He is a 80...

He is a 80 pound pit bull - he has been throwing up white foamy vomit for the last 2 days - thought it might be just a stomach bug now i am not sure. He is eating bland food and drinking water

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

Do not think so - my husband thinks he has a cold

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

Eddie

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

Not that I can think of

Aw, poor Eddie! Vomiting is no fun. If he is eating the bland food and keeping it down (only vomiting foam) then I'd consider bilious syndrome, which is a fancy term for nausea on an empty stomach. It usually happens in the middle of the night or first thing in the AM after not eating all night (it could be midday as well depending on feeding schedule). Feeding a snack before bed along with 20mg pepcid AC can really help with this. Does this sound like what could be happening? Is he otherwise feeling ok and eating ok?

Thank you DrSarah
your response is exactly what is happening. He has been better today - more active.

Oh good! Dividing dinner into two meals with half before bed should help. Let me know if I can help in any other way! Kindly consider rating my answer; you can always get back to me with questions and updates after rating.
