My dog hasn't eaten in 2 days, has diarrhea and is vomiting…

Customer Question
My dog hasn't eaten...

My dog hasn't eaten in 2 days, has diarrhea and is vomiting brown liquid. At first I thought it was an upset stomach but now he is very listless too.

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 your dog?

He has Cushing Disease and I stopped his thyroid mess about 2 mos ago. Once the mess stopped, he had more energy and was happy so I kept him off.

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about your dog. I just came online and saw your question; I am sorry you did not get assistance from a Just Answer expert before now.

If he has not eating in two days, and is vomiting, this could be serious. If you lift his lip to check his gums, are they pink in color?

Can he drink and keep water down? If not, he is probably dehydrated and may be in need of supplemental fluids.

What are you doing to treat his Cushing's disease?
