My Boston is almost 4, my boyfriend and I woke up today and found a big thing of throw up on our bedroom floor. Through out the morning he has thrown up at least 5 times. By the 3rd time of him throwing up is was a red liquid with white foam. After this he started pooping on the floor, I then let him outside where he continues to poop and now it is straight diarrhea. I have him in my bathroom now, I have tried to get him to drink some water and he wont. My question is what is causing this, and What can I do to make him better?
Welcome....Red liquid is BLOOD! We have no way of knowing what is causing this...We are not Vets & cannot examine your dog.....What ever it is, it's serious! You need to seek emergency treatment ASAP! Dehydration from all the vomiting & diarrhea is dangerous by itself.....It's possible that this is POISONING......At this rate, he will not make it till morning to see his regular Vet!!! Make the call, now.....Please, let us know what happens......Karla
well the red liquid isnt red red like blood it is like the color of his food. He is now laying in bed asleep. Could it maybe have just been something he had in his system that he needed to get out? He seems fine now.
