My Dog keeps vomiting water within minutes of drinking, no

Customer Question

My Dog keeps vomiting water within minutes of drinking, no appetite for food. Regurgitation is not just water, but slightly sticky and viscous in nature. This has been on going now for about 12 ~ 14 hours... any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner, Alex. Such a patient as Nui Nui is initially addressed by not doing; in other words, is fasted for a minimum of 12 hours but water is left down unless drinking induces more vomiting at which time ice cubes for Nui Nui to lick should replace her water. Because her vomiting has been so protracted she'll require parenteral therapy (therapy administered in any manner other than orally) in the form of injectable antiemetic and antacid drugs as well as supplemental fluids and electrolytes to replace that which was lost in her vomitus and provide her with the fluids and lectrolytes she would ordinarily have ingested over the last 24 hours. She's a patient requiring care at a 24-hour facility.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi Alex,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Nui Nui. How is everything going?
