Customer Question
Hello. My dog is...

Hello. My dog is 11 yrs old unspayed. She's been having some stomach issues on and off lately. Tonight she threw up multiple times. Looks mostly undigested. She then began drooling and walking strangely. She is alert and responds. She is currently laying down.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

She has a history of false pregnancies that cause her to lactate. It appears she recently had one. When she does she often drinks the milk which she has been doing a lot lately.

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

When was her most recent heat cycle?
