Spent last Monday - Friday at the Portofino. We always stay in a pet friendly room as we bring our two dogs. Tuesday am both dogs started getting ill and could not keep food down. Progressively got worse throughout the week including diarrhea. We took both dogs to vet when we got home on Friday (we are only 2 hours away via car) and spent $900 on all kinds of tests. Vet could not find anything (rushed blood work as well and everything looked normal). Saturday our larger dog seemed worse so we rushed him back to vet. $700 later still no root cause. Both dogs are still not back to normal but starting to be able to keep food down. My question is if anyone else has had issues with their dogs getting sick after staying in a pet friendly room. We have stayed at the Portofino many times over the last 5 years always taking our two dogs and have not had an issue. My spouse is thinking dogs possibly caught a virus from last dogs that had stayed in the room. I'm not so sure but wanted to ask group. Thanks!
