He's male, about 9 years old. roughly 16 lbs, and has been in good health up to now. My wife recently brought a 10 week old female german shephard dog home this week on Monday. I walk Jack about 2 to 2-1/2 miles 5 times a week.

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: How long has he had these signs?What does his vomit look like?Can he keep water down?Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?Has he had any diarrhea?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
He has only been this way for a day.
He does does retch a little when he throws up.
He came back from his walk and drank a lot of water and threw up a few minutes later.
His gums look a little pale and they appear sticky
It doesn't look like his belly is sore.
He stays inside most of the day, so he could have eaten something bad, but doubtful.
No diarrhea.
