Customer Question

Hi. A dog we are "babysitting" has puked about 6 times in the last couple hours. It is white and a little foamy. It also looked like blood drops in it. I am wondering what to do
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that we know of.
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Shadow. He is a male. He's one
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Shadow?
Customer: no

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

Can he keep water down?

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

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

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

Any diarrhea?
