Customer Question
My dog has thrown...

My dog has thrown up clear liquid 3 times, is lethargic, and not interested in food. But will drink small amounts of water. This has been going on about 24 hours. If I leave and come back he meets Mr at the door then goes back to being lethargic. He is a 12 year old min poodle.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your poodle?

Not that I can think of
