Hello. I am...

Hello. I am a little concerned about my 6yo labradoodle Chelsea. 70 lbs. The past 3 days she has been throwing up her breakfast about 5-6 hrs after eating. Her schedule has been the same for several years. She and her step-sister Maggie eat the same thing with no issues from Maggie/

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

They eat Earthborn dogfood 2x a day nothing new no table scraps a beef marrow bone 2x a month

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

I have a new roommate who I thought might have fed her human food but over the weekend I was with them the whole time and she threw up Saturday and just about an hour ago.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I am sorry you are going through this with your pet. I can make a few recommendations of things you can try at home to help with GI upset. Common causes are ingestion of a foreign body, ulcers, infections, or even part of a systemic disease, etc. to name a few causes. Unfortunately, we are very limited as to what you can do at home to pinpoint the exact underlying cause. I would recommend a hands-on examination with your family veterinarian and x-rays as an initial screening test. In the meantime, this is what you can do:

You can give Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours for the next few days. It is an antacid that can help decrease the acidity in the stomach and help with vomiting. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help when they are having GI upset. You can also syringe feed some Pedialyte to help with hydration. You can also give some canned food or chicken baby food to help with appetite if the chicken and rice isn't appetizing. 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!
