My vet always advises to feed my dog white rice and boiled chicken when she has tummy problems. Seems to help and she keeps it down better than dog food.

Hope your baby feels better soon.

The rice and chicken or burger is a really good idea. You need to watch him though, (I know you are!) he may have eaten something that is causing a blockage. If he can't hold his food and starts to get dehydrated he needs a vet and probably an x-ray. You can tell if he is getting dehydrated by lifting the scruff of his neck and seeing how fast it snaps back. The slower the snap the more he is dehydrated. Check his gum color also. Pale is not good. Anything poisonous around? Antifreeze? Is he wobbley? It may just be an upset tummy and nothing to stress about but I would be concerned if it keeps up. Good Luck.

Hope Charlie's feeling better by now...as long as he's acting semi-normal (after all these years you'd think I'd be able to define this better) he should be okay.

MajorBaby happened to get her hands on some "spoiled" yogurt (according to MajorMom and some clumps of mold found inside the yogurt container the baby had plowed through) and you would have thought the end of the world had come. MajorMom did the "momly" thing and called our "Ask a Nurse" and the "Poison Control Center" to see what she should do.

My solution...was to watch her to see if she reacted badly to it. You know...like Charlie, losing it from both ends. Never happened. Nor did she lose her toddler sense of herself...as sweet and as ornery as ever as the mood suited her.

I have to laugh about what your hubby said to you though...aren't we males just a bucket of chuckles sometimes?

See you on the high ground.
