Customer Question
He was fine and...

He was fine and then about an hour ago he started running back and forth and whining. Then he started panting and salivating quite a bit. He has also vomited 4 times and seems weak and cannot hold himself up for very long

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

He’s a half chihuahua and half pomeranian

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Chihuahua eat anything unusual?

No it was pretty compact looking and I’m not sure but he did go out back for about 20 min earlier this evening

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Chihuahua's name?

Rocky

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rocky?

No just that, I’m scared and don’t know what I should d0. He’s not vomiting anymore but he’s just laying there and doesn’t move

He is actually doing a lot better. I think he just ate something outside that upset his stomach
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 3 months ago

I'm glad to hear he's improved. If you need additional support today, let me know.
