Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.
Is she showing any signs of bloat- distended abdomen? Dry heaving?
Can you check her gum color- is it pink or pale?
Is she breathing normally or fast/ labored?
Hi, sorry for the long wait. How is she doing now? Do you still need help with her?
If she's bloated and dry heaving, then she needs to get to a vet right away. If this is true bloat where her stomach is twisted, that is a surgical emergency. It usually doesn't go on over 2 days, but maybe it was not twisted last night and now it is twisting.
