I woke up at 3 am to her throwing up. Looked like all of her

I woke up at 3 am to her throwing up. Looked like all of her dinner from 6 PM some not digested. She went outside, didn't eat grass that I could see, came back in drank water then went to sleep. Woke up about an hour later to her throwing up again and more liquid this time with some undigested food. Let her out again and she drank more water again. I was up about 2 hours cleaning up and trying to fall back asleep so we slept in until about 8:45. She didn't get out of her dog bed right away which is unusual. Let her out and she usually urinates then runs back up to the house to have breakfast. I put her food down and she walked over looked at I and walked away. This girl LOVES her food. Never in 3 years having her has she not scarfed down. She went back out and just laid on the deck. Actually as I was typing I let her back in and she is now eating, but not with her usual gusto. Of note, she did eat something yesterday on our walk. She is like a walking garbage disposal. And once she finds something she keeps eating even if I try and tell her no. I am not sure if it was a pod from a tree or dead animal parts. She never throws up though normally. Wondering if there is anything else I should 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 dog?Customer: She is an older rescue I think about 9 years old. Otherwise no.

I'm trying to help out my brother who has an 8 year old

Hello. I'm trying to help out my brother who has an 8 year old Australian shepherd. I own the parents and they are both healthy. Dad is 12 will be 13 this year mom is 10. Short version my brother is on the road a lot and saw his dog on Christmas for a weekend, all was fine. The last 2 weeks he has not been eating right and vomiting. He's home with him now but the dog seems disorientated still not eating lost weight, and wimpers at the touch. He was told by a vet it could be cancer. Could a cancer set in that fast? He doesn't have the money there asking for xrays and blood work so i thought i would see what i could help out with online. any help is greatly appreciated.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 Dad?Customer: no, he is just aging. some mornings hard to get up and moving. Other than his gray face now he is good.

I need a vet who is an expert in dog nutrition. My 22 pound

I need a vet who is an expert in dog nutrition. My 22 pound possibly poodle mix dog Winston (age about 10) presented with very high triglycerides last May (2500!) and was put on a low fat diet, Royal Canin Gastrointestinal low fat kibble plus a little of their canned food. By August they were down to 800 and now are 476.But just now he was diagnosed with diabetes. We started insulin two days ago. His other blood work is fairly normal.What on earth do I feed him? With diabetes you want low carb. For triglycerides, low fat (although, this confuses me, because my experience is that low carb lowers triglycerides a lot in people. But, the low fat food did help). So I have no idea what to do.Also, how much do I feed him, calorie wise?Finally, is there a link between these two diseases, high triglycerides and diabetes? His thyroid was a tiny bit below range, but the doctor didn't think it was a significant issue. Cushing's, maybe?
