Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question
Sorry to hear about Ella .
is she producing and feces ?
Is she capable of holding any waters at all ?
Does she have the tendency to play with toys and tear them up or eat out of the bin ?
She has been produces faeces yes... she was sick three times. Twice food once water..she hasnt had any water since
Yeah she does tear up toys. Although i havnt seen her do it recently
thank you for you response.
Well we are faced with several possibilities here:
1. Ella has eaten something she shouldn't have , a toy , piece of clothing or anything other which might cause a blockage in her digestive tract . as a result she can not pass the food down (or water for that matter) and keeps on vomiting
Im concermed about her refusing water.. how long before it is worrying as to dehydration
2. She might have a very bad case of upset tummy , this could cause her to vomit food and water as well - and feel very sorry for herself.
You are right to be concerned - dogs which keep on vomiting fluids and not being able to take any in can get dehydrated very quickly - especially in a young age.
So this is what needs to be done :
She is normally a really bouncy puppy so excited to see us... she hasnt left my side all night and when my bf got up she hardly moved to see him
Ella must make her way to her vet's in order to do the following - 1. a mild blood test to check for her level of hydration and if need be receive some fluids ..2. preform an abdominal Xray and see if we have anything stuck somewhere down the line which needs resolving .
By far the most important thing right now is to make sure she does not become dehydrated
I would not dwell on it , as you mentioned is has been going on since yesterday
This is probably going to sound daft. But who do i ring when vets are closed. She is our first pet that has needed vets like this so not sure
