Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that your pup was ill last night and also very sorry for the delay. If you still need help, please let me know. Based on your description, my initial suggestion is to take Lily to an emergency hospital ASAP. What you are describing is something that merits an exam by a veterinarian ASAP as it could be a life threatening situation. If you'd like to continue chatting, I'd be happy to. If you no longer need any assistance, please let us know so that we can alert customer service.Thanks~Dr. Sara
