Q. My dog won't eat, vomiting blood with bubblesand is drooling. I am currently giving him hydrite. He's not as energetic as before and he's weak and sad

Answered By

A. I recommend getting him in to see your vet right away. Vomiting blood is very concerning, either he has eaten something that physically injured his esophagus or stomach, or something that was very caustic or toxic. Your vet will do an exam, possibly x-rays and labwork and be better able to advise you on treatments based on those results.
