My 10 year old minature dachshund just started not eating, but she still drinks, but a couple of minutes later she throws it back up. She has now started pooping a sloppy wet red liquid. Vets closed until tomorrow, any thoughts?

Sounds like it could be blood. Take her to the vet in the morning.

Sounds like she needs to go the the ER vet ASAP. I wouldn't wait till morning.

I concur...get her to the vet ASAP...My miniature schnauzer had pancreatitis last year...he quit eating, starting vomiting everything, including water...don't take any chances!

She might even have eaten something and has a blockage. Agree - vet ASAP.

I would take her to the best emergency clinic available to you. A Dachshund not eating is alarming enough - and when combined with the other posted symptoms, warrants an immediate vet visit. Please report back - I know way too much about mini Dachshund health and will worry about your pup.

EMERG VET NOW! Don't wait til morning it could be too late! It's never good when there's red in the poop whether liquid or solid, could be blood.

Just noticed this was posted last night, just after midnight.

Any update??????
