Poor thing! Managed to get a bone stuck in his esophogus and tore it. Now when he breathes, he pumps air into his body. Really feels weird when you touch him, like nothing there! Air is in the skin tissues. He's doing better today, ate some canned food and lost some of the air.

That would have freaked me out! So, it will heal on its own? What kind of bone was it, not a chicken bone I hope, y'all know your not supposed to give chicken bones to dogs, riiiiight? ;)

Glad he is getting better. :)

Pretty much what I said. He is doing better today, managed to eat a bit of canned food, and started sniffing after Sasha-Bean again! Vet did say he hadn't encountered this yet. Son Jimi took him down to the Vet for the second time on Fri. and they stuck pins all over him to let some of the air out. Has made an improvement! Poor thing , the jewells look like softballs! OUCH!

You know it seems like most everything I have happened to my critters the vet has never seen or dealt with the situation before...That is why I mainly ask questions
Our little calf was born perfect and huge but bugged eyed to our notion...Lot of money tied up in her so like the greenhorns we are we called the vet and he made the "farm call" we was glad to get him least he came and most won't even bother...He looked at her eyes and examined them with reflectors...recommended giving her Vit.A shots...which we did...He was a good vet...But I wrote and ask if anyone else had calfs who looked bugged eyed...and if they had bad vision from it...The answer was...The head will catch up with their eyes...just give her time...Guess what...They did and she is perfect now...Hope your dog gets okay...KAtG

Jimi said that when he took Chilli to the vet on Wed. Two people ahead of him told him he'd better go ahead of them! He will be OK. We just have the troublem of keeping him from getting to frisky and pumping more air into his body! Try to keep a hyper dog calm! Yeah-Right!
