What are your thoughts on this. The last time I took Koji to daycare (I call it summer camp since it’s in the woods ), he vomited 5 times. Twice in the car and within 10 mins. He threw up the forest. Well, that’s what I’m calling it. It looks to be pine needles, see link below. https://www.dropbox.com/s/imjv1lajxknrgnn/2014-07-03%2017.35.00.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/gm7ofglse5v7ukx/2014-07-03%2017.35.36.jpg The owner said that he likes to dig in the dirt and obviously he eats everything on the ground. We know he does this anyways, so it’s nothing new. She also said with the new Spring grass, the dogs like to eat stuff. She told me it’s nothing to be concerned about. My concern isn’t only, “is it bad for him”, it’s more of how he was acting. I have seen my dog completely worn out mentally and physically. I have seen my dog recovering from anesthesia. I have never seen him look so “lethargic” ever. I put the word in quotes, because I’m not sure what to call it. Usually, when he vomits, he perks up. After vomiting 5x within an hour or so, he looked even worse for wear. When I’d take him out to potty, he was walking as slow as Miko used to walk, y’know, my 15yo old slow dog. He also walked with his head kind of down. He wasn’t interested in anything (that could be tired, but even when super tired, he will look at other dogs). I have never seen him like that and THAT is what worries me. The owner stated that going to her daycare is like running a marathon when you typically run 2 miles. I get that, I do, especially since we don’t do agility anymore, but seriously, I have never seen him look like that. Some people asked me if my dog was stoned because even they said he looks beyond tired, maybe sick. They joked that maybe he got some bad ‘shrooms. For me, when my dog looks dead in the eyes, that worries me. I’ve seen him tired. That was way beyond mentally and physically tired. And we all know Shelties rarely show they’re sick. Should I be concerned? Should I take him to daycare anymore? The owner says yes. And I’m hoping that’s not a money driven answer. I’m concerned and THAT concerns me because Koji has eaten tons of things and I rarely am THIS concerned. My concern is at the level of, oh he ate a sock and it’s been 3 days and hasn’t passed and now he’s not pooping. I rarely get to that point with Koji. Here’s a photo of him. Yes, he’s tired, you can tell that. But to me, he looks more than just tired. https://www.dropbox.com/s/x9cibx6d5z0xd5g/2014-07-03%2017.48.05.jpg Thoughts? I know he loves it. I know him eating that stuff isn’t bad. I know him vomiting isn’t bad. But that dead look in his eyes, THAT is what worries me the most. Should I be concerned about what he's eating, could it be causing more issues than just "can't digest, must vomit"?
