Customer Question

We have a 6 month old Mini Yorkee and she started making that gagging noise today that sometimes they do but this time you can see she does not feel well at all. Very lathargic. Has gas. Her nose is cool and moist? Thank uou
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Sami
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sami?
Customer: She has not been spayed yet. We have Two other dogs that so far feel fine! I have actually been sick though!
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.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Has it just been gagging? Or any lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Is she drinking normally? Can she keep water down?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
