Losing weight fast, won't eat or drink

my 6 month old pit bull is throwing up every time she eats, now won;t eat (very thin) like starving thin),98 temp, very listless, what is wrong and what can I do?


Answer this question

There is only one thing you can do and that is get to a vet as quickly as you can.

Nobody can tell you what is wrong without a diagnosis however, 98 is below a dogs normal body temperature and any time a dog cannot keep anything down and is listess then you are talking emergency here.

Please phone your vet NOW.

You could call the vet here on the UK one call advice line but quite honestly if you have a pit bull then you can't be UK and so it would be best to get in touch with your emergency veterinary care.
