Dog ate chocolate?

ask a vet

Very sick dog.

Species: Dog
Breed: Basset hound and Nor
Age: 5-8 years
My dog can't poop and won't eat. He also has puss-like infection coming from his eyes. I have tried giving him mineral oil but it seems to do no help. Can you please tell me what is wrong with my dog?


Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Your dog desperately needs to see a vet. If you can't because of finances, then you may get some help from one of the resources on this page:

There really isn't a home remedy for these problems as he sounds very sick. Hopefully he will see the vet today!
