Hi , I have an Bernese mountain dog and he has been throwing up all day , not eating or drinking and he hardly wants to move plus he is lying in the furthest corner in the backyard and won't come to us when we call him , he just lays there !! I don't know what to do :( should I take him to a vet ??

Dr. Christian K. :

Hello. This is Dr.Christian.

Dr. Christian K. :

Has he had any diarrhea? Are his gums a normal pink color?

Dr. Christian K. :

Has he had all of his vaccines?

Customer:

no diarrhea and vaccines is up to date

Customer:

my husband is checking his gum

Dr. Christian K. :

Okay. Good.

Dr. Christian K. :

I'll wait.

Customer:

gum is pink but his mouth is very muxuse

Customer:

ups working on the word saliva

Dr. Christian K. :

It sounds like he is getting dehydrated plus the vomiting is causing that. I definitely think it's best to have him seen by a vet rather than waiting any longer. At this age I worry about something he may have eaten to severely upset his stomach or even cause a blockage. Waiting could be dangerous in those cases and he will only get more dehyrated.

Customer:

my husband checked and saw that his penis has , what looks to be pussy

Customer:

he is an outdoor dog and we live in the bush

Dr. Christian K. :

It's fairly normal for a young male dog to have a yellowish discharge. That's probably not related to this situation.

Customer:

a few days ago he did bring a rotting deerhead home

Dr. Christian K. :

That could definitely do it.

Customer:

ok we will bring him to a vet right now !!

Customer:

thank you

Dr. Christian K. :

You're welcome. Good luck. I think that is a good idea.

Customer:

ok
