I have a German Shepherd Dog and we live in a remote

I have a German Shepherd Dog and we live in a remote location. On Saturday she started vomiting and would not eat. She drank water but would throw up soon thereafter. Just watery brown liquid. I took her to the Vet on Monday. Blood tests were normal. X-ray indicated no blockage. Got Metronidazezole tablets. Since then she is lethargic and will not eat. In 4 days I have managed to get her to eat about 1/2 can of dog food. She usually eats Pedigree dry food. She was down to 79 lb. from 88 a year ago.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the German shepherd dog?Customer: She is 9 years old and has been in good health. she is usually very active. We live in a remote area and it is possible she got hold of something and ingested it but I am not aware of anythin. We have a 20 lb. mutt and she is fine.
