Q. My dog is an outside pet and I am thinking he was bitten by a raccoon. He has started acting weird and throwing up foam what do I need to do?

Answered By

A. It could be so many possible things. I would recommend seeing a vet. Any time your dog is acting weird could mean so many things and is a major sign of illness since our dogs try their best not to show any signs that something is wrong. Make sure since your dog is outdoors only that he's on the best flea/heartworm/intestinal parasite preventative.
