment, seems to have subsided, so that's a good sign.


  1. Aw, poor Louie! I hope he's feeling better today.

  2. Thanks, Lis. He seems a little better today. Hopefully he's just adjusting and will be all right soon.

  3. Just catching up, Laura. Pour Louie is having such a tough time and I know it's hard on you too. I hope today is a better day.

  4. Thank you. He seems better today :)
