Customer Question

He is 11 weeks old and he has been dry heaving for an hour or so. Nothing is coming up. I think he might have eaten some cat food last night but not sure.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Colby
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Colby?
Customer: He is up-to-date on his shots and he is healthy other wise.

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

Can he keep water down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, distension, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Has he had any diarrhea?
