He's a german shepherd/malamute mix. Probably 14 years old.

He's a german shepherd/malamute mix. Probably 14 years old. He's been throwing up white foamy/kind of solid. This happened last Tuesday. He was taken to the vet and given an IV of fluids and kept inside at the vet clinic for a week. They also gave him antibiotics and nausea meds. Thought he had a heat stroke. It has been brutally hot here. Dog has always been outside in a 2 acre fenced in area with plenty of water and shade. Brought him home from vet yesterday and he's been staying in the back room of the house - keeping cool. Let out this morning while it was still cool outside and he started having the same symptoms he did when it all started. Throwing up and coming out his nose , mouth and panting heavily after no exertion. Cooled him off with the water hose and he stopped. Took him back in the house and he immediately laid down and went to sleep. Dog has no past problems - been very healthy until now. It is out in the country - not worried about being poisoned or getting into anything that would cause worry for that. Do not want him to suffer - he is use to being an outdoor dog and I'm afraid his quality of life will never be the same.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the dog ate?Customer: He's not been eating hardly anything. Fed him a 1/2 can of pedigree canned food this morning before being let out.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: I'm worried about heart worms or some other condition that would require him to be penned up or kept inside. I work away from home all day and have no way of caring for him. I just happen to be on vacation this week. I can fix a place in the shed with a watercooler but I'm afraid that wouldn't be enough.

Does wet dog food help with Uti? My dog has been switched

Does wet dog food help with Uti? My dog has been switched recently to a prescription diet for gi issues.. We have just gotten over another infection. She is a great example of " most dogs surviving parvo live a compleatly normal life but rarely....." We have been to the vets at least twice a year for UTIs, liver and kidney infections. Shes only 4 1/2. Switching to all dry would save a ton of money but, If there is a chance that it might save her pain, it wouldnt be worth it. Does the water content in wet food help at all?

I have a 10 year old female Alaskan Malamute that has

i have a 10 year old female Alaskan Malamute that has pancreatitis. I called the vet over to my house and she checked her out and took blood and sent it to the lab and i got the results Tuesday. She is on meds now for it since Wednesday. Tramodol for pain and Thyroxine because She does have underactive thyroid gland. Her hormone level is actually too low to read! She is also in early kidney failure. the vet also gave her low fat, easy to digest food, but she has not eaten in 7 days, Just drinks water, i try to give her as little as i can so she dose not have much. She was vomiting up yellow liquid on monday July 11th just before the vet came over. She kept vomiting though the week until saturday mid day.The vet gave her nausea tablets (Cerenia) and a coating agent (Sulcrate) in hopes that she will feel better enough to eat, and directions how and when to give here all the meds. That was Saturday. I gave her 1 Cerenia right away for the vomiting and within 5 minutes she vomited up the pill. Since then i have not given her that pill. I did give her the Sulcrate and am still giving her the tramadol and Thyroxine. I noticed on saturday night that she was salivating bad then and still is now and she cant get up now. My dog is real heavy and it looks like every 20-30 minutes she salivates bad like maybe she wants to vomit. I cant get her to eat and i thought she might be weak from not eating or even dehydration. I left a call in for the vet to come over tomorrow but she has not replied yet. any ideas what i can do? i put a small video up on youtube of her just now i took it so you can see her .https://youtu.be/VkytgitxgrU
