Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Thanks for your question.It sounds like vet visit time to me. The intermittent vomiting over the course of the last month is enough concern on its own. As well, we see that bile is yellow and not orange. Couple this with the reduction in her appetite (and this is a Lab that seldom ever have a reduction in their appetites unless something is wrong) and I become worried that there may be an underlying condition that needs to be addressed and treated. At her age, we can see that pain meds can certainly change their appetite so that may have something to do with it. That said, at 14 it would be better to know for certain than to assume all was well when something more concerning was going on.If she has not had blood work performed in the last few months, I would prioritize this (and request that a pancreatic profile be performed if nothing is seen to be sure that this is not pancreatitis). Your vet may also want to couple her oral meds with a bland diet or even gastric protectants or an antacid to help her body to better cope with the secondary symptoms of the meds.
