My Dog, Chloe, 16 yr old schnauzer went to our regular vet

Customer Question

My Dog, Chloe, 16 yr old schnauzer went to our regular vet today. She is very constipated still. They were able to remove some. I'm concerned that she is now throwing up. 2X in last 2 hours. Do I need to find an all night clinic that is open?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What treatments do they have her on?

Does she seem tender, sore, or have a hard belly when you press on it?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Can she keep anything down?

Is she straining to try to pass stool at this point?
