Customer Question
He’s vomited slimy white...

He’s vomited slimy white foam 4-5 times tonight...and he’ll sit down and whine like he’s in pain..tries to lay down for a moment but whines and sits up

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

He’s around 14 and my dad gave him ribs w/ bbq sauce earlier 😡

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. It sounds like ribs did not sit well with your dog. The problem with feeding cooked ribs is that the bones can splinter and cause issues with the GI tract. I would recommend feeding some Wonder Bread. Wonder Bread can attach to the bones and make them less pointy in the stomach while the stomach digests them. I would also feed some boiled chicken and white rice as a bland diet for the next 48 hours. To help settle the stomach, I would give Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours for the next 48 hours. If he continues to vomit with the Wonder Bread and Pepcid, I would recommend taking him in for an xray as the bones may be causing a bigger problem internally. Let me know if you have any other questions.

If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
