Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
I am sorry to hear Java is having this problem.
Has this happened in the past?
Does she seem normal otherwise?
Is she eating?
If it is happening that often I would have her seen by a vet today. She should not be dry heaving that much. I am worried she might have some foreign object that may be causing some blockage or obstruction or she has very severe inflammation in the GI tract.
I doubt the shedding has anything to do with it.
However I would recommend her being seen today since she is not feeling well. I don't want her to get worse throughout the day.
I would try to keep her on an empty stomach. It makes x-rays and ultrasound easier if they are needed.
You are very welcome.
I wish you both the best.
Have a wonderful rest of your day!
