    UnhappySimba is ill

    Simba is sick since 3 days he is not eating anything,for the first two days he used to drink some water and eat atleast very little food once a day and since today morning he is not eating anything ,its almost 18hrs that he dint eat not drink anything.He is vomiting some dark yellow stuff for every half and hour. Had been taking him to vet daily since three days but i see no improvement with him,he is getting weaker day by day he could hardly move from one place to other after vomiting.
    The vet says that it is a viral infection but m really getting scared looking at his state ,he has become very very weak and he is also vomiting the medicine which the vet asked me to give.
    Did anything like this happened with anyone's dog ,like vomiting yellow stuff along with some lather.he hadn't ate anything since a very long time and from where is all the stuff coming from his stomatch,is there any danger that i really need to worry about!

    Get your dog to another vet, and do it immediately. Something is very wrong.

    An animal that is not eating, and a Dr. that is blaming a virus does not sit well with me. The yellow vomit is probably bile, probably because the stomach is empty of food.

    Your dog is seriously ill. You need to get him to a good vet. How old is this dog? The picture looks like a pup.

    Took simba to the vet,injected 250ml of saline and few injections.He asked me to get him again tom morning so that if he doesnt eat anything tonight he will put the saline again.
    Simba's condition seems to be little better now(he has stopped vomiting and doesnt look as weak as before) and he even drank some water after coming back,dint try with the food though.

    Glad you got him to someone else. Did either vet suggest trying another food, or a fresh bag of the same food. Could the food you have for him be spoiled?

    Glad he is feeling a little better. I agree with Hershey'ks dad with the food.

    Vamsi...sorry I just read this. My mother's Miniature Schnauser has had a bad go of it for about 4 months now. Her dog has canine diabetes. It took a long time to diagnose and then has taken a long time to get the right meds..but he is doing great so far. He is eating a medical diet and is not allowed ANYTHING extra...not even rawhide. The first vet totally missed this and even though the 2nd vet did a complete workup...he missed it until she brought him in again when he wasn't eating, etc. Good luck to you and I'm so glad to hear you contacted a 2nd vet.
