This question for our Pet Doc comes from the concerned owner of Missy, an 11 year old Staffy.
Dog Vomiting and Diarrhea – What Should I Do?
Last night Missy threw up her dinner and had runny poo (diarrhea). My daughter fed her her normal dinner of rice, noodles, and vegetables, but added her own (my daughter’s) left over porridge, which had brown and white sugar and milk in it.
Should I take Missy to the vet? She is very slow in her movements – getting up, walking, etc. I am very worried and love her so much!
The dog vomiting and diarrhea started last night, around 8 hours ago in the early hours. Since then, she has stopped vomiting and pooping, but she doesn’t want to drink anything, and is simply laying out in the sun.

Thanks for the question. If Missy is not eating, lethargic, and you are concerned, then you need to take her to your local veterinarian. You will both feel better.
