Customer Question

I have a mini schnauzer who is 11 years old. She has lost a lot of weight, really just skin over bones. Had her to vet last week, she thought it was worms, so gave her worm pills. But I think it only drug her down. Now she's not eating, wants to drink, but can't keep it down. I am so scared she will not be living tomorrow. What can I do for her until I can get her to a vet tomorrow? I have other dogs, don't want them to get what she has. She is off from them.
