An Update on my sickies

Thanks to everyone's well wishes on me getting better. I'm very sorry I haven't been able to keep up with everyone's blogs and various goings-on. I'm just too sick and since I haven't slept, I'm too tired. I went back to the vet yesterday and he said we're going to have to do a lot more tests on me to find out what's wrong with me. I had to have blood taken (and no treat after!) and mom brought in a syringe (don't ask) full of liquid poops.
So they had to run this super special test to see what's going on, but the blood work came back kinda funny...I've got elevated liver enzymes. We're still waiting to hear back about my poops (but that will take days!) Until then it's chicken, and not much of it, for me. See my food container in the background? It's full and I'm hungry...why can't it just open up and feed me? Do you see how small my waist has gotten? Has anyone ever heard of an anorexic pug? This is unacceptable!
So really the doctor doesn't know what's wrong with me yet, I'm like 65% back to normal, but that liver thing has mom and dad worried. I'll keep you posted and sorry I'm not my usual obnoxious self. I love you guys!!


  1. Feels better soon and we will keeps your in are pawyers.

  2. OMG, Bellatrix!! We're extremely concerned about you in the House of Flora the Pug and Butters the Lab. :(
    Do they have any thought that it could be the parasite Giardia?? Both dogs in this house have had it, and it can make bloodwork, stools, etc. all wacky...
    Oh, dear, please keep us posted, and we hope you feel better ASAP!
    Tiffany, mom to Flora and Butters

  3. we hope you feel better soon Bells. Foo once had weird liver test results, but she's still kicking. When Mom's cats had Giardia, it was weeks of water poops and boiled chicken. BTW, cats HATE baths!!!!

    We send you the POWER of the PAW

  4. Belly we needs you to get better. You always have the funniest post and great adventure. We hope that you feel 85% better soon and then 110% after that!

    Many hugs,

  5. Little Belly!! It's Auntie Katy!! Now can I talk to your Mommy please!!

    Hello Chris!! I am so very sorry for Bellatrix and I wanted to ask you if her food behind her was a new package??
    Did you buy that recently??

    Once I bought the same brand of food three years ago for my guys and a few days later they were vomiting and had soft poops. I called the vet and he said it must be their new bag of food because I had given them nothing else that week.
    It's just a thought. Especially with all the food recalls lately.
    She does look really tiny.
    Here is another thought.
    You said you got a promotion. Are you gone more?? Did the dynamic change in the hubby watching Bella more??
    I was gone way more this past winter than normal and it freaked Josie out to the point where she stopped eating.
    But, again.. I'm just rambling and racking my brain to try to think what is wrong.
    I feel so horrible to hear she has had diarrhea for this long...
    Our thought and prayers are with you and your sweet Bellatrix. If you need anything please let us know!!

    Much Love,

  6. Oh Bellatrix,
    It is just breaking my heart to see you so sad. I'm sure your blood work is wacky due to all that pooping and stuff. As soon as they figure out(and it better be soon) what is wrong you will be back to your normal puggy self. We love you too and hope you feel better very soon!

  10. Hi Bellatrix, I'm here after reading about your sickies on the Elgin Pugs blog. SO sorry you're not feeling well. Sending my thoughts and prayers to you!


  11. Hi Bellatrix,

    Just like Zona I heards you was sick from IzZY. I hopes you is feeling betters soon. Paws crossed and puppy prayers are heading your way.

    WOofs and Licks,
    Maggie MAe

  12. Oh Bellatrix,
    We are thinking good thoughts for you. Get well soon so we can meet up for a playdate.
    Luvs ya

  13. Hi Bellatrix
    I am a friend of Izzy over at the Elgin Pugs, and heard you had the sickies.
    I saw your happy face on your bloggie, now i see a sad face.
    That makes me sooo sads, because I know how miseralbles it is to be sick.
    I am crossing my paws for you to get well soon and I send the power of the paws to help you

  14. OH no Bella-T,

    Tell your people it doesn't matter how sick you are, if you're still breathing a full/unopened food bin is NOT a recipe for happiness. At least if you're a pug.

    I guess that liver thing must be kinda freaking your people out. It kinda freaked out mine. Are they testing your poop-soup for Giardia? My human said that could explain some stuff. But I'm sure your vet knows more than my human. Duh.

    ANyway - I hope you feel 100% better soon.

  15. Hi Bellatrix! I'm so sad that you still have the sickies! I had elevated liver enzymes but my were caused by some special medication I was on. I stopped taking it and then everything went back to normal.

    Your skinny waist looks just like mine. We both look like we're starving and we are! At least you get to eat chicken because I just get regular pug food.

    I'm keeping my paws crossing that your poop comes back okay and that they figure out what's wrong with you.

    Stubby xoxo

  16. Hellos there Bellatrix, them crazy Elgin Pugs sends me overs cuz they says you been I runs overs to whats going on.
    You IS a skinny pug. I sure hoped they finds out whats bothering you tummy.
    I comes back laters to checks on ya but in da meantime I would prolly sees if you can opens dat container of food. Oh, nevers mind cuz I just read Katie's comment......scratch waht I said.


  17. Sweet Bellatrix we hope you get better soon!!! We are thinking of you and wishing that you start to feel much better soon!!!!!!! Sending lots of love and many hugs to you!!! ~Lauren and the kitty gang~

  18. Many prayers going up for you Bells. We agree that that Giardia sounds like the culprit. Seems like this all started with the blueberry allergy..

    A pug is simply lost without a couple of extra skin rolls to go around.
