sick dog
my 3yr old payment special is sick - not eating at all, drinking a little water, vomiting watery saliva, ears back, very runny redish stools. New puppy on the scene - possily disrupted her routine. She is not spayed. She and puppy played well together before but she has no energy now nor inclination to play. What do I do??? Please help!

I hope by this time you have taken your dog to the vet and that she's better already. It is probably viral gastroenteritis developing, and she will need veterinary help. Usually these conditions progress rapidly, so I am sure that by this time it would have played out.
