Question:You Hi, we just adopted a dog and she looks very malnourished and we fed her but shes been throwing up. Is there any way to help her stop throwing up?

Answer:It's going to be hard for me to recommend anything for you without examining him and getting a detailed history because there are so many causes of vomiting. Add to that, it is often hard to differentiate coughing, reverse sneezing, regurgitation, and vomiting. So see your veterinarian if it continues and/or worsens.

Topic: Vomiting and allergic reaction

Question:What can I do at home to help my dog before taking to vet. I have a dog with behavior problems who gets very aggressive especially when going to the vet I want to try and treat her at home. I came home yesterday to find that she had scratched her face open and had bumps and welts all over her for her head her cheeks and her skin was red and she was itching it like crazy she also had vomited. She then was up all night wanting to go outside to Rub in the grass to vomit and she had diarrhea. I gave her Benadryl which helped with the itching but she still has no appetite has vomited again and stil has diarrhea.

Answer:Be sure you are using at least 1mg per pound of body weight with your benadryl dosage. Noone ever gives enough. So a 50 pound dog needs 50 mg - that's 2 of what you and I take one of - up to 3 times a day. With the vomiting it is ideal to see your veterinarian though because just get thrown up or not absorbed well and your veterinarian will have MUCH stronger medications than Benadryl.

Topic: Dog trembling

Question:I have a cocker spaniel. He is 4 yrs old . This morning he woke up trembling. Last night he went to bed perfectly fine. This morning he has been trembling not really acting himself. Not wanting to play. I think that he is weak too because hes not wanting to jump on the couch or the bed. He hasnt eaten his food. He is just laying down all the time and trembling . I do hear gurgling sounds coming from his stomach.

Answer:I can't tell what is going on with him from what you describe (GI issue vs back pain vs something else entirely) so see your veterinarian if it continues or worsens.

Topic: Cat vomits frequently

Question:My tuxedo kitty girl, Phoebe, is five and has vomited frequently since she was one, or earlier. In the last year it has increased from 2-5 per month to 10 in December, and twice already this first 5 days of the new year. She often does it when she jumps off something, and she never appears to feel bad. She always wants to fill right back up. I feed her Merrick Limited Ingredient (90% plus of daily volume), and Fancy Feast and tuna as daily treats, which she has come to pointedly expect. She is confined to house completely and gets more affection than one can expect from one person. Any ideas or concerns?

Answer:There are so many causes of vomiting, ideally have your veterinarian run some blood work on her. Ideally stop the Fancy Feast and tuna.

Answer:There are so many causes of vomiting, you will need to run blood work now and possibly take x-rays to see what is going on.

Topic: Dog is Throwing Up after Antibiotic

Question:My 13 pound terrier mix, Ollie, was on Baytril (22.7mg) up until about 24 hours ago. We took him off after waking up this morning to Ollie throwing up all his kibble from last night. After talking to the vet, we took him off the antibiotic. We have tried to feed him this morning and throughout the day but he is uninterested. Finally, he ate a little bit of food but has also thrown that up. I'm concerned if this is a side effect of his antibiotic or if it's an issue I need to seek emergency medical help with.

Answer:Vomiting is a side effect of an antibiotic like Baytril but dogs vomit for so many different reasons, it is impossible for me to say, especially without knowing more about him (why he was on baytril, dosage of baytril, his weight, blood work, etc.) - your veterinarian knows all of that, so they are the best ones to continue to consult about this.

Topic: Regular ongoing vomiting episodes

Question:I have a 9yr old chihuahua cross that ever since he was a pup he has regular bouts of vomiting it is often a weekly thing where he will vomit for a day then stop his diet is chicken no seasoning or anything and dog biscuits he was admitted to after hours a few weeks ago for vomiting for 3 days and stopped eating and drinking xrays, bloods and urine tests were done and still no answers he was on fluids iv and antibiotics but realised with no answers and again today has vomited twice what can we do or what can be causing this

Answer:Since all his blood work and x-rays have been normal, changing to a bland prescription dog food diet is a good idea: chicken and dog biscuits is not a bland (or a balanced) diet.
