Willows acting very strange!! :(

Discussion in 'Dog Chat' started by Deleted member 24724, Aug 18, 2009.


  1. I went downstairs before and Willow (2yr old Irish Setter) was lying down on the decking. I aproached her, and normally at this point, she rushes up to see you. I pulled her collar gently, and she got up, but stood very still. Shes frothing at the mouth and keeps looking down at the ground, making strange 'burping' noises, as if shes going to be sick (Which she hasn't) I managed to get her inside, and shes still just standing there, tail between her legs, and a little shaky. I'm really nervous!

    Is something wrong with her? She was fine this morning...

    Get to the vet.
    It could be a wasp sting, poison, or the start of kennel cough.

    I'm no dog expert (but I'm a nurse), but is there any chance she could have eaten something poisonous/nasty? Those are classic symptoms in a human of having eaten something unpleasant. Maybe she's eaten a wasp that has stung her in her mouth? Something like that?

    Yes I would definitely get her to the vet if she was my dog. Have you fed her this morning?

    I'm wondering if it could be bloat?

    Have you brought your pet to the vet already?
