Is this a live chat? He's been throwing up nearly every day

Customer Question

Hello. Is this a live chat? He's been throwing up nearly every day the last 4 days. No more than twice a day. His energy has been fine but he hasn't wanted to play tonight and then threw up more white foam that may have possible had a little bit of blood. Not sure if I should get him to an aftercare clinic or watch him through the night and see if he improves
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not to my knowledge.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Dracula. Should I get him to an after hours place immediately? It's 12 am here. Or should I get him there in the morning?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Dracula?
Customer: No

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

Has it been only vomiting or has he been coughing beforehand?

Can he 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 had any diarrhea?
