Customer Question
2 days ago our 10...
2 days ago our 10 yr old male lab threw up all his morning food right before dinner. Stool amounts may have been a little smaller in amount than usual. He pooped in house at some point last night. Today he has been extremely lethargic, barely moving. He isn’t interested in food, but has drank some water. We tried to go to get, but too much snow to get out of neighborhood. What can we do?

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?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
There have been no changes. There is no indication that he got into anything, although it is always possible. Since I first asked the question, he seemed to be feeling a little better, and appeared hungry. He ate a little white rice and chicken broth. About an hour later he scarfed down about a cup of white rice and chicken broth. Not immediately, but maybe 45 minutes later he diarrhea and then vomited up the rice and yellow bile.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I made a mistake about the diarrhea. It was actually firm, but Chase started pooping inside, finished outside, and came back in and vomited the rice and yellow bile.
