Customer Question

She is an older dog probably 14
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?
Customer: She is dry heaving
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: Shedoes not cry she eats and drinks and has been acting normal for her age but the dry heaving is starting to concern me now
JA: OK. No obvious pain. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: No she has been otherwise healthy her whole life
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has she had these signs?

Do you think that she is heaving like she wants to vomit? Or is it more a cough?

Any changes to her breathing?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
