Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am very concerned about your dog if he has pale gums. This is an indicator of shock either from bleeding internally (into chest, abdomen), reduced red cell production, toxin (rat poison), immune mediated disease (the body attacks his own red blood cells), parasites, or trauma.If he is pale pink this might be able to wait until morning but I really am concerned with a low body temperature and pale gums about organ function and if there is any possibility of a veterinary er in your area please take this into consideration and have him seen tonight.I do not recommend this lightly but this scenario does urge me to seek emergency care for your beloved friendPlease let me know how else I can assist you both tonight
