Q. My dog is 2yrs old and has diaherra and started vomiting

Answered By

A. If it has been going on for more than 24 hours or has been excessively vomiting in less time than that, if the dog is lethargic, or vomiting blood then arrange to see a vet as soon as possible. It may be a touch of gastroenteritis. Dehydration would be a main concern if it has been going on for sometime. Have you tried starving the dog for 12 hours and then gradually reintroducing food? If you are concerned then contact your emergency vet.
