    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Dog throwing up, not eating or drinking, and is pooping blood.
    kristy81611 posted:
    My dog has not eaten or drank anything for three days and I just saw her pooping blood. She was throwing up yesterday and the day before, but not today. She's actually moving around more today and looks to be bouncing back, but I just saw the blood and she's definitely not feeling great. It's Easter and the vet is closed. Anyone know what this could be or if I need to take her to the emergency room? I'd do anything to help if she needs it, but an emergency vet is more than I can afford really. Not sure if I can give her something from home.

    If you haven't already, do take your dog to see your veterinarian as soon as possible. It sounds like she is very sick and needs some expert care very soon.
