Oh did the service just ask you to do a phone call? Sorry about that- highly annoying.

I can help you just fine by text

I will be honest- I am much more concerned with a 15 year old dog that is vomiting then a 2 year old dog- and pardon me for stating the obvious.

Is there any chance that Wally could have gotten into something he should not have?

NO history of pancreatitis?

Is he overweight?

He is probably more underweight - no history but being a Labrador, he wolfs his food down
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Thanks for the additional history.

It is possible that we are dealing with a simple gastritis/enteritis and that symptomatic treatment will get him through.

However, if he continues to vomit or stops drinking or is lethargic/depressed then he needs to be examined.

Are you comfortable trying a few things at home first?
