My dog is throwing up!

Question Posted Sunday April 15 2007, 7:04 pm

It happened before but its happened 5 times today.. He threw up in the morning some chicken he had ate! Is it basically just getting out of his system or should i be worried.. Its definitely not blood.. Most of its just regular like Water/ Saliva but its colored like yellowish as usual.. Respond ASAP!

Take your dog to a veterinarian as soon as possible.

To be able to answer, I'd need to know the age of the dog, the breed, and what chicken? Home cooked chicken? Raw chicken? Dog food chicken?

Without this answers it is up in the air.

Was it first meal of day? Mid-day? Supper? Late night?

Raw chicken is bad because of salmonila regardless of what the RAW diet fans tell you. It's rubbage.

Home cooked chicken still could have have salmonila.

Answer these questions and I can help.

Ask JR.

P.S. Some dogs eat later in the day and evening skipping meals, and this causes empty stomach syndrome where they vomit and/or vomit after eating something.

Also, the bulging twisted stomach syndrome is fatal. Get him to a vet to be safe.

This may not apply to you but I will mention it anyway since you say it has happened before.

I had a pup who started throwing up all the time when he was 5 or 6 months old. He was a large dog breed. His problem as it turned out was his guts got twisted. I'm sure there is a professional name for it but that was the vets way of putting it. I guess this is common in big chested dogs, like German Shepard size. He simply couldn't digest his food.

So if it continues, do get him to a vet. If he is an older dog, this probably doesn't apply. They get tangled because they are active and jump and play a lot. :)

If you haven't given him the suspect food I've seen mentioned here a few times, he probably has an upset tummy. The yellow colour would suggest this. He's most likely hoovered up something he's found lying around somewhere and his stomach is objecting.

Don't feed him anything for the next 12 hours, just offer him water and cuddles. If he's not vomited for a few hours at the end of this time, slowly introduce bland food in small quantities to him. You could start with baked chicken, (no fat), plain boiled rice, baked white fish, (check for bones).

If this settles ok and there are no repeated incidences of vomiting, he should be fine to resume a normal diet again.

If however, he continues to be sick, blood appears in it, he starts to be ill again when the twelve hours are up or if he starts to look listless and unhappy, take him to a vet immediately. He will need to be checked out by a professional.

Good luck.

No he doesn't.. he eats real healthy food but he loves chicken so we gave him a little.. so it shoud just be digesting in his system or what?

It doesn't seem like much is wrong. However- I'm not a vet- so if you feel really concerned- I would advise that you go see one.
If you don't feel too concerned- then I understand- vets are expensive.

I'm sure it will pass soon enough =]

Hope I helped!
