Customer Question

My dog ate a dead bird about 24 hours ago. She threw up her breakfast and si lethargic. She isn't closing her mouth all the way, but nothing in mouth or throat as far as I can tell. She had a normal stool this morning. She eats grass often in her normal state.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee onetoday.

Is she just holding her mouth open? Any changes or sores in the mouth?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Have you seen any black stool?

Can she keep water down?

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
