Q. For 3 days my Pitbull has been vomitting alot will not eat or drink and does not want to open her mouth. She is not active and has slime in eyes

Answered By

A. She needs to be seen by a vet ASAP, especially if she has not eaten or drunk in a few days. Dehydration is the big risk here, and even 10% dehydration can kill a dog.
She may have a painful mouth which is why she won't open it, hence why she isn't eating. If she is lethargic this is a sign that her body isn't coping with her current condition. Take her to the vet ASAP.
