I have a chihuahua, age 1-3 yrs old. She has an umbilical hernia and saw a vet a few day ago. They suggested changing the dog food, but the dog gets up throwing up bile, without any food in it. Yesterday she threw up in the middle of the day (white foamy emesis). What can I do?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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about the chihuahua?Customer: She has always been lethargical since I got her from the rescue. She spends most of her day laying down.

Hi!I purchased a female, 9 weeks old, 1 lb. 5 Oz. She had a hypoglycemic espisode. Head to one side, no focus, lithargic, etc. Gave her a lot of corn syrup, 6 cc lactate ringer(3 hours ago). It took a while but she came around. Now she won't eat. Hand fed her some Royal Canon starter mousse. Actually, opened her mouth and put it n her tongue!! She drank a lot of water on her own. How do I keep her from crashing again?????? It was scary. Thought I was going to lose her.

My dog, who's 12.5 yr old, has been diagnosed with cushing

Hi my dog, who's 12.5 yr old, has been diagnosed with cushing disease and pancreatitis. He hasn't eaten since the vet put him on Vetoryl. After few days, he decided to put him off from the medicine and see if he was eating. The first day he called to say that he managed to eat a bit of food, but since yesterday he stopped eating and he's still refusing to eat so they are syringe feed him. Is it possible that the pancreatitis is causing the loss of appetite then?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if to will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about to?Customer: how long will it take him to respond?JA: I'm trying to find the right Veterinarian for you right now.
