I really need some advise

Okay, so Kohl has been vomiting all day. 4-5 times so far. He's been acting okay, up until about 7:30. He's really whiney, really uncomfortable. He's been laying down on the bed since 9:00 and been really skiddish and trying to burry himself under the blankets, covers or whatever he can. Spastic like.
I called the vet, he said give him pepto for the tummy and ice chips with some gatorade, etc... to keep him hydrated.. but... he's not taking anything. The vet said if he isn't better by morning, or he starts having Diarea to call back. I am just very worried b/c of how skiddish he's acting and burring himself in the covers.. i've never seen that before, and I have no clue if that's just normal or a sign of something very wrong? ANY ADVISE???? I'ms scared for my baby boy! By spastic I mean doing circles and then doing the RLH all over the bed till he can burry himself somewhere....

Kona also just vomited but it was just a few tiny spots of white foam looking stuff. No food or anything in it but a tiny piece of brown leaves. Ug... this is weird... they've not had a food change, they don't eat treats, the same bag of food for 2 weeks.

Were you still camping? Could they have eaten something at the camp site.....fish...dead frog? Sounds like since they are both sick that they must have both gotten into somehing. Cicero was a little sick one day and wouldn't drink water. I finally gave him the flavored Vitaman Water...and he loved it. I know you are worried, but just keep an eye on them and try to get them to drink something if they keep thowing up.

well, we didn't camp. it's been raining on and off all weekend, and we were afraid to have their First experience with camping to be stormy. We did spend alot of time outside today, so they may have ate something (leaves, etc...) but Kohls started this a.m. early before he was ever outside. Kona's I think was leaves he ate, they were brown ones (we have a pile from raking the yard) that's not uncommon for him to eat them and vomit the white foam. but Kohl's started this a.m. early, before ever going outside, so it would have been something from yesterday... I am gonna keep an eye on him tonight, taking him in to the e.r. vet if needed. I will try some flavored vitamins... or the gatorade in the water like the vet said. he just doesn't wanna drink. I gave pepto, which seems to be finally working a bit on him.

He is so young and they can get into anything. When in doubt that young, I would take him in.

you really need to search their area see if you can find any remnints of anythig they may have eaten. Look under beds, blankets do a walk throught the yard. Could they have gotten into any poisons? Snail bat, ant poision, mouse or rat poision that kind of thing? Are you feeding any treats or dog food that has been recalled? That much vomitting is not Ok and especailly on a small dog. Dehydration can be devastaing to them. The fact that the other one is now vomiting is a sighn they both ate something they shouldnt have. What kind of leaves? Lot's of plants are poisious that people dont realize. Wisteria pods for example. At this point what ever it is is in their system but I would definetley take them in first thing in the morn and have the vet put them on IV fluids and talk in person with him. I hope everything works out ok.

Brooke - I know that some people have noticed if their dogs don't get a little bit of food in the later evening that they'll vomit bile type fluids. Could this be the problem? I sure hope everyone is feeling better today.

Definitely sounds like they got into something. With kids and pups you never know what is left lying around by accident. You have a buys house so it's easy for something to slip by you. Thinking of you all and wishing for the best.
