This is an urgent health issue if the eyes, skin or gums are looking yellow. IMMEDIATELY take your pet for emergency veterinary care. The yellowing is possibly a sign known as jaundice and it is due to a by-product of the liver.
There are many things that can cause sudden liver disease, like antifreeze poisoning/toxicities, organ failure, and others. Often times they have to do very aggressive treatment of a pet with liver disease and sometimes even place a feeding tube to help keep up nutrients. Liver disease can be fatal.
If the veterinarian finds that jaundice is not present than another health issue may be causing a problem with your pet. With a diagnosis the treatment can be started.
