Hi Paula,

I am sorry your dog is unwell.

If the faeces are black and there is blood int he vomit then JJ needs to be seen by a vet as soon as possible.

This collection of clinical signs indicates internal bleeding possibly from an ulcerated stomach and/or small intestines.

This is even more important if the tablets he has eaten are non steroidal medications such as ibuprofen or diclofenamic acid. These drugs as well as causing intestinal bleeding will readily cause kidney failure.

There is nothing safe or effective I can advise you to do as far as home care goes as this well require investigation and specific medications which only a vet can prescribe.

I really hope JJ is OK

Good luck and regards

Dan Makin
