JA: How old is Norma?

JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Norma?
Customer: She was vomiting today, she had a BM 3x before noon and what lloked like tissue in her stool. She is a paper, cardboard, tissue addict. She tends to eat it whenever I took her to the vet, not sure how good he is- we are new in town He gave her an IV and told me to give her Peptiol Bismol 3x a day and also sent me home with amoxicillin for her 2x a day Also, she refues to eat and drink

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

The shot was likely for nausea and to reduce the instance of vomiting. How can I best help you today since the vomiting appears to have stopped?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Well, it's been an hour and a half since she last vomited. She is pacing and cant get comfortable
... What does dark brown liquid vomit mean?

There can be a variety of causes for pigmentation of vomit. Typically the digestive fluids in the stomach are to blame, mixed with ingesta (contents of the stomach) which may be influenced by food, dirt, etc. that a dog has consumed. Sometimes blood is also the source of pigmentation though it usually takes on a red appearance.
