Firstly, we're taking her to the vet first thing in the morning. We were going to schedule her on Tuesday because we've found a couple of (what I assume to be) hot spots on her sides, but tonight she's pooped in the basement twice (she has NEVER done that, and it's pretty goopy) and she's thrown up 4 times in the last hour or so.
She's an 8 1/2 month old Border Collie/Basenji mix. Over the last couple of weeks, I started noticing small spots on her side (two of them) where the fur had thinned, and the skin was slightly red. One had a scab. Obviously she's scratching a lot; at the direction of my vet, I've been putting triple antibiotic ointment on them. The first two cleared, up, so I figured a vet visit wasn't needed. We had suspected she had fleas, but we gave her a flea bath. She had already been treated for fleas, so we were wondering how she got them in the first place.)
Over the last week or so, however, new spots appeared, on her other side. Tonight, one of them has gotten slightly hard under the skin, which alarmed us, so we made an appointment. And then she vomited four times. We're kind of panicking at the moment, not gonna lie.
I might add that tonight, for dinner, for the first time ever we gave her canned Mackerel & Pumpkin with her kibble, (Fromm) we we're assuming this is the reason for her suddenly puking. (Although it still doesn't explain the hotspots.)
I'm going out of my mind here, I can't wait to for morning to come, I'm too anxious. Does anyone have any insight?
