Sapphire has severe gastroenteritis and may have pancreatitis. The fact that she is throwing up blood means that she has ulcerations in her stomach. Ideally, she needs to be seen by a local veterinarian. They can give her some medication (Cerenia) to control the nausea. She will also need something to help heal the ulceration in the stomach. I typically put patients on pepcid and sucralfate. It is very important that she be seen today if possible. Vomiting blood can become life threatening if not treated. Is it possible to take her to your local veterinarian today? Is there anything she could have gotten into, like medications, trash, high fat people food?

She has an appointment for today with her vet. It’s very unlikely that she got into anything but she has chewed up random items before without us knowing (until we see it come out the backside end). She gets frequently, do you think this could be causing that? I’ve had her since April and we’ve been to the clinic and emergency vet over 5 times for various reasons.
Dog Veterinarian: Kelly Hill, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

It definitely could be something she ingested or chewed on. The major ruleouts are pancreatitis (secondary to high fat intake), gastroenteritis (secondary to inappropriate ingestions, foreign objects, plants), food allergies or parasites. Many times, we never find the cause. I would make sure that no one is feeding her people food. Also, look at her regular dog food. Has it changed recently? She may have an issue with the protein source or grain. Make sure to take in a fresh fecal sample to your appointment. Where did Sapphire come from?

We went in. She had fluids and antibiotics. Doubting much better. She’s a rescue so we don’t know where she came from.
Dog Veterinarian: Kelly Hill, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Hopefully she is eating and keeping it down. Enjoy the Holidays. Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
