My 9 year old GSP started acting poorly about a hour ago.

Customer Question
My 9 year old...

My 9 year old GSP started acting poorly about a hour ago. Started shaking and staggering a bit. She threw up, but it was just her dog food that she had eaten about 30-60 minutes earlier. I called the Vet emergency line, and the vet told me to give her hydrogen peroxide to make her throw up some more. I did, and got her to drink it by mixing it with broth. She hasn't thrown up though. The emergency vet seems rather unconcerned.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. 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 the dog?

Probably is, but nothing I can think of now.

Hello, this is Dr. Sara. I would think the emergency vet is concerned about Bloat. Have you heard of this or know what it is? How is she feeling afer the H2O2?

I do not know what the bloat is. She is still doing very poorly.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Bloat is a condition that can happen in large breed dogs (German Shepards very commonly). They build up gas in their stomach and then the stomach can twist. It is also called a GDV if the stomach is twisted as well as filled with gas. The typical signs are restlessness, unproductive vomiting (dry heaves). What are you seeing? If she is developing a bloat it is an emergency. Maybe she just has an upset stomach.....what is she doing?
