My dog is not eating, and is throwing up and hasn't pooped

Customer Question

My dog is not eating, and is throwing up and hasn't pooped all day.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I can think of just his regular food.
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Milo and he's around 4 months.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Milo?
Customer: He hasn't moved around much just lays there.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he had these signs?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking or vomiting?

Can Milo drink and 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 been straining like he needs to pass stool? Did he have diarrhea before today?
