I think my dog is going to die tonight if we dont get her to a vet =(

All day long my dog has not acted right. She has been hiding and just laying around. Well tonight has been no different but just a few minutes ago she walked into the hallway and was gagging and puked. She then immediately went outside. I went to clean up the puke (first time she has puked all day) and there are several spots of bright red blood in it, and the rest is a brownish watery color (no dog food but she hasnt really ate today). I think we should take her to the emergency vet but I can not get her to come inside. =( Does anyone know what could be wrong? Are there any illnesses that dogs typically puke blood? I really hope she doesnt die outside tonight. I have always heard animals go and hide when they know they are dying.

My dog hacks and pukes all the time but never blood. She could be going outside to eat the grass...my dog does this when she is hacking. Sorry i dont have a better answer. Hope she gets better soon.


She is not eating grass. She keeps laying down in places but runs when I get anywhere close to her. I have over 3 acres and she has greyhound in her so there is no catching her if she dont want to be caught.

Did she eat an object like a sock, toy or ball? I would try and get her to a vet instead of being in cafemom..


I can find her but cant catch her. I have over 3 acres of woods that she has free run through. I dont think she ate anything. SHe is not known to.

You really need to get her to the vet. She may have ingested something and have a blockage. She could have a colon issue. She may have gotten into something toxic or it may just be a nasty virus. But you won't know if she isn't seen. Enlist a neighbor to help? I hope you can get her to a vet.

She is 6 years old. She does only have half a stomach and a partical colon but does not normally puke. Diarrhea normallly yes. They said she would probably only live less than a year originally but like I said she is 6 almost 7. All these post saying parvo are scaring me not only for her but I have another dog that is 4years old. He is acting fine though.

I have treats and her bed on the back porch hoping I can trap her. That is my best bet. I have over 3 acres and she has greyhound in her so unless I got a crap load of people we still wouldnt be able to trap her and she will bite strangers.

I don't think its parvo.. you might be right about her just has had enough. I would really try to find her...

Ok, good. This sounded similar to my dog, who ended up having a deadly uterine infection.
The blood is concerning. you should get her in. Can you bribe her with a treat or favorite toy to get ahold of her?
Just a thought...it works for mine when she tries to run. I hope everything works out.
