Customer Question
Josie (dog) escaped from...

Josie (dog) escaped from our yard earlier this evening. When she came home she seemed fine but has started to shake uncontrollably and has vomited. She seems to have a problem standing and is drooling a lot. What should I do - if anything?

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 while she was home but I don't know what she may have eaten while she was loose.

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

Her name is ***** ***** she is a rescue dog. She looks a lot like a slim black lab. She is 12.

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

She has been healthy up until this evening.

I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? Has the vomiting persisted? Any diarrhea?

Josie is doing much better this morning. She did vomit 3 more times during the night. She ate her breakfast this morning and she is no longer trembling. I sat with her all night and did not look at my computer. After waiting for quite some time (maybe an hour) I gave up and just tried to keep her comfortable. I will not be using your services in the future. I was very disappointed not to receive a response. I appreciate you getting back to me..
