Customer Question
My 8 yo dog...

My 8 yo dog has been vomiting white phlegm for about 3 hours. He does eat and drink water.

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

Not that I am aware of....but he might have snuck something into his mouth. It just seems to be lasting a long time for an upset stomach?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Charlie, age 8 or so--he's a rescue so not sure of age.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

I don't think so
