So here is the story..The day before yesterday and yesterday my dog has been sick, vomiting, hacking..And then last night I took her outside cause she was getting sick..she saw a skunk, attacked it and was sprayed. I've got her all cleaned up. but now her gums are very pale, pretty much white..I am not sure what this means or what to do. I know what your going to say like "take her to the vet." But we cant afford it since my s.o lost his job... we are very broke. Any advice on what to do or any other signs I should watch for? and please, no rude comments like "if you cant afford a dog, you shouldnt have one"...

I hope you have talked to the vet and taken the dog in by now. That is not a good sign and the dog definitely needs to be seen.
