Customer Question

my golden has been throwing up since last night. I gave her 1/2 cup of chicken and rice and she threw it up within 20 mins of eating. I saw her drink water and seems to keep it down but can't keep food down. I have some Promethazine 25mg. Could I give her 1/2 a tablet? if so, how often.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: not that I know of
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Harlow...almost 4 years old
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Harlow?
Customer: no, she normally pretty healthy

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Human food? The opportunity to get into the trash? Torn up toys, etc?
