Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Has he been eating since the vomiting started last week?
2) Any change in food? new treats? human food? bones?
3) Has he eaten from the trash?
4) When was the last time a fecal exam was performed on him?
5) When was the last time that he has blood work performed?
6) How are his stools despite the blood? If they're soft, how long have they been soft?
