Customer Question

My 4 year old lab started hacking about a hr ago. White vomit came up. I let her outside in case she needed to vomit more and she started eating grass, with her head tilted sideways. She keeps scratching at her face. Panting now, and licking her nose n mouth a lot. Will drink water n ate some food. Shes also gassy with gut sounds.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Has her head tilt settled?
Does she seem swollen in her face?
Did all her GI signs settle with the Pepto?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
All her symptoms from last night have stopped. She got up this a.m. ate and pottied, and didnt try to eat anymore grass.
Expert:  Dr. B. replied 2 years ago.
Hi again,
I am glad to hear that she has settled. Since no vet was available to aid you when you posted and you don't need aid at this stage, I will send your question back to customer service.
Take care,
Dr. B.
