Dog question

Postby TapitsGal » Sun Oct 15, 2017 9:56 am

My three year old lab mix has gone from being perfectly fine yesterday to throwing up in my room at least six times overnight...she’s still eating but not much which isn’t a big deal as she normally doesn’t finish her food. I made rice mixed with chicken broth for her and she ate some of that and threw that up...is there anything I can give her that’s easier on her stomach than that?

For goodness sake, get her to the vet. She just may have a blockage.

I'll second that. A dog who seemed "perfectly fine" to suddenly start vomiting like that may have something seriously wrong with it.
She could have a blockage, or may have swallowed something hazardous. Or any number of problems.
TAKE HER TO THE VET. NOW. :(

Six times throwing up in one night is far to much to ignore and not to see the vet.

They are severals of reasons why this happenend. A blockade, eating something bad...

You should go to the vet very quick.

If you want to feed her food for a sensitiv stomach:

-cook potatoes and carrots and smash them together with a bit salt... only a little bit!

-cook rolled oats with water and a bit of salt.

You can add some selfmade chickenbroth if you like.

Rice is not suitable for dogs and I have no idea why vets always give this advice. Rice dehydrates the body and stick in the intestine of the dog.

Take her to the vet ASAP. If she's thrown up that many times she's probably dehydrated as well.

Yes- and please dont think I'm being too harsh but-

If you have to question something like this in an animal that is obviously needs IMMEDIATE medical attention, perhaps you can do some research and ask questions of the vet before you get an animal? Ask yourself- if someone in my home is displaying symptoms that needs to go to the ER- an animal is the same.

I hope it works out for you and pup

I doubt we'll hear back from TG about this. It's SOP for her.

I thought I was being harsh... :shock:
I hope that the pup has been to the vet by now, and that we will get an update from TG.

Good news is my younger dog is much better today... bad news is my older dog seems to have caught the bug the younger dog had. But both are licking their food dishes clean and drinking and still their normal selves
