Hello again

I have worked out a very quick answer for you below.

1. The best thing to do is to give the ER vet a call without delay. I have seen some dogs present like this where the diagnosis turned out to be a twisted stomach { Bloat }

2. Best play safe, if this is the diagnosis then every minute counts, this can be a quickly fatal condition.

Dr Scott
