I've been up most of the night with Sterling, yesterday he had some sort of asthma attack that lasted about 20-40 minutes and since then he will drink water and then puke it up. He ate dinner fine last night and that stayed down but he will go over to the water bowl take a drink and within just a few minutes he just spits it up, it's like his stomach turns and up it comes. I've been watching his intake of water but it doesn't seem to matter if it's a small amount or a large amount, up it comes. What is wrong??? HELP PLEASE!

Hi, it's nice to see you back. I've been wondering how you were doing.
I'm sorry Sterling isn't feeling well. It sounds like you really need to take him in to the vet. If he can't keep water down, he'll dehydrate quickly. He may only have a virus, but the vet can determine that and hopefully give him something to settle his tummy. The hacking/coughing episode may be also part of a virus but the vet needs to look into that as well. Please keep us updated on how he's doing.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. -- Author Unknown

I agree, he definitely needs to be seen by a vet! Honestly, if he was that bad that he needed oxygen, he probably needed to be seen at that time. I would not be self treating like that again as it could have disastrous results.
Hopefully it is just a simple thing ... please keep us posted.
