Hi All! I'm happy to become a member of your forum. We have two dogs and hope to get some advise on dog ailments from time to time. Currently one of our dogs, Maya who is part lab part dingo (7 yrs. old) has been throwing up her food and eating soil every opportunity she gets. She is loosing weight and is not as active as she usually is. Her gums seem pale in color. We took her to the vet, he suggested we give her peptal bismal to settle her stomach. This isn't helping. Her nose is wet, and she does't seem to be in any pain. There are no sign of worms. Has anyone had a similar problem. If you have, I would like to here about it and find out how you resolved it. I'll share the info with you as we get it. We are taking her back to the vet in the next day or so.

I'd get a second opinion.

please go see another vet and run blood tests... pale gums are not a good indication. is her urine clear? are her eyes white? all things a vet should ask you and verify.... :pawprint:
