I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for Rocky.
When did this start?
Has he had any vomiting or diarrhoea?
Are his gums pink and wet?
Is he panting or bloated?
Are they wet to the touch?
I am just typing my reply which will take a few minutes.
No, I cannot make calls.
If you want another vet to call, you can request this and the charge is £16.
I am typing my reply now.
Vomiting and lethargy in a young dog could have a wide range of causes including:
As it has been a couple of days and his gums are dry (which tells us he is dehydrated) it is important he sees a vet.
They will examine him and may run some tests such as a blood test or abdominal scan. so we can determine why he is unwell.
His treatment will depend on what is going on and may include e.g. fluids, antibiotics and anti nausea medicine.
If he has dry gums, he is dehydrated. This is how we assess hydration.
While he is drinking, he is losing more fluids than he is taking in (through things like vomiting, pooing, urinating and sweating).
As he cannot hold down water, this is an emergency and he should be seen tonight.
Do you need the details for your nearest open clinic?
What is your postcode please?
