I am sorry to hear your dog fell and is having this problem.

How bad was the fall?

How long has she been without eating any food?

Is she on any medications at all right now?

How long has she been vomiting up blood?

He is not moving. Fall was yesterday. No medication. All. Day yesterday and now through night. He crawled under the couch. Twitching. I just don't know what to do

Vomited blood three times tonight. Nothing else because he hasn't eaten.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

I apologize, but I am unable to do a phone call right at this moment.

Given the signs you are describing, I recommend that your dog see a veterinarian as soon as possible. The signs may be due to severe trauma and I worry about a significant gastrointestinal bleed. When any human or pet is vomiting up blood and not wanting to eat, it is definitely advised to have a doctor visit. The vet will likely want to check some baseline bloodwork to look for anemia or other blood abnormalities as well as taking x-rays to look for abnormalities in the belly. If you are able to get to a vet, I would do that as soon as possible.

He had a tick removed Sun at grooming. We are questioning limes disease ? He ran off porch and fell about 20 feet.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

I would think lyme is unlikely unless your dog is not on monthly flea/tick prevention every month. Potentially anaplasmosis, however tick prevention every month would make that unlikely as well. These are however very easy things to test for (small blood sample) so I would recommend testing just to rule it out.

What should I do until tomorrow ?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Most likely this is related to severe trauma from falling.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

With the vomiting, it is unlikely oral medications will help you at this point. There is not much I can recommend at the moment until he gets to a vet as oral anti-inflammatory/pain medications can worsen bleeding so he will need other types of pain meds to help with that as well as injectable medications to avoid him vomiting the meds right back up on an empty stomach. I would take him to the vet as soon as possible, which will likely require a trip to the emergency vet. If you cannot do that, I would keep him rested and avoid access to stairs so there is no risk of falling down the stairs. You can give pepcid AC (famotidine) at 1mg per pound of body weight once or prilosec (omeprazole) at 0.5 mg per pound of body weight once to help the stomach if you have some available, but he may or may not vomit it back up.

If your dog seems to be declining between now and when your vet opens up, I recommend heading to an emergency vet.

No. This is a scam. You charged 28 bucks for each text. My bank shut down my card. Thank you very much. I shouldn't even reply to this. I am disputing all the charges and now have no way to pay for things until I get a new card.
