Okay

The small breed dogs can have real problems with their incisors due to early resorption of alveolar bone

There is also some calculus there

The teeth may or may not be causing the problem with the eating but they are likely making her lethargic

However there may also be some GI upset here

My own dogs often will let their food sit for a while and then go back to it and eat it

No vomiting?

How long has she been doing this?

Paul

There has been vomiting and for about two days now
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Okay

Not the teeth

Lets give 1/2 Pepcid AC 10.0 mg twice daily for three days

NO food today

Water, pedialyte and no salt chicken broth are fine

Update me later today

Okay?
