Q. Boston terrier is throwing up all day...his gums are pick he still is very active. What do I look for. Don't have money to take him to the vet clinic

A. He , might have eaten something spoiled that is causing this. Withhold food for 12 hours then offer him boiled boneless chicken and rice every 6 hours in small portions. If he is eating and not vomiting, continue with this diet for 2 days.

After 2 days, you can put him back gradually on his normal food.



If he continues vomiting or is not eating, take him to the vet to get treatment.
