Customer Question
My dog vomited oovernight...

My dog vomited oovernight 24h ago then was fine during the day eating ok then vomited at 6pm and has had 4 episodes over past 5 hours. No diarrhoea but loud gi gurgling and some retching. She is 2 year old and a schnoodel. I have taken her water away and not fed her since she was sick. Shou

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

I don’t think so, she does try to eat the cats food and I think did that at about 3 pm

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name?

Nia

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

She was hit by a car 3 weeks ago but had no injuries and was checked by a vet.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Altman, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am so sorry to hear your dog is vomiting. First, I am glad that you have taken the step to remove the water. If there is continued actively vomiting we want to minimize anything orally to stop the nausea and abdominal cramping resulting in vomiting. I know the thought is your pet needs to drink to maintain hydration but if there is actively vomiting even water there is risk of becoming more dehydrated with water intake.

If there is no improvement then please consider having your dog seen by a veterinarian sooner rather than later. They can give injectable medications to bypass the intestinal tract and hopefully get the nausea under control

1- Keep indoors to avoid eating grass/ leaves for 6-8 hours from last vomiting episode but if you are able to get out and walk on a leash that would be great as this helps with the gurgling, nausea, and abdominal cramping. 15+ minutes if possible

2- Offer a small amount of water (1-2 teaspoons hourly) for a few hours

3- If you have this available please start Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours OR prilosec (omeprazole) 0.5 mg/ pound daily for the next 3 days with the second administration of water (crushed if needed)

4-If no vomiting, offer small amount of white rice and boiled boneless or ground chicken or ground beef. For example, one tablespoon hourly for a few hours then slowly start to increase the amount while reducing the frequency. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.

5- If vomiting continues after doing the above, I would encourage having your family veterinarian perform an examination to determine the next step to getting Nia comfortable and what exactly the underlying cause is.

Indications your dog should be seen by a veterinary er sooner include: sticky gums that are pale, yellow, blue, purple, temperature rectally >103.5, progressive lethargy with less responsiveness to you, vomiting or diarrhea that includes blood, resting respiratory rate (breaths per minute) >60, swollen abdomen.
