My dog had been limping for the past few days, this morning

Customer Question

My dog had been limping for the past few days, this morning he threw up clear bile about 5 times. His stomach and thighs seem to be a little swollen and firm.
JA: 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 your dog?
Customer: He seems to be lethargic, not himself. He hasn't pooped regular since he started limping.

1) How old is your dog?
2) Is he taking any medication for the limp?
3) Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?
4) Any history of illness or injury?
