My small Border Terrier has been sick quite a few times over

Customer Question

My small Border Terrier has been sick quite a few times over the last 24 hours.
Seems better this morning but refusing any food. Is quite a picky eater, what
can I tempt her with. (She is spaded and aged 18 months.) Her character is
normally lively but she has taken to her basket. Am worried in case she has
swaqllowed some of the berries that are now falling from the garden trees. Cannot
see any in the vomit or the watery stools.

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How many hours has it been since the last time she vomited?
2- Any diarrhea?
3- How much does she weigh?
4- What is the name of the berry she could have eaten?
5- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pale or pink?

There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,
