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.

Good morning. My dog is 10 pounds. She was diagnosed with Bronchitis. The Vet gave her an antibiotic and a taper of Prednisone starting with 5mg per day for 7 days, then 1/2 a pill for 5 days then 1/2 a pill every other day for 5 days. Does that seem excessive to you?

My dog has been on alprozolam to help with her anxiety at

my dog has been on alprozolam to help with her anxiety at night (she is a nervous dog as it is but she has particularly gotten worse) she also has been taking tramadol occasionally as she partially tore her ACL and instead of surgery I opted for rest. She is on the mend, no longer limping and is doing better. She is no longer taking tramadol consistently, and has only been taking alprozolam. Lately at night, the past few months shes been on it, she has gotten very antsy at night, panting, breathing heavy and constantly on the move. She can not lay down for more than a minute without popping back up. I am thinking it is an adverse reaction to the medication since this behavior only happens at night time, and she only gets medication at night time. During the day she is calm. She was phased down to .50 of alprozolam, and my vet said its a low enough dose that I can probably just stop giving it to her. She was taking .75, I phased her down to about .60, and now .50. Is it ok to do? and have you seen behavior like this?
