Question:

My 4 years old Yorkie is vomiting light red pinkish liquid, hasn't been able to eat or drink can't keep up anything in her stomach and she's also delusional

Answer:

Since there are so many potential causes of vomiting (both gastrointestinal and many others like liver disease, kidney disease, pancreatitis, cancer, etc etc. - all of these treated very differently) and the severity of her symptoms (blood in the vomitus and disorientation), you need to see your local veterinarian as soon as you can.

Question:

how much Dimenhydrinate do you give a 100 pound dog

Answer:

Since it's use in dogs is "off label" or "extra label", I can't advise you about dosages through the internet. I would need a lot more information too - why is s/he vomiting, what did last bloodwork look like, etc. etc. so consult your veterinarian for the best advice.

TopicThrowing up Pinkish foamy liquid
vet-qa-signature
Question:

My 12 month old puppy threw up Pinkish foamy liquid today and some yellow foamy liquid 3 days back. A little background, he suffered from reverse cough and lung infection 4 months back, he was treated for it and he's been fine. He still eats like a horse, he is still very active and playful. Should i be worried?

Answer:

Since there are so many potential causes, if it continues, definitely have your veterinarian check him out. Since he feels fine and is still eating fine, try a good probiotic. Good brands to look for are Fortiflora (https://www.1800petmeds.com/Purina+FortiFlora-prod10376.html) and Proviable (https://www.1800petmeds.com/Proviable-prod12083.html)

Question:

White mucus vomiting every other day , what to use, what product?

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.

Question:

How many pills of metronidazole would a 18lbs 6 month old puppy need

Answer:

It depends on the degree of digestive upset or whatever condition you are treating, so consult your veterinarian for the best advice, but he falls in between a 125mg and 250mg dosage so I would probably start at 125mg twice daily.

Question:

My cat can only eat Science Diet wet cat food, savory chicken. Science diet is having Issue problems so I cannot get it. What can I give her in place of this? Even in another brand?

Answer:

Other good brands are Royal Canin, Blue Buffalo and Purina ProPlan - of those, Purina ProPlan is probably the most bland and the least expensive. Look at the ingredients and try to find one very similar to the one she does well on.

Topicflecks of blood in vomit
vet-qa-signature
Question:

This week my cat has thrown up a few times, usually just left over food. This morning I noticed foamy vomit (no food), with little flecks of fresh blood in it. I don't know how urgent this should be. He still has an appetite and is very active.

Answer:

If you are seeing blood, I would go ahead and have your veterinarian check him out. There are MANY potential underlying causes, so they will need to run some tests (bloodwork, x-rays, etc.) to figure out the best treatment for him.

What could be making my 13 year old cat vomit everyday? Had bloodwork and ultrasound done and everything is fine

Answer:

There are MANY causes of vomiting. Since bloodwork was good, further testing is probably ideal (x-rays, ultrasound, etc.). Switching to hairball diets and/or sensitive stomach food may help.

Question:

My mini Australian shepherd threw up 3 small piles of clear red liquid with a little pit of foam/bubbles on top this morning. He’s acting very lethargic/lazy now and isn’t acting like himself. He did drink water but he won’t play with out other dog and doesn’t want to come to me anymore. I didn’t see him eat anything bad lately. What do i do?

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. The red may be blood, so that is worrisome. So see your veterinarian if it continues and/or worsens.

Question:

How do I treat it ?

Answer:

Your veterinarian will have blood tests to confirm (or deny) and then treatment for lead poisoning (usually chelators - that shouldn't be given without confirmation of a, very rare, diagnosis).

Question:

My cat who is 11 years old is vomiting 2 to 3 days a week. This has been a regular issue for a number of years. I can observe it isn't an issue with hair balls. Actually - my cat has

Answer:

Vomiting can be caused by MANY different things, especially at age 11: primary gastrointestinal problems, but also many metabolic disorders (hyperthyroidism, liver problems, kidney problems, pancreatic issues, etc.) and many other things (cancer, etc.) so seeing your veterinarian for some bloodowrk and x-rays is ideal at this point, to make a definitive diagnosis and treat appropriately because many (most actually) of those and other causes are treated differently.
