Q. Lab 12 yr old, vomiting dark brown liquid, black liquid stools not eating, sx x's 2 days. How can I make her comfortable
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Sorry, I don't understand your notation "sx x's". As for the vomiting and diarrhea, the best recommendation I can give you is to seek veterinary care in order to determine what's causing these symptoms. Signs of GI disease that have been going on for 2 days are unlikely to resolve on their own. She may have parasites, may have eaten something that didn't agree with her, or she could have an infection of bacterial or viral origin. Other causes of vomiting and diarrhea include pancreatic disease (pancreatitis), kidney disease, and liver disease. Unfortunately I think this is something that's not going to get better at home, and she needs medical intervention.
