She just threw up, and now she's lying down, but her head is up instead of on the floor.

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

How long has she had these signs?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie plants, chemicals, drugs/meds, etc)?

Can she rise and walk if prompted? Any lameness or changes to her gait?

Any head tilting, drunken walking, or dizziness?

Can she keep water down?

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

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