Customer Question

My dog is 10 mos old, Chihuahua, female, in good spirits, happy, active and drinking water all day but has been dry heaving and spits up a little ball of white foamy stuff.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your dog?
Customer: Just the attempt to vomit and cant
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: The only thing i can think of is that we sprayed for ants in our patio and maybe she ate something out there with spray on it, she likes to get into things like toilet paper, bird feathers, cardboard, just junk. Eats well too.
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Palomita
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Palomita?
Customer: She only weighs abouts 5lbs

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.

1) When did Palomita last eat normally?
2) How often is she retching/vomiting?
3) Any coughing?
4) When did the vomiting begin?
5) Aside from the ant spray you laid down, has she eaten anything else that you know of within the last 7 days?
