I took my 5...

I took my 5 month old puppy with me to Kentucky last week. She had siblings there from same litter. Once back home she is acting strange and not her same energetic self. Last night she vomited white slimy foam and won't eat or drink water & is just moping around. Should I be worried?

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

Not that I know of.

I just got home from work to my pup and she now has diarrhea and still vomiting white foamy mucus. Forced the pepcid down and some chicken broth. She is still not herself.

OKay thanks

I think that it is time she be examined

They can give her fluids and anti-vomit meds

Should also x-ray or ultrasound the abdomen

Can you take her in?
Sorry

Paul
