Customer Question
Hi Pearl, my dog...

Hi Pearl, my dog has been eating grass and vommiting, as well as not eating or drinking. She is a little over 1 year old lab and is normally pretty energetic. She has been lathargic and sick acting the last two days. When she walks, she is constantly stretching her himd legs.

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?

Thanks. She had roundworms and was treated on wednesday with a wettable powder that lasted 3 days. It is gone, and i dont see any worms in her stool.

How many times has she vomited?

Is she eating ok?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i can online. She is not eating at all and is drinking very little water. She was eating grass out of the yard and throwing it up. That started yesterday. She threw up 5-6 times yesterday and not at all today.

Has she pooped recently?

What is the wettable powder you used?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
she just went a few hours ago. And the wettable powder was what my vet gave me to use. It did not have a name on the bag

How lethargic is she? Will she get up and walk and play and the sleep or not moving at all?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Very, hardly responsive compared to usual. And will walk but not playful at all.
Dog Veterinarian: Veterinarian101, Dog Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Ok.

I am concerned that she is either dehydrated or very painful. This maybe a reaction to the medication or it could be something else more serious. It is not possible for you to rehydrate such an unwell dog at home or provide any safe pain relieif that you will have at home.

I really think you need to get her to your vet. If they are not open I recommend visiting your ER vet.
