Hi Doctor James. A friend of mine has a husky and says that he hasn't eaten in 2 days and he has been throwing up too. He does drink water but he hardly walks. He has been laying down too much when normally, he is always waking around.

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarianand I would like to help you today.

In regards ***** ***** friend's dog, can you ask them if his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If they press on his belly, doeshe have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Is he keeping the water that he drinks down?
