Customer Question

dog with poor appetite bringing up yellow bile occasionaly
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Dog
Expert:  nekovet replied 2 years ago.
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How old is your dog?
How long has he had these signs?
How often is he vomiting this bile?
Is it just in the morning or at other times?
Can he keep any water down?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Thank you,

Are those pale gums paler then usual?
Have you seen any black stool? Or are his feces normal and regular?
If we have a sore stomach when you press, is it possible he has eaten something non-edible?
