My 7 yr old yorkiepoo's stomach is round & hard. she is

Customer Question

My 7 yr old yorkiepoo's stomach is round & hard. she is shaking slightly which started last night but she's had the round hardness for 3 days now. she had 11 teeth extracted a month ago & ive been feeding her canned shredded chicken with broth ever since. she is not herself. I'm worried.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: not that I can think of. she threw up a little foam last night & didn't want to eat nor did she ask for food this morning.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

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

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
