Customer Question
My little dogis 13...

My little dogis 13 yes old. It showed sudden behavior change. Foami around the mouth, yelping, swollen and hard abdomen, tears running from the eyes, lost control over bladder and stomach, lost appetite, does not move. Only lying on his side.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Small dog

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Scooby

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Scooby?

He had convulsions. No vomiting though.

It sounds like Scooby is very ill and needs to be seen by a veterinarian immediately in order to try and save his life.

He needs to be examined by a veterinarian. Please take him to a veterinarian now.

Being an older dog this could be

1. Cancer in the abdomen that is causing internal bleeding

2. Heart failure causing trouble breathing and inability to stand

Do you know where the nearest vet clinic is?
