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

**she has thrown up twice but one after another and is acting very strange, as in shes not sleeping and pretty restless.

Veterinarian's Assistant: This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

I reviewed your conversation with my excellent colleague Rebecca and I agree with her assessment. Our primary concern are bone fragments that may have obstructed the small intestine of such a small dog. To best assess if fragments are present and, if so, they are causing her restlessness, X-rays of her gastrointestinal tract are indicated. The best senario is that bony fragments have only irritated the lining of her GI tract and the tincture of time will suffice to normalize her. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
