Thread: Dog Vomitting - Gross

  1. #1

    Default Dog Vomitting - Gross

    For the past couple of days my 9 month old puppy has not been able to keep much down. Even if I give her a treat she brings it back up. I haven't changed her diet at all but god know what she eats in the garden!

    She is on dry food only and I am finding I now have to give her a little bit at a time otherwise she eats it all super fast only to bring it up again. She is starving but what can I do.

    I think she may have been bitten by a bee the other day - would that have any effect?
    Thanks

    I echo the others, go to a vet instead of posting on a forum.

    Yes, as the others have said. Straight to the vet please.

    I took her to the vet (prior to all your great advice ) and they just said to monitor her - give her plenty of water for next 12 to 24 hours. Suggested she may have eaten something that doesn't agree with her. Her mood is perky and her poops are normal. They didn't seem too concerned and said a day without food won't hurt.

    Will keep an eye on her.
    Thanks

    Great news, would have helped though that you told us that. I hope all continues well.

    If you've got some Lectade on hand, please prep some & give it to her. If not, please find out where you can get some & have it on hand for future use. You can Google "Lectade" to see the benefits.

    Would have been helpful if you'd mentioned the vet when you posted.

    Suggest fasting her like the vet said for at least 12 hours ie no breakfast, lunch or dinner then sleep until next day. And then feeding soft food only. Like boiled chicken and boiled white rice.

    If there is something blocking her gut like a piece of bone or a piece of stick or strapping tape or whatever she found down the bottom of the garden - feeding her dried food will just get clagged against the blockage and come back to haunt you. Put one piece of kibble in a bowl of water and leave for an hour to get an idea of how bad that stuff can be on an upset tummy. It expands to about four times its original size.

    To slow her eating rate down, you can load soft food into a Kong, and dried food (when she's better) into a treat ball, or a special bowl that has inbuilt "bricks" in it to make gobbling more difficult.

    What dry food are you feeding? I found my puppy had regular tummy upsets until I changed brand and quality of dried food. Some brands have a lot of stuff like corn meal in them that upsets a dog's tummy.

    There are two websites that help you choose a better dried food.
    Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble
    and
    The Dog Food Project - How does your Dog Food Brand compare?

    Note that both are from the USA and food made here under licence (eg Advance and Nutro natural choice) may be of better quality and not subject to the same product recalls as there. Both websites will clue you in on how to check the ingredients list for good quality (or lack of it)

    Sorry for the confusion - I did post my original question first - and before I waited for repsonses I walked her up to my vet to be on the safe side so I didn't have the vet info at my first post. (apologies - English is my second language).

    Thanks for the food advice - I feed her Pedigree Puppy Support - thought is was good because they use Australian produce etc

    I like the kong idea - I will try when she is allowed to eat again. I am sure she will be very happy with that too.
    Thanks again
