My little Bella is six months old and has not been acting like herself since yesterday morning. She has been refusing to eat or drink. She is losing weight, she is vomiting a yellow green mucusy substance, she is extremely lethargic and weak, and she is shaking. Her temp is fine and has no discharge on her eyes. she isnt going to the bathroom as she has not been consuming food or liquids. I have been trying to get water in her system via dropper and also bought some liquid food from the vet. The vet said they can't figure out what's wrong with her. I'm so scared. If anyone has any idea what could be wrong please let me know. I can't bear the thought of her being this sick and not being able to help her.

The yellow green substance is bile from not eating.  As for her not eating or drinking, in a Pug or any animal that is them telling you that something isn't right.  Did you take her into the Vet and they examined her? Did they do any blood work? Tell you what to watch for? What did she eat last? Is there foam in her vomit? What brand or what food are you trying to feed her? Is she a fussy eater?

This is not good.  The vet has no idea whats wrong????  Not good.  Find another vet STAT!  I'm going to send out some messages to some folks on here and see if this sounds like anything they are familiar with.  But either way you have no time to waste get to another vet STAT!!!!
Thanks for the help. My husband was able to get ahold of our vet friend. Turns out she got into something...still don't know what...but she is doing a little better now and is drinking water atleast. Our friend said to keep an eye on her and if she doesn't continue to improve to bring her in. I'm just thankful we know a vet that will make free housecalls for us.
Thats encouraging.  Glad to hear that  she is somewhat better and drinking.  Please keep me informed.  It just sounded so dire I was freaking out for you.

When my pug Tifa was younger she would eat just about everything she seen on the ground. Even a Bee once and her face swelled up. One day i let her out and not 5 minutes later i went to check on her and found her laying down  on the ground with Foam at her mouth and poop all around her. Scared me to death. I picked her up and she was very cold so i wrapped her up in a towel and called the vet.

 

Im about 5 minutes away so took her in to be seen and they did blood work. Told me she might have a stint and if not fixed right away she could die. Very expensive surgery. I was terrified.

 

To make a long story short. I went over and over that day and could only remember that she had a hold of my husbands ciggarettes a day before this happened. I think she ate some  and thats what made her very ill. If it wasnt for me getting her to the vet right away she would not be here today.

Please Have Blood work done for her. And my prayers are with you hun.. I dont know what i would do if Tifa wasnt here today.

 

 

Bella is doing well today. Back to eating and playing. She is still a little more tired than usual but overall she is much much better. Thank you all for your support comments and prayers.
I would still have her checked out by another vet soon. Also try to get recommendations and get a new vet. Sounds like she may have had an obstruction and should have been properly evaluated immediately by someone who would have x-rayed her to see if she had some type of blockage in her intestines. It is disturbing that the vet you originally took her to could not figure out what was going on. Good luck and I'm glad to hear that Bella is better!

So glad to read that she is doing better. I live in Ky and it could have been the cigs. When dry tobacco mixes with dew, sweat or any other wet substance like saliva it absorbs directly into the blood stream. Our hospital emergency rooms stay full during damp weather if people are in the tobacco fields from tobacco poisioning--- excessive vomiting, nausea, headache- violently ill.

 

I'm so glad to hear that it sounds like she is doing better - please keep us posted on her progress
