Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and Bullet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.
Can you look at his gums and see if they are nice and pink and if the color comes back quickly when you press on them.
Is he still vomiting today?
Is he eating and drinking today?
Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
Thank you for the reply.
Yes I would expect that if he was vomiting and hasn't been taking in food and water as usual, he is likely somewhat dehydrated, which could contribute to the vomiting. What concerns me is why was he vomiting in the first place? With the odor that you describe, I am concerned about a possible metabolic problem as these can lead to changes in the odor of a dog. Common metabolic changes that can do this are things like kidney disease and diabetes, but even some GI diseases can as well.
Fluid coming from the nose can be consistent with a foreign object in the nasal cavity or even a tumor and that can lead to odor as well if it gets infected.
I would definitely recommend that you have Bullet examined by your veterinarian so that a proper diagnosis can be made and appropriate treatment offered. In the meantime, you can try to offer small bits of water at a time or even small amounts of chipped ice to keep him hydrated.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
