Customer Question
My female yorkie (almost 5...
My female yorkie (almost 5 years old) has always had a sensitive stomach - diarrhea if nervous, spitting up bile if stomach empty. Saturday morning she wouldn't eat her morning meal (she never skips a meal, unless something is wrong!) and then she spit up what looked like bile with a few specks of red, she also had a few episodes of diarrhea that day with some of it red/jelly looking. Since then I have fed her bland chicken and rice...her poop is now formed but occassionally has a tiny bit of red/jelly looking loose poop. She also threw up again this morning (yellowish/brownish with specks of red). What could this be? Do I need to take her into the vet?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Is she drinking? Can she keep water down?
Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
