My 8 year old female dog vomited 3 times in the past hour.

Customer Question
My 8 year old...

My 8 year old female dog vomited 3 times in the past hour. Very lethargic has taken small sip of water. Won’t get up no labored breathing. Had two bowel moments.

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 important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Fully vaccinated healthy until this evening. Walked 2 miles today

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that your dog is vomiting. Is it possible that she might have ingested something she shouldn't have? Something from the garbage? Something toxic from the garage?

No. Only unknown is wether she ate out of the cat litter box but we don’t think that happened. She is more alert now and walked to the bedroom. Could she have been dehydrated? She has finally drank some water - about a cup and seems more alert. No further emesis. Doesn’t feel abnormally warm.
