Customer Question
Last night my yorkie...

Last night my yorkie heaved all night. earlier today she had a long formed bowel movement after vomiting . no blood in stool. she has a history of hemorhagic gastroenteritis. I gave her rice and canned chicken. she hasn't had any more episodes but she seems to be in pain. I held off taking her to the vet but now concerned

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Yorkie eat anything unusual?

I'm not sure if she ate something. my 2 yr old niece was here over the weekend but she was fine sunday when I took her home

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

She's not spaded but doesn't appear to be in having her heat

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your Yorkie, please?

Regretfully, such vomiting isn't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder.

She seems better today. Still very clingy but went outside this morning. Not quite as active as usual but no more vomiting except the one episode and hasn’t passed stool yet today so hopefully it is resolving
