Customer Question


I have a 15mth female lurcher cross. She started vomiting around 12noon yesterday. Firstly her morning meal and then about 2 hrs later vomited again - this time just mucus. She was sick again about 5pm but still wanted to go for her evening walk - she was okay, but did stop to retch again with a small amount of bile?
However, around 7pm she was sick again but this time brought up a couple of pinky fleshy bits in her mucus. She has had no diarrhoea and is drinking water, but since then she has been sick 3 times again bringing up these small bits of pinky fleshy pieces?

Your answer was far too late and I have taken my dog to my local vet for treatment. I no longer require any further action
Thank you.
