My nine week old Shih-tzu began vomiting and drooling just a little while ago. She keeps shaking her head, about every ten to fifteen seconds. She is in a play-yard all day with a couple of toys and a bed. I'm not sure what it could be? She last vomited around thirty minutes ago, however, she is drooling quite a bit.
I am sorry to hear about Chloe.
My name isXXXXX am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
Vomiting, drooling, and head shaking sounds like either she ate something she should not have eaten, or she is having an allergic reaction to something like a sting or an insect or spider bite.
If you look at her gums, do they look a normal bright pink, or are they pale?
If her gums are pink, that is a good sign.
I am not seeing responses from you. I hope you can see what I am writing.
I can try to connect another way if I do not hear from you soon.
She just keeps shaking her head, drooling, and now a little bit more active
In my opinion, her gums seem a little pale to me. She is tiny, a little over two pounds.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX try the Benedryll. Is it possible for her to be in shock or dehydrated and still be playing and wagging her tail? Thank you for your help, I so appreciate it.
Thank you, I checked and she does not seem dehydrated. Now she just seems tired. I'll have her close to me tonight, and keep an eye on her. I hope she's alright skipping dinner. I know these tiny breeds tend to get hypoglycemic.
