Customer Question

Hi Nancy
I have a 12 year old Bichon that has thrown up since Sunday has really not been eating. He has been drinking water. He ate a small amount of chicken last night and kept it down but today will not eat and is just lying around not wanting to go out even, he only goes out to pee and back in to his bed

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
What is he bringing up his vomit?
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, tenderness, or tensing?
Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
Has he had any diarrhea?
