Dog vomiting

My dog has vomited a few times during the last 12 hours.  I didn't see her eat anything she shouldn't have...but that doesn't mean she didn't get into something while I wasn't looking.  

 

What should I do now?  It seems a little premature to take her to the vet now as she's only gotten sick a few times and it hasn't been 24 hours yet.  She has plenty of energy too.  

Re: Dog vomiting

  • watch her for now.


    I would hold off feeding her this morning and possibly this afternoon.  If she doesn't throw up today try feeding her some boiled chicken and rice (cooked in chicken broth is great).

     

    If she keeps vomiting without food, you see blood or she starts acting sick I would call your vet.

  • You can also try a bland diet for a day or two boiled beef/chicken and rice and make sure she has enough water down so she can stay hydrated.

    This.  I hope she feels better!

  • Keep an eye on her.  You can feed her boiled chicken and rice or your vet will likely have some food for gastro-intenstinal problems that you can pick up without an appointment.  Try to make sure she stays hydrated too.  You can give them a bit of chicken broth or something if they aren't drinking plain water.

    One of my dogs was vomitting a lot and wouldn't eat and then the other dog started having diarrhea and blood in her stool, so I took them to the vet.  They got some pills and were better after a week on the meds.

  • Lots of great advice from PPs. Another thing you can feed your dog who is sick is pumpkin filling (sugar free of course). It is bland and has nutrients in them that works similar to the chicken broth.

    If the vomiting does not get better or stop and you decide to go tot he vet, I would recommending taking a "sample" with you. It sounds gross, but it is recommended. It is good to try and measure the amount and type of vomit so your vet can better identify if it is a stomach bug or something she did eat.

    The energy is a good sign.  If she becomes lethargic, then you should head to the vet.

  • I don't remember the last time my dog vomited. I think it was when I gave her supplements for joints. I wish could remember the name of the supplements, but alas. Will never do it again.

    Actually, I do remember. The supplement is called Joint Strong. I bought it from supplement locker. Just found it, here it is: http://supplementlocker.com/k9-joint-strong-2lb/  Would not recommend it to anyone, although all dogs are different. Maybe mine has some kind of an allergy to this and other pet supplements.
