What should I do if my dog vomits

2018-01-08 06:24:00

Sometimes dogs eat unclean things or stomach upset will vomit, this is a self-protection performance, vomited over, nothing serious. But if you keep vomiting, you need to see a doctor;

One, you have to observe what it is vomiting.

This information is taken from experience without authorization


If it is food that has been eaten for a while and has been digested, there are several possibilities: 1. The food is unsanitary; 2. Food is not suitable for dogs (milk, many substances contained in milk are not digestible and acceptable to dogs' stomachs, which will cause excessive secretion of stomach acid); 3. Unhygienic food; 4. Your dog has digestive problems; 5. Dogs have too many parasites, etc.

Second, you should carefully remember the time of each vomit

If it is too frequent (generally more than 2 times in a month can be regarded as frequent), there must be a problem, it is recommended that you take it to the hospital to check carefully, if there is a problem, it is better to treat as soon as possible. END

Third, it is infected with bacteria, tiny bacteria, dog heat, enteritis and so on.

In short, there are many reasons why dogs can vomit, and it can also be a precursor to illness. But as long as it is not often vomiting can be assured, because dogs also have the habit of cleaning their own hair, when they wash will lick into some hair, some of these hair will be excreted, but also part of the accumulation in their stomach, and when the accumulation of more, it will form dog vomiting. END

And finally, one more caveat

If you do not feed it at a fixed time, and it is more able to eat, then hunger will also cause the dog to vomit. The causes of vomiting are mostly related to gastritis, the causes of diarrhea are mostly related to enteritis, and if left untreated, vomiting may lead to diarrhea, and vice versa, hours (END

Treatment of vomiting:

If there are no more serious symptoms, fast the dog for 24 hours (12 hours for puppies). We can continue to supply water, but not too much. 50-100 ml for small dogs and 200 ml for large dogs. If the dog has finished drinking the prescribed amount of water, the same amount of water can be given 30 minutes later, but not immediately. If you stop vomiting, you can give a small amount of light food that is easy to digest, such as scrambled eggs. If vomiting occurs frequently, mix a small amount of brandy (one teaspoon for large dogs, less for small dogs) with the first meal. If you no longer vomit after eating, you can cook chicken, lean meat or whitefish and feed it with bibimbap. Should feed three small meals a day, not give one meal a day. The next day, if all is well, you can feed more normal food, but still keep small amounts. It's best to wait another day or two before you fully return to your normal diet. For the first four days, only about two-thirds of the amount should be fed.


Administration: Generally, veterinarians will not use antibiotics to treat cases of simple gastroenteritis. Aluminum hydride suspension is a good gastric sedative for vomiting dogs, small dogs, one teaspoon three times a day; For large dogs, one spoonful four times a day. For dogs with vomiting or diarrhea, a combination of terracotta, morphine or terracotta, and pectinate may also be given (see alumina hydroxide for dosage). It's best to have at least one of these medications on hand.
