My 1 year old Chihuahua terrier had some vomiting this

Customer Question
My 1 year old...

My 1 year old Chihuahua terrier had some vomiting this morning and has been lethargic since. He was fine when he woke up this morning. My mother-in-law said she gave him some sausage as usual and then after that he wasn't feeling well. Is it something I can just monitor for now and take him in to our vet in the morning?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

He doesn't have any allergies. He has been scratching his right ear for about a week.
