She is throwing up...

She is throwing up. off an on for the past 4 hours. white foaming liquid. she will throw up ( or try to ) for about 10 minutes, then she stops for about 40 minutes.

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

No.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?

Breezy, she is a pom, and about 12 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Breezy?

She is Apiquel once a day, and it works very well for her for allergies

Good evening.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I would be happy to help you!

I am quite concerned- as I am sure you are too.

She is older and the symptoms are quite severe. I am worried about something like pancreatitis due to the sudden onset and intensity

She is going to quickly get dehydrated and suffer electrolyte problems amongst other things

I am sorry to have to recommend this but she needs to be examined tonight

They will check her blood and urine and also a pancreas specific test called cPLI

I would also consider abdominel x-rays or better yet an abdominal ultrasound to evaluate all her abdominal organs including the pancreas

They can give fluids and electrolytes and medications to settle her stomach

Make sense?

Paul
