Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am so sorry to hear Zulu is not feeling well, pale gums are a very large concern which can indicate several things such as trauma, bleeding into the abdomen or chest, reduced production of red cells, increased destruction of red cells (immune mediated or viral). The concern with the pale gums is that he is going to go into shock without being able to oxygenate his organs and would strongly advise finding a veterinary er in your area and not wait until morning if you are ableHere is more information about the pale gums:http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/anemia-in-dogs/431I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today...you are both in my thoughts
