We have an almost eight year old Irish Wolfhound. About 6 months ago we spread wood chips around in our backyard. In hindsight that is when he started throwing up a few times a day. We took him to the vet and $600. later, we were told he "had gas." We removed the wood chips about six weeks ago, but he is still throwing up. As a result he is spending a lot more time outside and nights in the garage on a dog bed. He really likes to be near us and this is hard. We continue to take him for walks and give him as much attention as we can. Now we have an additional problem. He is pooping in the house. We let him inside and he almost immediately pooped on the floor. Im not sure what to do to reverse this downhill slide of him spending his days outside. I want him inside, but I don't want my house destroyed.View Thread
