Dog throwing up

9 posts in this topic

Lets start off by stating that my dog is going to the vet today for x rays. However the issue is the my dog has been throwing up everything she eats for the past three days. She is acting totally normal and is the typical lab when it comes to food. She does the dance everytime its feeding time but then three to four hours later up it comes. I've reduced the amount to 1/4 of a cup but that didn't work either. All she is throwing up is her food, no other "things" or the yellow bile, just her food. Anybody have similar experience? She just won't keep anything down but wants to constantly eat and play. Thanks.

Weird. Is she "going #2" normally? I'd be concerned that she might have eaten something she shouldn't (a ball or something).

Please let us know what the vet figures out.

My dog had the exact same thing this fall. Unfortunately, it went on for 3 months and she didn't make it. The vets couldnt figure anything out. 8yr old yellow lab. We thought maybe lead poisoning from tainted dog food maybe? Your story sounds pretty similar to what we saw. She acted normal, even went out a few times grouse hunting with me. But in the last few days you could really see her fade.

The only thing she could keep down were fried eggs and toast. Not sure what else you've tried.

Well got her back from the vet last week and so far so good. Although the Vet never found anything wrong as the tests were all negative. I did stop feeding her the Nutrisource and have her on soft food. She is still eating like a horse and drink water like she should. So in the end, I'm not sure what she had or has but she's keeping her food down and doing her thing. I'm hoping everything is for the better now but obviously if not, I'm glad the U of M isn't to far and I'm very fimilar with how they do things, fingers crossed!

Very sorry for your loss Augie...I was almost there once and I really don't want to ever be there!! It's unfortuante that we can never say never though~

Just got done with the exact same scenario. Dog is acting normal, wants to eat. My dog would eat and then drink some water. Usually within 15 minutes he is throwing up. Cleaned the water dish thinking maybe bacteria or something, same thing happened. Usually feed two times per day, I increased that to three but spread throughout the day. Seemed to help. The throwing up went on for about a week or better, and now it hasn't happened again.

Poor dog, he would look at you after throwing up like he had done something terribly wrong...not his fault...even though a couple times it was on the carpet! He's been fine since. Weird.

I'm just hoping there isn't anything wrong with the food as in the past. It does seem strange that they are doing this but change it up a bit and they get back to normal. Makes you wonder if by feeding a dog the same food for many years if it actually does something to the GI system at one point or another. Obviously I am not a vet but the human body can and does do miraculous things without medicine. We as humans do and always eat different types of food...something doesn't agree with us, we tend not to eat it again but with dog or pets in general...there tends not to be a whole ton of healthy options. At times one wishes he/she could read the pets mind to a tee to find out what is wrong before it becomes to late. Very tough being a pet owner at times.

Very glad your pup is better. I know that I'm going to keep her on the vet recommended GI soft food for awhile...just a bland type of soft food with beef and rice. She eats it like it's her last meal still, my little moose!

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
