Hi, my dog had mucus/foam on her mouth all night, and she just vomited. There were small flecks of blood in the vomit

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

No. She did not seem to be feeling well and did not eat dinner This may sound odd but the vomit had a very foul odor - much stronger than usual, which worried me. And of course the blood

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

She's a yorkie, 15 years old

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

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. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Can she keep water down?

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

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

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?

At about 3am this morning, I heard him vomiting in my room. It was loose, like bile, and had flecks of blood in it. This morning he behaved normally, ate food and drank water, I took him for a walk and he peed, but has not pooped yet. … read more
