Customer Question
He had his second...

He had his second vomiting 'episode' last night in the 4 weeks since I adopted him. He has vomited prob 10 times in the 4 weeks but the 'episodes' involve a lot of vomit and he is shaking and lethargic. Then it just sort of goes away and he is his normal self. I took him to the pet emergency room after the first time but they didn't find anything,

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?

I started him on a new food yesterday which he ate and the time before he could have eaten my friends pups food but it seems like an extreme reaction

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please? Can you clarify the frequency of his vomiting? You mentioned a "second vomiting episode in the 4 weeks since (you) adopted him" but also stated that he has "vomited (probably) 10 times in the (past) 4 weeks".
