Sick dogs

Hi, someone might be able to help.My neighbour has 2 sick dogs, both are working farm dogs, though not overly used. 1 is a 12 year old blue heeler and the other a 9 year old hunterway they are exibiting symptoms such as vomiting,loss of apetite,unstable on feet, moaning,glassy eyedness, unusually quiet,and general lethargy. Both dogs never seem to be sick at the same time, but both have taken to eating dirt at the cow shed and cow dung.Their diet it is fairly well rounded with dog biscuits and brown bread and boiled potatoes though their meat diet has slipped a little in the last 12 months.Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Dog - vomiting, loss of apetite, unstable on feet, moaning, glassy eyedness

Dear Dubhead,

This sound like a viral infection or stomach infection ESPECIALLY if it has been going on for more than 24-36 hours...and if this is the case it does sound quite serious, possibly life threatening.

You probably need antibiotics or/and a verterinary consult where blood/urine tests must be done.
