Customer Question
My 6 year old...

My 6 year old Rottweiler is not eating anything. Not even chicken. She will drink water but just threw up god she must have tried to eat while I was at work. Help

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

Not that I know of. She is inside. No mess it’s ok. Just drinking and she is big 140 pounds but looks like she’s dropped weight

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

Bunko

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

She had hge with blood diaherra before but no bowel problems I am aware of. Not bloody stool

Did this just start today?

Any changes in diet or table scraps she ate last night or yesterday?

Is she panting or laying comfortably?

No about 2-3 days. No change in diet and she is laying comfortably
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I will take her in immediately. Thanks. Vet around the corner.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Meghan Denney, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

With her being 6 years of age in a large breed dog this could be caused by a few conditons. All of which will need to be confirmed and treated with your regular veterinarian. With the vomiting and not eating we have no home remedies available to us to try since she will just throw them up and make herself more dehydrated than she already is becoming as a result.

This could be localized to her gastrointestinal tract and just be inflammation that some conservative therapies like an anti nausea injection and antacid injection

With blood work and some imaging you should have your answer as to what is going on and how to fix it with your veterinarian.
