Thread: My Dog Vomits Large Amounts Daily....

  1. #1

    Default My Dog Vomits Large Amounts Daily....

    and this has been going on for a week or more this time. Ever since we got him in February, he has been a vomiter. There have been other stages where he has gone for a few weeks vomiting on a daily basis but this last week has been really yucky. Last nights (well at 4am) was smelly and a little liquidy. Each vomit has grass in it - he always eats grass.

    Ever since he has lived here he has always drunk a lot of water (compared to the other dog we had before him). He drinks 3 to 4 litres a day and it is not even hot weather. His bowel motions are fine and he seems energetic when needed!

    Any advice would be fabulous..

    He is a samoyed/golden retriever and 18 months old.

    You haven't thought to take him to the vet?

    Has he been seen by a Vet?
    It could be something serious.
    If Vet A. cannot identify the problem, then find a Vet B or C.

    What does he eat?

    I have found that any conventional vet cannot provide ANY nutritional advice.
    They will only recommend the products they sell themselves.

    Yes, I have thought of taking him to the vet, but as he seems otherwise well, I was unsure whether I should or not. He vomits and then seems fine, he is not listless, he has energy

    Thanks chubbsecurity. He eats Eukanuba for large breed pups. He also eats grass a lot. I actually put warm water in it and that seemed to help with the vomiting for a while. He also eats table scraps sometimes.

    I would be getting a vet check ASAP and if nothing is found try a change of food.
    This is not normal, a few chuckups here and there are but not daily.

    Is he vomiting after eating then running around a lot?

    Eating too fast?

    Di Dee is so right, this is NOT normal.

    My first dog developed cushings disease (hormonal imbalance) which caused him to eat and drink to excess. (overproduction of cortisone by adrenal gland)
    When I saw his drinking habits change I thought he had diabetes. Off to vet.

    He was 12 y.o at the time, So I doubt your dog would have this.
    However left untreated it would have killed him.
    With medication he got over it and lived a healthy and happy 15 years.

    I am not a fan of dry food, if your dog throws it up then it would seem to not agree with him.

    Try a raw food diet, human grade mince, grated sweet potato and green veggies and give him some unsweetened natural yogurt.

    He should see a vet soonest. I hope its nothing serious. Cheers.

    Thank you both so much.

    He generally vomits in the middle of the night. Between 2 and 4 in the morning although he does do it at other times it mostly is in the night.

    The people we got him from fed him dry food so we followed suit. I will take him to the vet and also look at the RAW food options...I do appreciate your thoughts.

    The other issue I have is that I take him to the beach 4 to 5 times a week as he adores swimming (and drinks half of the bay). Any suggestions on how to get him to not drink so much sea water? When we get home he drinks a load of fresh water in one go which makes me think he is getting dehydrated by drinking so much sea water?

    You may have put your finger on the problem right there.
    Maybe keep him away for a week and see if it stops happening.

    Sorry Di_dee1, I did think it related but I have not taken him in the last 7 days and yet he has started this round of daily vomiting 4 or 5 days ago.

    Ok, vet then would be my first thing I would do.
    I hope some of the others will be in soon with more insight.
