    MY dog won't eat or drink

    The past 2 days my dog won't eat or drink water and is throwing up every once in a while.

    He will drink some water then throw it up.

    I gave him peptobismol and liquid tylenol.

    And hes like making moans and just laying there sleeping.

    Any advice on why this is happening and what I could do?

    I already used google for the past 1 hour.

    Thanks.

    Edit: It's a chihuahua/pomerian mix mostly chihuahua

    Get off the damn internet and get your dog to a vet.
    First off not eating and drinking is a SERIOUS thing and then you go and give tylenol to the dog...which is TOXIC to animals. You need to get him to a vet RIGHT NOW.
    NOW, before he dies.

    My uncles dog had the same thing and I guess it got transfered to my dog.

    He did the same aswell and his dog is doing fine

    You don't understand Dustin. Whether or not what made him ill in the first place is dangerous or whether your uncle's dog "transferred" it to him, you have given him a human medicine that causes ACUTE LIVER FAILURE in dogs...not only that but combined it with another medicine that is a saliclylate. Your dog could be in serious danger and you want to argue about it with me?
    If you care at all about your dog you would get him to a vet.
    If your uncle gave tylenol to his dog too, then you are both idiots.

    It is dangerous to medicate your dog without checking with a vet first.

    Damn, I was hoping it was a much larger dog...the dosage wouldn't have to be so little to cause so much damage. Let's hope he's off to the vet.

    Tylenol can KILL your dog. It usually kills them slowly, within a few days. It destroys the liver. Get that dog to a Vet, immediately.

    What Cracker said.

    I find it odd that the OP said they googled for an hour but didn't think twice about giving tylenol (btw, not great for human livers either).
