Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
I am so sorry to hear that Max has suffered head trauma. Can you give me an update on what is going on? Is the vomiting continual? Are you seeing blood from the nose or mouth?
My suspicion is that he's likely dealing with some increased intracranial pressure due to the trauma, which can result in nausea and vomiting. The black vomiting you're seeing may well be from blood that was swallowed due to trauma. I'm glad that you chose to take him in as this will be the best route of care that can be offered. Many dogs survive head trauma, so be aware that there is potential for this to have a positive outcome. With diagnostics, treatment and time, your vet should be able to tell you if they're seeing improvements or not, which will have a direct reflection on whether or not he will make a successful recovery. If you learn more today from your vet and would like to talk further, feel free to reply and we can continue our chat.
