1 She ate a very small amount of chilli chicken which the rest of my family had eaten without any ill effects
2 She had been drinking more than usual
3 She seemed fine before I went to bed and I found the diarrhea and water that she had vomited the following morning She vomited 3 times and has not done so again and is urinating normally but I have to carry her out to the
garden and she can walk but not up the couple of steps into the house
4 Her daughter has been eating the same diet
5 She is spayed and she did have a caesarian about 8 years ago
6 she is not on any medications and this just started the night before last
7 She is overweight and does have a lump on her side - she is a wonderful little dog who is normally very greedy and this is the first time she has ever refused food I am afraid that she may have been poisoned
although she was not anywhere without me except for my garden and I have searched there but did not find anything that could have harmed her.
1 This happened overnight - It seems to be partly mental I carried her out to the lawn to urinate and she just stands there and does not make any attempt to come back into the house even though there is a gale here at the moment. When I lift her into the hall she can walk to her bed in the kitchen but just lies there motionless and that is completely out of character - I would describe her as a fun dog who is normally full of life
2 I don't know how much she weighs but she is definately overweight
3 I had noticed that she seemed to be drinking more than usual for a month or two but it did not seem to be excessive. Because she drinks from the same bowl as her daughter I could not be sure exactly how much she was drinking.
4 Because this has been so sudden at first I thought that it was the chilli chicken now I am worried that it may have been a stroke because of her complete change in personality
Thank you so much for your advice It is 10.30 pm here in N Ireland so I will have to wait until tomorrow morning to get her to a vet She is a much loved pet and I am very worried that I might lose her.
