Customer Question
My dog has been...

My dog has been throwing up but only at night. His right eye is looking in a different direction from the left. he's a cockapoo if that helps. he doesnt seem to be in pain but is very lethargic and his poop is runny. i just want to make sure he's comfortable

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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

He has a heart thing. i dont remember what its called but it doesnt pump as well. im told its very common for old dogs and hes almost 13

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I AM NOT SET UP TO MAKE PHONE CALLS AND DO NOT SEND THE REQUESTS, BUT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ONLINE. Abnormal positioning of the eyes is called strabismus. It occurs due to a problem with the nerves or muscles that control that part of the eye. You may see it with vestibular disease, which causes problems with balance. That may be why there is vomiting. The runny stool may just be due to the stress of the disease. It is possible there was an injury to that nerve or muscle, a localized inflammatory condition of the nerve (usually caused by the immune system) or a tumor in the area. I cannot rule out that something else internal may be causing the vomiting and diarrhea, such as kidney, liver or pancreatic problems or a primary gastrointestinal issue; but I would look at possible vestibular issues first. I would have your vet take a look at this. Blood work would be a good idea. At the very least, they may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication, medication for diarrhea and medication to control nausea to see if that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
