is there any vomiting?

He vomitted once

is he still eating?

He isnt eating as much but tries

being a schnorkie I would worry about pancreatitis. that can cause vomiting and diarrhea.


Okay do you advise me to take him in an animal hospital? I attempted to take him to his usual vet but they are fully booked

because it has been a few days and not getting any better. I would take him in and get a CPL test ran. that will check for pancreatitis. if the vet does not have CPL. you can get blood work that will indicate if pancreatitis could be possible.

Okay thank you. Ill find somewhere to take him.

I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you

you are very welcome
