I just asked a question about my dog Firecracker & paid $19 but did no

Customer Question

I just asked a question about my dog Firecracker & paid $19 but did not get an answer.
I returned home this evening and it looked like my dog had just thrown-up. I gave him a rawhide
before I left this am but it appears he did not eat it. There was bright red blood drops on his pee
pad and he had a soft dark stool. Within 30 minute he threw up again - no more blood - but his
nose is cold and he appeared ok. He is shaking like he is cold but is otherwise ok. Maintenance was in the apt earlier in the bathroom and he was in his crate in the den - i let him back in his bathroom at
lunch when I came home & left.
Does this sound like poison, should I rush to a vet or just monitor. I just paid with my Visa ending in 3310

Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you.
So, your dog was fine this morning? Does he usually get rawhides? Was this a new batch of rawhides?

Ann - your response did not show until several hours later & I had to take him to an Emergency Clinic. At the hour mark I responded that there had been no response or answer & I had to do something. Perhaps a glitch with this website. It's after midnight and I am finally getting back. By the time I loaded him up to go it had been an hour and ahalf and no response. I'm sorry, I will ask that this not be paid. 3 people said they were responding asap - nothing, you are the only one that finally sent a response but much too late - I spent $300 at the emergency clinic.
