Dog vomiting

Dog Vomiting
Dogs vomit occasionally. If a dog feels a little queasy, he can voluntarily vomit to relieve the irritation. In fact, occasionally a dog will eat a huge meal, vomit it up, and eat it again. Nobody’s really sure why they do this, but it isn’t something most vets are too
concerned about.

However, vomiting can also be the body’s way of getting rid of something bad. For example, sometimes dogs eat garbage – something they really shouldn’t be eating. Their bodies will then throw up the indigestible stuff they’ve consumed.

If your dog throws up several times, but doesn’t seem ill in any other way, do the following:

– Have him fast for a day
– Make sure he has fresh water
– Give him an ice cube or two every four hours (This may help him not drink so much water that he throws up again)
– After the day of fasting, give him a bland diet of rice and boiled chicken for a day or two

If your dog is still throwing up after his day of fasting, or if his vomit contains blood, if he has other symptoms (like diarrhea or a fever), see your vet right away because it’s possible your dog has an infection or a toxin.

Sometimes dogs throw up small amounts of green bile 10 to 12 hours after eating. This usually means they have an irritable stomach; you can help ease your dog’s stomach by feeding him smaller meals throughout the day.
