Vomiting and lethargy. She's been on flouxatine weeks. Any

Customer Question

vomiting and lethargy. She's been on flouxatine for 8 weeks. Any possible relationship between the two? Also, she ate some grass 5 days ago on a walk - seemed to have something stuck in her throat that day (gaggin and coughing) but that went away.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: she's a 6 year old pit bull - has had periods of vomiting throughout her life (seems sensitive to some foods) but always recuperated on her own. She's only had these symptoms for about 12 hours - not sure if we should worry or wait it out.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
