Q. My puppy keeps whimpering in pain. She is drinking water. But has been sick after having chicken and rice. What can I do

Answered By

A. There is probably some internal problem in her gastrointestinal tract causing this. It might also be a bone or other foreign body she ingested. other possible causes are a severe infection, poison or pancreatitis.

If you have tried chicken and rice without success it is time to take her to the vet in order to get medical treatment for the vomiting and whatever is causing it.
