I feel like a new Maltese mommy with Dewey!! Even though I've had several malts an Yorkies, besides having illnesses at old age, I've never encountered some of the issues that I've had with Dewey. I did have a malt that tore his ACL. And his surgery and recovery went well! I am constantly googling things about him or asking questions. When I get him finally raised, then I'll probably feel like an experienced Maltese Mom. Thank everyone here for their input and knowledge. It is greatly appreciated!!

There are many reasons for blood in the stool & I would not think most of them from HGE. JMHO
Great point, Sandi!

Lady had HGE three times in four months. It is NOT a little blood in the stool. It is bright red profuse bleeding from the rectum. I wrapped Lady in a towel to rush her to the vet and my walkway still looked like a crime scene!

HGE comes on suddenly and requires immediate veterinary intervention as it can be deadly quickly.

The vet didn't say HGE to me she said colitis. Dewey had a muscy stool with bright red in it. Still scary to me

lol...Deborah, it's been my experience that I can help others determine if this is something serious or can wait with ease and know what to do without even thinking about it. But let it be happening to one of MY babies and I'm a scared, panicking, not knowing what to do big ol' mess! I have a feeling you and I are not alone.

Deb-I am so glad its something pretty simple. Nothing is ever simple when it is happening to our babies. hope he feels better soon.

When Sammie had leg surgery the ortho surgeon told me not to try and syringe/induce water. Rather offer cool (fresh) chicken broth instead. if he refuses it she will treat his tummy ache and hydrate him with injection. She said water (as with humans) will increase nausea and vomiting. He finally drank broth and never had bad diareah thankfully.
