Hello. My dog is very weak today and has vomited twice. Won't go near his water or food bowl

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

I keep his chicken is a plastic container and yesterday he grabbed it and was chewing on the plastic container and swallowed a bit. Also, he ate liverwurst about two pieces.

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

Diesel

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

No, just that he might have swallowed some of the plastic container and liverwurst.

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:

How long has he been showing signs?

Was the plastic he ate sharp edged?

What is he bringing up in his vomit?

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

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

Any diarrhea or black stool? Any straining?
