Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question
Could I ask Pleas has Wellie vomited ?
Is he anywhere painful
So besides acting differently he is fine .
Is he still eating ?
No not eating just lying in his bed looking a bit blank
has he passed urine ?
was it normal as far as you can tell?
Yes it was normal pee
Is he a scavenger ?
Could he been exposed to a chemical of any sorts ?
something placed in the garden ?
Not that I know of
when you look at his gums are they pink ?
Are they moist or dry ?
Is he salivating ?
Sorry for all the questions ' i'm trying better to get the whole picture
Pink gums and wet
Since Wellie is showing general symptoms of Lethargy with nothing focused ' that makes it hard to tell . It could be that he ate something bad and even though he is passing normal feces now , he will later explode in diarrhea and perhaps vomiting . It could be that something is painful , could be a external or an internal organ like the pancreas which is starting to get inflamed and results in great pain which can become worse later . The list goes on and on .
It could even be poisoning (all that must be ruled out) .
can we give him anything to make him sick ?
My advice would be to have him checked out . even a quick Physical exam by your vet would help him determine if internal source of pain exists . I would advice a basic blood test as well ' some might give us a hint in regards XXXXX XXXXX types of poisoning as well as a pancreatic inflammation.
You can not give him anything , simply because you do not know what it is , it could be an object or corrosive material which will cause sever damage if forced back up
OK thank you. Would you advise immediate vet attention ?
We are dealing with a problematic situation - on the one hand it might be nothing but on the other it might be something which needs medical attention / you would not rest easy if you stay at home anyway so my advice is to seek medical attention for Wellie just to rule out anything dangerous
I hope this helped you make up you mind .
If you have any further questions please ask .
OK thankyou we'll call the vet college.
