Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a 9 mth old mini schauzer who is unwell. On Thursday night he vomited in his bed during the night. I thought it was caused by him eating a few doggy treats at my sons as we caught himeating them. However Friday morning his stools were very soft and we were careful about not feeding him anything but his chicken and sweetpotatoe morning as didnt think he had a problem. He has

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

He did eat some of my sons food, rice and a little mince . Not much before I rescued the dinner. I dont know how long it had been left out. My sons dog was eating it too and I think it was about8 hours . He was passing only brown water stools this morning so was gave him fresh aboria rice and a little steamed chicken breast. He seemed to improve so as it was only a small amount this afternoon I gave him more. He really perked up so my husband took him for a walk but after returning he was sick again and has 2 very small very soft stools. He is again very listless

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Schnauzer's name and age?

Name Harold (Harry) age nearly 10 months

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

Did you get the rest of my email?

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

No I made sure I gave him water with a seringe during the night and a little honey but he is not well what should I do.

What is he bringing up in his vomit?

Can he 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?

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