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

Vomiting in dogs can be due to many things including:
1. gastroenteritis (inflammation/ irritation/ infection of gastro-intestinal tract)
2. dietary indiscretion
3. foreign body obstruction
4. pancreatitis (infection of pancreas gland)
5. organ/ endocrine abnormality
6. cancer in older dogs

We typically shoot x-rays to rule out an obstruction and run bloodwork to rule out pancreatitis and organ disease.

The majority of cases will be due to a non-specific gastroenteritis and conservative care at home can often relieve the signs.

You could pick up some Famotidine (Pepcid) over the counter and give it to him 1-2 times daily to see if it helps. The dose in dogs is 0.25 mg per lb body weight. If this is just some gastric reflux, then it should help the signs.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
