Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response.
Yes, Scooter likes to get into things in the yard that is why we generally walk him rather than have him loose in the yard. However, I was outside with him and didn't see him get into anything.
His gums are pink and the color comes back well when I push on them.
I did give him his heart worm meds last night, but I have given them to him monthly without any problem in the past.
For now, I would fast Scooter to give his GI system a rest. Since he is an adult dog, a 12-24 hr fast will not hurt him and let his gut calm down. Continue to offer small amounts of water at a time. When you do begin feeding him again, you will want to offer frequent, small meals of something very digestible for him. These would include items like boiled hamburger or chicken and rice or pasta. No sauces or gravies, but a little non greasy broth would be OK. If the GI signs improve, I would continue that for a few days and then slowly wean him back onto his normal food and feeding schedule. Of course, if the vomiting recurs or if he is just not acting himself, I would definitely suggest that you seek veterinary attention.
