Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell- Nice to meet you. I am sorry that you are having trouble with your pet; I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you.

Please let me know when you are ready to begin.

Good morning. How many times has Biskit vomited? Will he eat and drink? How long has he been sick?

My concern here is that the signs are persisting. This means that there are a lot more differentials and, based on his age, more of them are serious. It may be simple gastritis. But pancreatitis, peritonitis, gall bladder, liver/kidney problems, IBD, and neoplasia, along with metabolic diseases, all have to be considered. I would recommend taking her in for an examination, blood and urine testing, and abdominal x-rays to be on the safe side.

I am so sorry to have to recommend this :(

I hope that you are comfortable with my recommendations. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you, ***** ***** taking him to our vet in the Am

You are so very welcome.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any more questions regarding this problem or any future concerns.

I am here to help!
