Customer Question
My dog has been...

My dog has been vomiting and has diarrhea for the past 2 days and his skin is red and hot to the touch. He had a dead bird in his mouth the day before this started could that be the reason he is sick. He's normally very healthy.

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

I had switch his dry dog food to a different mix but we've done that before without any problems

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Jack

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

He's 8 years old and normally very healthy.

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What is he bringing up in his vomit?

What does the diarrhea look like?

Can Jack keep any water down?

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

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

Did he just pick up the bird or eat any of it?

Anything else he could have gotten into (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
