Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.
Does she eat any non food items such as bones, paper, rawhides, bully sticks etc?
Did she eat any human food lately, if so what?
Could she have gotten into trash or a toxin?
Is she showing interest in eating?
When did she last eat?
Is there any diarrhea?
Thank you for that information.
If she does not eat non food items then a concern for a blockage can be ruled out.
At this point, I would suspect a possible virus and for this it is best to fast the pup for 24 hours then start a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked white rice.
I would also try giving him a Pepcid AC since he is bringing up bile. That may also help settle the stomach. Here is a link on dosing this http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid
Newfs are my favorite breed. Going on number 7:)
Dogs do this to make themselves vomit. I would not let her do this because if she swallows it and it does not come up in vomit then it can become a blockage in the intestines. I think once you give the pepcid she will feel better.
Of course over the 24 hour fasting, she can have water and if she is vomiting this then try giving ice cubes so she stays hydrated.
Take her vital signs so you know if it is turning south and you need a hands on exam sooner rather than later.
