3254. INTERN. A 3-year-old female spayed poodle vomits blood and pass gas

August 29, 2018

Vomited fresh red blood 2 x today. Owner is very worried.
Not eating for 3 days. Diarrhoea for 3 days. Passed lots of smelly gas
Had fed chicken bones 1-2 weeks ago.

X RAY shows no large chicken bones. Stomach and intestines distended with gas.

Acute gastroenteritis
IV drip, antibiotics, multivitamins, anti-diarrhoea one day.
Goes home next day.

Vomiting fresh blood is a serious condition. Most likely, some foreign bodies had irritated the guts leading to vomiting and diarrhoea. The blood test shows normal blood system, liver and kidneys.
