Poorly Boy!

So sorry to hear about your boy JRT, its never nice when our pets are not well. I am sure he is now being well looked after in the Veterinary Hospital. I wish you and your little Jack lots of good wishes and that he has a good recovery. Please let us know how he gets on.

So sorry to hear about your Jack. HGE or Hemorrhagic GastroEnteritis is not fatal if treated aggressively. If it is HGE it sounds like your dog will probably get the treatment he needs in the hospital. Be sure to talk to your vet about reintroducing food slowly back to the diet. Because certain foods, parasites, stress can cause HGE, it is important to talk to your vet about what he thinks might have triggered it as well as what to now feed your Jack. Also, it is not uncommon for reocurrance so make sure you continue to watch for signs.

Hope everything is ok, please let us know how he is doing!
