I have a lab/eskimo spitz mix who's 4-5 months old. She's not eaten anything since Friday, and I'm getting worried. She's not acting like herself either. She's usually hyper and playful to the point of being annoying, but today she's listless and wanders around aimlessly. She drank a lot of water while I was outside, and then she promptly threw it all back up, all clear and foamy.

Any ideas on what's wrong with her and what I can do for her?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Is it really hot there? Oh wait, you're in NC too. My dog was like that a while back. It was like he just had a stomach bug or something. Do you think your pup has eaten any of the forbidden foods?

chocolate
onion
garlic
grapes
raisins

No vets are open today. And no, she doesn't eat anything they're having trouble with. She was perfectly fine until Friday, when I had to leave to go out of town. And she hasn't eaten anything since then as far as I know.

Do you have a vet that you go to? I would take her right away. If she can't keep water down she will get dehydrated very fast.

If you're in Charlotte there's an emergency vet here...

sounds like she might have eaten something that's blocking her intestines (like a plastic bag...) GO TO THE VET.


hope she's ok.

the only weird thing my dog has eaten lately was a dead rat. I couldn't get it away from her at all. I wonder if that's the problem, but I don't know.

There must be an emergency vet somewhere!
