Customer Question

My 120 lbs GSD is vomiting dark brown mucus. He is acting sick. He had boosters on Saturday, and I did notice either saturday pm or maybe yesterday he tried to vomit, but it was very little and appeared clear mucus/ saliva. He had been eating and drinking fine. I took him to his outside kennel this afternoon for 2-3 hours when it was cooler. When I brought him in I noticed he acted very tired, then he started vomiting. (2x) He will not even take a piece of cheese which is his favorite. He seems almost drunk. My concern now is that the people mowed our lawn sometime today, and I am concerned that they sprayed inside his kennel with something.

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 couldnot aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

By drunk, do you mean weak or wobbly?

Did the brown mucus vomit look like coffee ground type material?

What color are his gums? Pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Has he had any black stool?

Do you know what treatment they used in the yard?
