Customer Question

Moly has been sick this morning. I have attached photos she just seems to have been sick.As soon as she was sick she was much brighter and waggy tailed. She then went and was very keen to eat her Normal dry food.The sick was very muscousy with some chicken in it I think.I take it as she was much brighter something just upset her tummy and she felt better when she got it off her tummy?

Hello and thank you for your question about Moly.Bless her!Do you know of anything different she may have eaten?Are her gums pink and wet?Does she have a good appetite and is she happy to eat and drink as normal?
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 11 days ago.

Hi there, how is Moly getting on now?

Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 11 days ago.

I do hope she has stopped vomiting and is back to normal.

A short vomiting episode can have many causes including an abrupt diet change, inflammation of the gut, parasites, toxin ingestion, pancreatitis etc.

If she is energetic, has pink and wet gums and is back to eating as normal, she is likely well on the mend.

I think my niece gave her some Macdonald’s chicken nuggets that’s the only thing I can think of that she had she wouldn’t normally have

It was given by accident

Ah ok, this may well have caused a reaction as they ate quite greasy / salty. If that was the case, we'd expect her to improve rapidly.
