Q. My dog vomited, was panting, and his pads are cool. He is drinking lots of water. What could this be?

A. It could be many things and without examination it is impossible to say. It could be that he has just picked up a bit of a stomach bug but it could also be something much more serious. You should have him examined by your vet as soon as possible. If he is extremely lethargic and vomited many times then you should see your emergency vet if your usual vet is currently closed.
