    Question: My dog has vomitted 5-6 times over a period of approximately 3 hours. The most recent few, seem to have some blood content. We had earlier spilled glycol anti-freeze in the driveway which seemed to soak completely in the ground, leaving a residue ontop of the snow. We are not sure if she has licked the snow and if so would this cause bleeding and vomitting.
    She had eaten dinner 3 hours before the vomitting occured which consisted of turkey table scraps mixed with kibble.
    This is totally out of character with our dog, please advise if possible.

    Due to the highly toxic nature of even a small amount of antifreeze, I would rush her to your vet and let him know that she may have licked some snow with antifreeze. It is also certainly possible that she vomited from the turkey table scraps (especially if there was any skin, or dark meat), and the frequency of the vomiting caused stomach irritation with resultant blood. In either case, a trip to your local vet today is warranted.
