Customer Question

We are out on an island so not easy to get to vet except in real emergency. Our dog threw up all dinner last night several hours after eating, food looked undigested. Just threw up morning meal given 3 hours ago, also undigested. Did notice him eating some grass yesterday. He is an older dog. While he is quieter than usual, does not seem to be in pain, and does seem interested in eating.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer,I am DrD, will try to help you with your question. I need to know more about your dog's current situation before I make a suggestion or advice. What kind of food are you feeding him with ? Commercial dry, table food etc ? How is his bowel movements ? Did he experience such an episode before ? Is he drinking more and urinating more than usual recently ? Did you see any frank blood ,mucus or coffee ground like specks on his vomitus ?
