My dog will not...

My dog will not eat and even water seems to come back up as foam. She is 7 yrs. old and has seizures and is on phenobarb. Normally when she throws up foam that indicates she is going to have a seizure. I have been getting her phenobarb down and hoping it is staying down. Is it ok to give her the phenobarb. She normally goes to sleep after taking it. I'm just trying to make it with her until an 11 o'clock appt. tomorrow at the vet. I have fed her chicken and rice 2 days ago and she has not eaten since. The main thing I know is to keep her drinking because of dehydration. Any advice please.

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 your dog?

I don't think so. She weighs 14 lbs.

Hello. Dr Sheree here to help.

How long has she been on Phenobarbital?

about 6 years.

Hopefully things are going better for you. I would have blood tests done to make sure she is handling the phenobarbital (liver). Also a concern would be pancreatitis which can cause vomiting. These tests will tell. I agree keeping her hydrated is the best option.
