    Dog Vomiting Treatments, Causes

    Vomiting may be natural or unnatural, depending to the cause.



    Usually when a dog vomits after overeating, it’s the body’s natural method of getting rid of the unwanted and undigested food. However, there may be times when you find your dog vomiting a yellow substance or blood. While a dog vomiting yellow bile may still be natural, a dog vomiting blood is certainly not.




    If your dog has been vomiting blood and the vomiting seems to be acute, it is time to raise the alarm. If the vomiting is accompanied with diarrhea, fever, lethargy or general malaise, your dog may be in need of prompt medical attention.

    Causes of Vomiting in Dogs


    • Over eating
    • Irritation in the stomach or stomach lining
    • Normal regurgitation
    • Food allergy
    • Ingestion of unwanted foreign material.
    • Based on what is causing the vomiting to occur, the condition can be divided into two broad categories.



    • Acute vomiting, which is sudden in its onset and usually occurs only once and
    • Chronic vomiting that is caused due to a serious stomach ailment

    Acute Vomiting in Dogs


    Acute vomiting in dogs is not usually a sign of something serious. This could possibly be only because of a change in feeding habits or an introduction to a new, unfamiliar diet. Usually acute vomiting is caused by less serious stomach problems and can be treated at home. When a dog vomits because of a minor stomach problem or a stomach upset, it tends to stop eating for sometime before resuming it once the problem is gone. In certain cases, you may need to withhold the food yourself. Once the dog stops vomiting, it can be brought back to its normal diet.

    If you find your puppy vomiting, it is best to get it checked by a doctor because there could be a parasitical infection responsible. Most puppies get these parasites from their mothers. However, proper treatment and vaccinations can help the puppies stop vomiting.

    Chronic Vomiting in Dogs


    If the vomiting is sudden and is then repeated several times, the dog may be in need of medical intervention, having eaten something that it shouldn’t have. Ingestion of foreign material could cause a blockage in the intestines of the animal, leading to cramping of the muscles and vomiting accompanied by diarrhea. An x ray and ultrasound may help a doctor identify any foreign object that may be lodged inside the dog’s stomach. In such a case, you will find your dog vomiting white foam. It may also vomit fecal matter, depending on where the foreign material is lodged.
