My 2 yr old Yorkie, Maggie, has always vomited after drinking too much water. But here recently she has been vomiting more frequently and seems to be urinating a lot. A month ago I assumed she had a urinary tract infection since she was urinating so much and she had flaky stuff around her vulva. I took her to the vet and the vet put her on UTI meds. Then 2 weeks later she started vomiting and couldn't keep anything down, even water. Then she became so weak she couldn't even walk. So I took her back the vet and the vet seemed to think that maybe the meds were upsetting her stomach and she became dehydrated from the vomiting and gave her a shot for nausea and a camel pack for the dehydration and told me to quit giving her the meds. She only had a few days remaining of the meds anyway. The vet said she didn't have a fever or have any other signs of anything else. 2 weeks later she is doing it again. She vomited 2 huge piles today and is now shaking, panting, and hiding or wanting to be held. I noticed her stomach seems to be larger than normal too. The flakes around her vulva have reappeared as well, although not as bad. I just gave her some honey to help with low blood sugar and I think it has helped with the shaking just a little bit. Is this common in Yorkies? We have another Yorkie who is the same age and we never have any issues with her. Could Maggie have a blockage or kidney issues? She doesn't act like she is in any pain, but on her good days she is very active. Although she does have joint issues so she doesn't jump up or down on anything.
