Exclamation Dog emergency - vomited and cant walk

I have a two year old Labrador, weighing 32-34 kilos and in good health. A few hours ago, after his evening meal, he vomited thrice, throwing up his entire food and the last time some green colored vomit. After this, he suddenly has been unable to walk - problem seems to be in his left back foot. Are the two events correlated? Could this be because of catching a cold (it is winter in Delhi and he was bathed on Sunday while we were out, unfortunately in cold water)? Very worried since he just cant walk even after trying. Any inputs would be appreciated. Thanks

You really need to go see a vet soon. This does not sound right. The vomitting and not being mobile sounds suspicous. Do you have vets close by?

any form of lameness would concern me i agree with benmax about try and get him to a vet quickly. What do you feed him out of curiosity.

Sorry the others are right. Call your vet now and take your baby in

Thanks all. This is worrying. Its 2 am currently and no vet would be available. But will certainly take him first thing in the morning to the vet. He is thankfully sleeping soundly and I am watching over him.

I feed him chicken liver, rice cooked with some vegetables in the morning and Royal Canine in the evening together with rice, some curd/yoghurt. He is a great, non-fussy eater. However, just yesterday shifted from Royal Canine Maxi Junior to Royal Canine Adult. Not sure if this might be the problem since my second one, a basset hound, who eats the same food, has been fine.

It does seem strange that he would be vomitting and coming up lame in only one foot at the same time. Hopefully it's just a very strange coincidence. Keep an eye on your dog overnight until you can get to the vet. It's a fairly good sign that he's sleeping soundly...and not restless or showing irregular breathing/panting, I assume? I can't think of what else you could do at this point other than watch, keep him comfortable, and perhaps withold food (but not water) until the vet has a chance to examine him. Has he pooped since he vomitted?

I, too, would suggest that you see the vet as soon as you can, however, the two events may not be related... He may have hurt his foot otherwise, not food related.
I would also recommend that you look at the food section on this website, there is some great advise and while I understand that you may not have access to ALL the brands, you should be able to get something better than Royal Canine.
Also, was the food switch gradual or sudden?? If it was sudden, that would explain why he did not digest it well, dogs do not take change in food easy, you may expect some digestion issues, especially if the change was from one day to another, and not over a couple of weeks.
Please keep us posted and good luck!

I hope you've been able to get your dog in to see the vet. Bloat or an obstruction can cause vomiting and be painful enough to keep a dog off his feet.

for it being nothing that serious and for a quick recovery! Please keep us posted on your dog's progress, nirajvirma!
