my dog has been throwing up and pooping blood about every 20

Customer Question

my dog has been throwing up and pooping blood about every 20 minutes for the past couple of hours (since I've been home). I'm not sure how long this has been going on today. What could this be? Can he go to his vet first thing in the morning or do I need to take him to emergency?

Dr. Norman Bayne :

Welcome to JustAnswer...my name isXXXXX a licensed veterinarian, and will do my absolute best to assist you.

Dr. Norman Bayne :

How old is he? Is he current on his vaccinations? What breed? Particularly parvovirus. The black and tan breeds are more susceptible to parvovirus.

Customer:

He is about 4 years old. A chihuahua/terrier mix. He is current on his vaccinations

Customer:

I'm 99% sure he's had his parvovirus within the last year

Dr. Norman Bayne :

This could be many things; but first, I want to let you know that it could be an emergency if the bouts are occurring every 20 minutes. Could be he ingested a foreign body, pancreatitis if painful in his abdomen, a severe gastroenteritis, still could be parvovirus. He should be seen at an emergency clinic before he becomes dehydrated and anemic. Since he is a small dog, he will dehydrate quickly with the diarrhea and vomiting.

Customer:

He goes straight for his water bowl as soon as he throws up or poops

Customer:

I should take him in now then?

Dr. Norman Bayne :

Does he keep the water down or is he still vomiting? Is there blood in the vomitus?

Customer:

no blood in the vomitus. mainly clear.

Customer:

he keeps it down for about 20 minutes and then vomits again

Dr. Norman Bayne :

You should get him to an emergency clinic now as this is a major problem.

Customer:

okay. I will take him in right away.

Customer:

thank you

Dr. Norman Bayne :

Good luck with him. You are very welcome.
