Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi, I can help you with your question today. How long has Willow been ill?
Ok, there are many different things which could be causing this. We can see vomiting, diarrhea and inappetence from eating something unusual (gastroenteritis), intestinal parasites, pancreatitis, and toxin ingestions for example. Do you know if she could have eaten anything out of the garbage, chewed a toy, ingested a chemical or plant, etc?
OK. I do recommend having her evaluated by your regular vet. I would start with a physical exam and some blood work. If these are normal, we can start with conservative supportive care such as outpatient fluids, anti-nausea medication and and anti-diarrheal medication. I would also send a stool sample to the lab to check for parasites.
I understand. It would be reasonable to forego the blood work and just do the medications.
Aside from that, how long is it since she last vomited?
