My dog's name is Magic (a Pomeranian). She's about 13 years old now. She went through emergency surgery for pyometra (a uterine infection) 3 days ago (Wednesday, Jan. 29th, 2014) and ever since then, she hasn't eaten anything.

Just about an hour ago, she threw up greenish fluid and start frothing.

Should I be worried? What do I do?

    I am not sure what that surgery is for, but this sounds a lot like you need to go straight to your vet.

    Seconded. This requires immediate vet notification.

  • Thank you for your concern. I did call my vet and she asked me to give her homeopathy which puts Magic to sleep so we're hoping she'll sleep through the night. Commented Jan 31, 2014 at 20:29

    Please try to avoid using the term "put to sleep" when referring to a dog taking nap, for the obvious implications. :-)

  • Note that a vet prescribing homeopathic remedies is probably treating the pet owner's stress, not the pet ... pets don't respond to the placebo effect. You may want to challenge this and/or seek a second opinion. (I'm not opposed to all alternative medical treatments, but homeopathy is placebo by definition)
