Hello. My name is***** have been a veterinarian for 11 years and would like to help you this evening. What is your lab's name?
Also, does she ever get into anything that she shouldn't and eat them? (such as toys, garbage, undergarments)
I am happy that she is resting now. Dogs will often eat grass when they have an upset stomach to help make them vomit. If she does start to vomit or act like she is gagging/trying to vomit and nothing is coming up, then that can be a sign of a problem. I recommend monitoring her abdomen, if it appears that is starting to swell and she looks bigger than normal, then that can indicate that she is bloating and needs to see a veterinarian right away. If she has eaten something that she shouldn't have, then a foreign body is a possibility. Sometimes, they will pass on their own and sometimes they require surgery. If she can swallow food, then generally, they do not have something stuck in their throat, so offering a small piece of soft food is an option when she is awake.
