Default Sugestions on sick dog

Hi there,

I have a 14 year old Beagle, Peanut, and she has been sick and wondering
what the problem might be.

Noticed last night and thought she might have eaten something bad and
wanted to give it 24 hours.

Today it seems she has been sick 3 or 4 times, her poop is runny, she
seems restless. When she has been ill before she will usually curl up
and sleep but today she has just been standing and was not responsive
as usual. I had to push her to go back inside. She did sleep for a litte
earlier but not for long.

She didn't want to eat her food this morning but she did eventually, I
put half her usual amount of this evening and she hasn't touched it. Her
water consumption doesn't appear to have changed.

I know this should be any number of things, but I wont be able to get her
to the vet until the morning so after some ideas or suggestions as to
what it could be and what I might be able to give her to make her feel
comfortable.

Thanks,
Nigel

........Get to the vet with a stool sample in hand. A 14 yr old is an
elderly pup and any sickness should be investigated promptly.

What did she eat? May be foreign body, if she is being sick after
eating something may be blocked somewhere. If it bad food starve her
24hrs and then offer something bland. If that not help take her to
vets. Is she drinking? She can easily get dehydrated so may need to
be admitted for i/v fluids

Just to let everyone know that I fed her some poached chicken yesterday
evening and she kept that down and took a long drink too. There were no
signs of vomit this morning. She seems to be sleeping well now so I
think she is over the worst of it. Thanks for the suggestions.
