Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about Ginger's situation. How long ago was her last vomit? Has she ate or drank anything this morning?
Did she drink her water this morning? When you left for work, was she pretty bright and alert?
That is good that she drank that water and was alert and went on her walk. Could the blood and mucus in the stool this morning just be due to what upset her stomach? That is very possible. A lot of dogs that have vomiting, will have lose stool with mucus and possibly some blood in it right after the nausea event. A very common cause for vomiting is just eating something that just upset the intestinal tract. In her situation, it may be something time is all that is needed. When you get home, it is very important that there is no more vomit and that she starts to eat and still stay active. IF she's having more vomiting, not eating, or getting run down - then a trip to the vet would be a very good idea.
More than likely, worst case scenario would be she has eaten a foreign material that is stuck somewhere in here and that is the cause of the vomiting. IF that is the case, then the vomiting should continue and she won't be eating.
No problem. I am hoping for the best for your girl.
