She has been vomiting few hours, She is an (almost) 11 year

Customer Question

She has been vomiting for a few hours
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: She is an (almost) 11 year old, female, chocolate lab
JA: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?
Customer: Yes, a chocolate lab... A dog
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I can find. She has been known to do that, but I don't see any evidence. She has thrown up a lot.
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Bailey
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bailey?
Customer: She's just not acting like herself. She keeps walking around. I keep finding her in odd places of the house. I finally put her in my bathroom to keep her in one place.

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

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

What did her vomit look like?

Can she keep water down?

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

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
