I have one labrador retriever,she stopped eating and started vomiting, help?

I have one black female labrador retriever (age 6). She stopped eating and started vomiting alongwith loose motion on tuesday, 19th july. The next day, she was taken to veterinary doctor and she started receiving treatment for parvo disease. But today, monday july 25th, the condition is almost the same with least improvement if any. So I am literally frustrated now as for what to do to save her life. Please provide me with suggestions. Thank you. I am adding the symptoms she is showing. 1. Very much lethargic. 2. Vomiting after drinking water ( the colour is white, looks foamy, but today the colour turned yellow); Very low quantity of liquid faecal matter without any foul smell. 3. Swelling of her belly, as if she is full term pregnant. 4. sometimes dry vomiting with weird sound. 5. Very very weak. Another information - She gave cesarean birth to four pups in last november followed by hysterectomy on the same day. PLEASE HELP ME TO SAVE HER LIFE. SHE MATTERS A LOTTT TO ME. I AM ALL EARS FOR YOUR ADVICE. THANK YOU.

Look's like some kind of stomach infection to me. something similar happened to my dog wen she was about 5-6 months old. she had a really tough treatment with drips in her 2 times a day for whole week with no water at all. try a different vet. my vet said it's a rare kind of infection usually common to North India..

have a CBC (blood test ) and urine test done. Looks to me like a failing organ..liver i suspect. if possible get Ultrasound done and have couple of opinions on the report. Try having liver function test also done.

PS :this is just an assumption. I am no vet but have ample experience.

Thank you very much Michelle's Kennel, Hema and DoggiesDude (Anil) for responding. Michelle's Kennel, I am from north kolkata and just consulted Dr. Swapan Ghosh who told it is 'Bloat' Disease. I have decided to consult A few top of the rank experienced veterinary surgeons in kolkata. Keeping my fingers crossed with hope of revival of my sweet cuddly Lucy, my daughter :).. God bless you all..

i do not think its Bloat as it does not carry for so long. It starts and ends within 4- hr normally. But a personal check up can better diagnose it than we virtually assuming things. Hope she recovers fast.

BTW take all medications, test report in writing from the vet as it will he helpful if you need second opinion. DO NOT TAKE IT VERBALLY or ITS SAFE WITH US ..Some vet say that.

Yeah, I have decided to visit moitri. I still remember the day they helped me for a stray pup having severe mange a few years back. And yes anil, both X-ray and USG were done. But Dr. ghosh looked confused seeing the images. Thank you once again.

Labradors are very prone to bloat. I fear this is what it happeneing. You must get her to the vet as soon as possible as bloat is often fatal!

Call your vet and tell them you are bringing her in ASAP.

LUCY became an angel today. at abt 6:30 in the evening. I am feeling like I have lost myself from myself. May no creature goes through this stage. And also I will continue working to help stray dogs, this is my promise to lucy.

Dad loves you lucy, R.I.P :) Muah..

Sorry to hear about Lucy. Just feel lucky that she came to you to share happiness in whatever time she had with you.
BTW was anything diagnosed by the vet for the reason of such problem?

I consulted many stalwarts in kolkata. And they came up with different ideas. Like one said she got bad kidneys, which is evident from her BUN/creatinine report. Another one said she had issues in her G.I tract seeing her x-ray and ultrasound report. My mom was alongwith lucy while she died. Mom said lucy in end stage showed signs of congestive heart failure.

I think she suffered from multiple organ failure.

ahhh Creat was really high than the normal value of 1.4 But the main culprit is basically Phosphorous. That level needs to be checked. There are dogs which lives with BUN more than 200. That is why blood test is suggested every 3-4 months. But here we hardly do it.
Feel so sorry that this thing.

Creat must be 1.6 16 seems way too high for me..not seen/heard a dog with that value.
