Customer Question

Surprising coincidence; we think this is completely unrelated to our query last Saturday (July 25), but our dog, Brenna, is throwing up again. She has been absolutely fine for the last several days since then, when she ingested, and regurgitated (intact)
the small, cooked, lamb bone. In the last 24 hours her bowel movements have been much softer than usual, but other than that she has seemed fine and in good mood, energy, appetite etc. This evening we fed her her usual dinner at approximately 7:30pm. An hour
later she was playing and all seemed fine. Approximately an hour later (9:25pm) she vomited and she appeared to regurgitate her entire dinner, more or less undigested. Her full dinner came up in 2 bouts of vomiting. She has vomited approximately 3 more times
since then (most recently just a few minutes ago), although by now she's just bringing up foamy stomach juices. There can't be much else left at this point. She is obviously lethargic and not feeling well, but she's pretty young (~3.5 years old) and so hasn't
ever felt this way before as far as we know, so is probably mystified at her own symptoms. Just checking if we should monitor or need to make a trip to the ER vet.

Good morning,
I do apologize that none of my colleagues could assist you while I was away. Still, how is Brenna just now?
Is she at least keeping water down?
Is she tender in her belly today?
Have you treated her with anything yet?
