My five year old Boston Terrier has vomited 3 times since

Customer Question

My five year old Boston Terrier has vomited 3 times since 2:30 pm today. First it was white mucus stuff, then she tried to eat and vomited up her food. She nipped a neighbor 10 days ago, and animal control took her and have kept her locked up for 10 days. She was very healthy and energetic, and now she is skinny, whins, and looks unhappy. Also, she has a runny nose. She starts gagging before she vomits. I am really worried about her as she is a tiny little Boston Terrier. Should I give her pedelyte tonight. We have vets open tomorrow in my area where I live.

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 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:

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 anythingshe should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
