Hi, my dog started...

Hi, my dog started vomiting & pooing a lot of saturday. There was no diarrhea & he seems to have emptied himself as he keeps getting down to poo & nothing is coming out now. He is also bringing up yellow bile but this morning there was a little bit of blood in the sick but none since. He is now also wetting himself. He seems very lethargic.

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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

No, I think that's everything

He is moving quite slowly & just seems to sit & stare into the air

Oh boy

I am more worried because of his age

Is he able to keep water down?

Paul

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
he is keeping water down & drinking quite regularly but is refusing to eat

Okay that is good that he is drinking

Lets hope that this is just acute gastritis

Do NOT feed today

Continue with water, pedialyte and no salt chicken broth

Give Zantac at 1.0 mg/kg three times a day

Update me tonight

Okay?
