Hello, my name is***** and I'd like to help you and Sassy. A few questions to better assess the situation.

1. When she didn't feel good a few days ago, what was happening? Did you see your vet at that time?

2. When was her last fecal sample at the vet?

3. Does she seem painful in the belly?

4. Any missing toys or new plants she could have nibbled on?

I send my question in late last night, and I still have not received a response?? My dog Sassy a peek a poo, 6 lbs, and almost 6 years old threw up two times last night. Her supper was in it which consisted of boiled chicken breast. It also had a slimmy , snot like appearance to it... Around a week ago she did the same thing and her stomach sounded really loud and growly . It was after that a week ago, I started her on the chicken breast.. I did change her dry food about a month ago to the brand "Blue". which she picks through... Is it possible she may have drainage, and this could be the appearance of the vomit? Should I take her new dry food away? Thank you.
