Customer Question
8yr old shits tsu...

8yr old shits tsu. Vomiting since 3 am Sat night. Ate nothing this morning n half a meal this evening. Still vomiting. Had a bone from butcher shop that she chewed on for bout an hour last night. She is drinking more water than normal. I don’t know what to do for her. What kind of danger is she in?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

I don’t think so.

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 dog, please?

To answer you directly, persistent vomiting will dehydrate and electrolyte imbalance my patient. Bones can obstruct and perforate the intestinal tract causing peritonitis and sepsis (widespread infection).

I agree with your reply. I just checked on her. She still is not doing well. Vomiting appears to have stopped, none in last 12 hours, but she is still shaking n nose is still warm. I think I need to find an emergency vet that will see her today, Sunday? Can u help me find one today in the Medford, Oregon area?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I believe that the Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center on***** in Medford is closest to you. (###) ###-####/p>
