My 13 year old boxer has been dry heaving for the past hour…

Customer Question
My 13 year old...

My 13 year old boxer has been dry heaving for the past hour and throwing up foam. He seems to be calming down abit now but I am still worried about him.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Boxer eat anything unusual?

No I he had dinner, his medicine and I ran to the store and when I got back he started and thank you.

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

He is on phenobarbital to control seizures. He has been on them since last sept with no problems and my lab\chow is acting fine.
