Dog is throwing up
Hi there, I'm new to the forums.
My three-year-old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, named Ivy, has apparently been throwing up today.
My mom first discovered it when I was at work, she had thrown up a brown liquid, and her poops were kind of gloopy when Mom took her out. Turns out, that while she was in my room after I had left for work, she had thrown up all her breakfast.
According to mom, she's been fine. And when my sister and brother-in-law came over, she was right as rain, going berzerk like she always does when they come over. It was the same when I came home from work, happy happy happy girl.
She just threw up again about an hour ago, more brown liquid, and she's crawled up into a chair, curled up and is sleeping. She seems kind of tired now. I got some water in her, and it stayed down. She seems pretty alert, sits straight up when I get up off the couch, follows me around when I walk into another room.
I live in a small rural area, the closest vet is not open on weekends. I know the ideal thing would be to take her to the vet immediately, but that is simply not feasible, given where I live and distance/gas prices/etc.
Is there anything I can do for her myself until tomorrow when I can get her in?
I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you.
