Can you tell me please if the dog eats any non food items such as rawhides, bones, toys, greenies, etc?Could the dog have gotten into any garbage or a toxin? Does the dog eat any human food and if so what?

He sometimes gets into things we dont see but i dont think so today he was in kennell with just a blanket and water untill i got home from work and we only feed him puppy chow and dog treats
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Gums are pink like normal
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Oh he did drink out of the toilet but only a couple of licks before i stopped him
Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 3 years ago
thank you , it may be a virus or it could be something he ate.What I would do is fast him for 24 hours then start a bland diet of boiled chicken (no fat, grease, skin) and see how he does with that. The fasting and the bland diet will give his intestinal tract the time it needs to become less inflamed

I will do that thank you
Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 3 years ago
then you can start his normal dog food again. Watch for signs of more vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, sudden lack of appetite as this is a sign of obstruction of the bowel

Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 3 years ago
If there is an obstruction then surgery would be needed
Ask Your Own Dog Question
Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 3 years ago
Obstructions come from a dog eating something that is not food.

I am going to direct you to a site that will tell you how to take vital signs such as temperature, capillary refill time, gum color and heart beat . This way you will know if something becomes an emergency

Pooped whn we went outside earlier and that seemed normal no more vomiting and the only noticeable thing is he seems to have no energy
Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 3 years ago
okay it could be the vomiting took a lot out of him, make sure he continues to drink water or lick ice cubes. If possible add a little children's pedialyte to the water to keep up the electrolytes
