My 8 you lab retriever has vomited and gagged multiple times overnight. The vomit is dark coffee colored no "grounds". Should I withhold food and watch...? We live in a small town and our vet is not in. I left a message but haven't heard back yet.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I know of but did get unseen exercise on a country road yesterday and loves to run.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Tasha is almost 8 years old and looks like a black retriever but acts like a border collie
. (Rescued dog at 5 -6 months)
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tasha?
Customer: Anxious about thunder ( we have some this am)but never had this before. Rabies shot 1 week ago.
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.
