Customer Question
My daughters 4 year...

My daughters 4 year old yorkie poo has been vomiting for the last hour. It's like he throws up but then eats it

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Yorkie eat anything unusual?

No that Is what we are trying to figure out he is eating the same food she has been giving him for the last 2 years

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Yorkie's name?

Bentley

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bentley?

He ate some of my other daughters puppy food because she just had babies 2 weeks ago this coming Sunday

the vomiting started today. He is eating the same soft & hard food for the last 3 years. He is otherwise normal. No diarrhea. He isn't on any medications. I notice the last couple of days he hasn't really been eating or drinking water
Dog Veterinarian: Dr Aaron, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Thank you for the additional information.

There are many different causes for decreased appetite / vomiting .

The most common we see are:

1 'stomach bug'

2 gastroenteritis (ate something that causes symptoms)

3 pancreatits

4 foreign body ingestion causing an obstruction

Dog Veterinarian: Dr Aaron, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

If a dog isn't interested in eating/drinking for multiple days and then starts vomiting...it gets me concerned for a few reasons.

Dogs (especially small ones) can become dehydrated quickly if they aren't eating/drinking and with vomiting.

The fact that this has been going on for a few days makes me more likely to recommend seeking treatment.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr Aaron, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

If you're able to take the dog to your local vet that would be the best choice.

They can perform a physical exam, offer diagnostics (such as x-rays of the abdomen and blood work) and then discuss possible treatment. Treatments can be given through hospitalization or on an outpatient basis.

Outpatient care for this type of presentation often includes hydration (subcutaneous fluids -- under the skin), Cerenia (antinausea injection that lasts for 24 hrs), and a bland diet (to allow food to digested easily).

Do you have any further questions?
