• Hi- my lab collie- Rona has been acting weird. she is usually highly food motivated and the past two mornings she hasn't wanted to eat her food. she did puke early early Monday morning but she did eat her dinner, just very slowly. Also she has been sneezing and this morning I noticed when she was sniffing or itching herself she was almost wheezing. Please let me know what I should do.

    Hi Tracey,
    I recommend that you take Rona into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. The not eating along with vomiting and sneezing is concerning. There can be a few different causes for these symptoms including infection, intestinal parasites, or a more serious underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause after they have examined her. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause of her symptoms.
