Customer Question

My golden is not quite 8 and stop eating about 3 weeks ago. Spent 457 at vet to find her bloodwork, pancreatic test, xrays all negative. Blood and organs good. He gave her a few shots and 48 hour fast and she ate great after fast for 3 days then back to not eating for last few days. Now she seems to have appetite but throws it up every time she eats anything.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
What shots was she given and how long ago was that?
What treatments is she on at the moment?
Can she keep any water down?
How long after eating is she bringing food back up?
What are you feeding?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
CL CBC, CL Profile Diagnostic, CL Pancreatic Lipase CPL, Metronidazole 250mg
Ciproflaxacin 50mg, CR X-ray PLN FM, CI Naxcel - large, CI Cerenia > 40 lbs. This is everything on the VEt receipt. Yes she is drinking water and keep it down, when she does show appetite which was twice in past week I fed her chicken breast and her Purina Pro Plan dog food in her bowl. She threw them both back up within 2 hours. I gave her pepto bismal caplets yesterday via greenies pill pockets and she threw them up before they were dissolved.

Thank you,
When did she receive the Cerenia injection?
Did her vet send home any oral anti-vomiting medication to continue (as there are none in your list)?
Did she have a fever when she was examined?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
she finished the medicine. She had a very slight fever.

Thank you again,
Now I appreciate she has finished the medication (though if she still is off her food, then the problem has not been addressed), but did she have anything else to reduce nausea besides that one 24 hours Cerenia injection?
