Dog Vomiting? Help Your Dog Now

In most cases you should not be too concerned about your dog  vomiting . If you know that the dog got into something or you changed its diet, you can probably wait 24 hours to see if the  vomiting  clears up, but only if your dog does not appear lethargic.

You must withhold food for 24 hours and then gradually start a bland diet. If at any time the dog becomes worse please see your veterinarian.

If your dog has been  vomiting  continually for more than 1 hour or if he has been  vomiting  on and off for 24 hours, it is severe and you should bring him in to see the doctor.

 Vomiting  can have lots of causes. Sometimes the cause can be straightforward. An easy indication maybe what was the pet’s last meal.

Sometimes the consistency of the  vomit  may indicate what’s wrong.

o Undigested food-1.food poisoning 2. Anxiety, 3.simply overeating

o Strong odor-intestinal obstruction.

If no  vomiting  occurs in 24 hours, then you can try and give some ice cubes followed by water. If no  vomiting  occurs, then give a small amount of a bland diet. If the dog continues to  vomit , call your veterinarian.

What to do for dog  vomiting 

1. withholding food for 24 hours.

2. Feed a bland diet, consisting of 2/3 rice, sweet potato or oatmeal and 1/3 of the meal should be well cooked non-fatty meats like chicken.

3. Feed only 1/2 of the normal amount of food at a time. Or you can feed several small meals until the  vomiting  has subsided.
