Hello. We just came home and found that our cat knocked over a container of cupcakes and our yellow lab ate all 6 cupcakes. I do not know the type of chocolate. Three of the cupcakes were chocolate. The dog is 100-105 pounds. He ate them about 2-4 hours ago. Should I give him activated charcoal? We can not reach our vet.

Hi, my dog, pickles, has been acting odd the past 2 days. He's a Beagle, ***** *****, pit bull mix (as far as I know, he's a rescue from the humane society.) He is around 5 years old and normally an energetic, playful dog, but has become lethargic the past 2 days and tonight my wife noticed his ears are swollen and a bit warm. He also hasn't had much of an appetite. Any thoughts on what could be wrong?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help Jack. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jack?Customer: His name is***** shows no signs of abnormal weight loss or gain. I was told by his vet that he is allergic to flea bites. In the summers his skin used to turn pink, but since keeping him treated for fleas with a collar or topical that issue hasn't come back.

My friend's dog (I am pet sitting at my house) began to

my friend's dog (I am pet sitting at my house) began to throw up about 8 hours after eating. He is a very calm labrador. By 4 am it was yellow foam. He was interested in eating (about 1/3 c), it stayed down & 20 min later I gave him another 1/3 cup, he became more animated (tail wagging) & so another 20 min & the last 1/3 cup. I went to work, upon arriving home 8 hours later, he had thrown up several times --digested & partially digested food. Not mucusy, no blood, food colored (brown). He was behaving normally--peed & defacated outside --normal normal. He ate slowly & has vomited small portions in the past 2 hours. Nose is cold & wet. He does not appear to be in pain.

We received a pug puppy yesterday, he is about 6-8 weeks

He pooped and urinated at 2:30 AM today afterwards he played for about an hour and went to bed around 3:30 AM. He got up around 5:30 AM and has be throwing up clear to yellow liquid. He does not feel like eating or drinking and he is lethargic and wants to sleep. Suggestions?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 dog?Customer: I think he was malnourished when we received him because you could see his lower ribs when he moves about.
