I don't know what's wrong with my baby!!!
I noticed yesterday that Kobe kept scratching himself a lot, which started to alarm me. He would even cry a little. I turned him over on his back to inspect him for fleas when I noticed he was very RED and even had welts/swelling!!!! It also seemed that he was cutting himself with his nails, so he had some sores/scabs. I planned to take him this morning, but he wasn't scratching as much and the redness was gone. This afternoon, I noticed he's been acting REALLY strange; just laying around, looking sad, running around in circles like he's lost. Then he started dry heaving and just 5 minutes ago he vomited a yellow, thick liquid. He hasn't eaten and I have not seen him drink any water. Everyday I take him walking also...if that's important...
What could be wrong with him???

It sounds like an allergic reaction to something. I would take him to the vet, ASAP. You don't want him dehydrated.

He could have gotten into some sort of chemicals that someone treated their yard with. It really sounds like he should be seen by a vet. If this odd behavior and vomiting continues, I would suggest the ER tonight.

I would wash him immediately he could have some chemical on his skin and give him some kero syrup and some pepto Bismol. Than I would start getting him eating wet food chicken whatever and give him some water call vet

Can we give our furbabies Pepto Bismol? If so, how much? Once in a while Mr. Darcy will throw up - is fine before and after and it isn't repeated - does this happen to all dogs? I would not give him PB in these instances though.
