Hello,

You're through to Dr. Edele, a UK based vet.

I'm unable to take calls right now, however, I'm happy to chat with you through this chat window if that suits you?

How is Molly behaving/feeling in herself?

Could Molly have eaten something she shouldn't have?

When did Molly last eat?

Is Molly able to hold down water?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Sluggish and tail down. Not to my knowledge. Last night at 4pm . And yes she can hold her water

No thank you

Apologies, the website sends requests for a phone call automatically, I can't control that, please ignore them.

Ok, as she's unhappy and continuing to vomit despite not having eaten in almost 24 hours she should go see your vet for a full check-up and feel of her tummy. She likely needs some anti-sickness medicine to make her feel better.

If you're unable to make an appointment for this afternoon, you can withhold food from her until she hasn't vomited for about 3 hours. Then she can be offered a tiny amount of bland food (boiled chicken and rice or scrambled egg (no milk) and sweet potato) and if she can hold that down she can have a little more an hour later. You could also give her some probiotic for her diarrhoea as her gut flora may be a little out of balance. Protexin's Prokolin is a good product for this.
