Customer Question

Hi, I'm vacationing in the Dominican Republic from the US and my dog drank tap water 2 days ago for the first and only time since we arrived on 11/1. Today she is lethargic, vomiting foamy, yellow liquid, and is pooping runny diarrhea and blood drops. She is a fully vaccinated 3 y.o. 4 lb Chihuahua. What should I do? Will this run its course or does she need veterinary care?
