Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
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.
1) What breed of dog was Molly?2) Had she had any bloodwork prior to this?3) Had there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?4) Was she still eating and drinking despite vomiting?
Paper towels can certainly cause a GI upset and if she was already suffering from mild kidney compromise the vomiting may have pushed her in to complete kidney failure. It's also possible that her kidneys may have been failing and the vomiting occurred secondarily. If Molly's body is still available, your vet can perform a necropsy to be sure that a gastric blockage was not part of the reason that Molly passed.
