Customer Question
Hello ! I have...

Hello ! I have a 7 month old pitbull with shots . He hasn't been eating or drinking water and Now he is throwing up clear

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

I'm not sure , I've been in the hospital for a few days and I had someone watch him for me . I don't know if it's because he missed me or he probably ate something bad outside

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Pitbull's name?

His name is ***** ***** he's been peeing and all . He loves to dig . I have a feeling he probably Ate a plastic part of a cigar

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Drakeo?

He's also very active but now he's just not him . He still walks and Wags the tail . He's just skinny and weak . He does chew on a lot . What can it be ?

Hello, I am afraid that you opted out of speaking with the Dr. Paul. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he been showing signs? And how long ago did he eat that plastic cigar piece?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Any straining to pass stool, diarrhea, or black stool?
