Exclamation Budd my 13 yr old gldn rtrvr is very ill

I had to take him to the vet this morning. Budd can not stand up on his own, he is shaking all over, foaming at the mouth. We woke up this morning to find that Budd had pooped on the kitchen floor and had vomited in 4 different rooms, a large volume of vomit to say the least. His eyes dart left and right non-stop. I had to pick him up and take him to the vet immediately before they were even open. The vet did not tell me anything but that she would do a blood test and maybe an x-ray. Anybody, any advice or ideas?

Aw I'm so sorry! I have no idea what could be wrong but I'm praying for you and for Budd. Hugs.

I'm soooo very sorry to hear about Budd.

It could be a number of things.But remember,I'm not a vet.

Could be a seizure.Do you let him out on his own?If so,maybe he got into some poison.Could be some type of infection.Other then that,I have no idea....

How has he been acting lately?

Is he still at the vets office. I hope all works out. A virus may also do this.

Any definite information that the vet has, you should have. I'd ask lots of questions. Poor doggie, I hope it's just temporary.
