Customer Question

My dog (Dalmatian) has over eaten tonight & has been really uncomfortable, restless, crying & pacing. He's 11 years old. He's tried to be sick but not sure if he succeeded. I had a German shepherd die quickly from a twisted gut & know the more severe symptoms which my dog doesn't have.
He's settled down now & is asleep but I'm worried it could get worse again in the night
Can you advise me please

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with 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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Can he keep food or water down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
