Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting in nursing dogs

vomiting

He is really just laying around. My mom wants to know if the dog is in physical pain? He does not act like he is in pain, but dogs don't show pain like we do. I know she loves him and only wants to do what is best.
It probably IS bile - that's what the yellow color is. It looks that way when dogs vomit and they don't have any food in their stomachs. Any unexplained vomiting should be investigated, so take him to the vet. It might just be a bug, but it could be something more serious. Either way, your vet can give him meds to help with the nausea and vomiting. Is he eating and drinking OK?
Damage to organs from the dehydration caused by constant vomiting is what normally ends up doing them in, so as long as this is controlled and fluids are administered to prevent dehydration, the inflammation usually subsides a couple of days into the treatment and things begin to improve. Did the vet give you any kind of clue as to what type of bacteria is causing the enteritis?
Dark meat poultry, fatty hamburger, ground lamb, and canadian bacon are good choices. Of course, dogs in renal failure are so nauseated, it's hard to get them to eat anything, so if she won't eat the low-phosphorus foods, just get something in her. To counteract phosphorus, give her one or two Tums antacid tablets a day - or any indigestion tablet that is primarily calcium. The calcium binds with phosphorus and carries out of the body so it can't do further harm to the kidneys.
I have learned that the elevated phosphorus in the blood counts for a lot when it comes to nausea and vomiting. If it s possible to lower that at all, it can definitely help them to keep food down. I would recommend to try him with white rice with low sodium (or no salt at all) chicken broth. That is simply water in which chicken has simmered. A little grated carrot or a few green beans can be added if liked. Plus one Omega 3 oil capsule, broken open and stirred into the food.
This can lead to the nipples becoming permanently enlarged from basically being in the near-constant state of nursing puppies. With a short-haired breed this is much more readily apparent than it is with a long-haired breed. The copious amounts of vomit make me suspicious that there is an intussusception at work here, however you said that she had a normal bowel movement, which is not characteristic of an intussusception.
I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
There's some research that shows that Enalapril also helps kidney function in general in dogs, in addition to helping control blood pressure. My Vet started our Grey on a low dose. This is also off the boards. There are some very knowledgeable people on there, so take what you can from it but always discuss your particular situation with your Vet. At the beginning stage the best thing to feed are proteins that are at the top of the bio-availability chart, such as fish and eggs.
I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
She was certified through Therapy Dogs International, and visited the sick in the hospital, mental hospital, nursing homes and shelters. She would wear crazy outfits cheerfully and never complained. After 9/11, she was one of the first certified Disaster Stress Relief dogs, working to bring a ray of sunshine at the Pentagon's Family Assistance Center. She comforted victim's families, soldiers, chaplains and rescue workers alike, working long exhausting emotional days without hesitation.
no food and water by mouth to allow the pancreas to rest, and hopefully reduce its swelling. That is why intense nursing care is so important in the form of IV fluid and nutrient (TPN) maintenance, and pain management. That's also why this condition can be so expensive to treat. In my dog's case, the pancreas was so swollen that it blocked the common bile duct. That resulted in blocking enzyme flow from the pancreas, as well as bile flow from the liver and gallbladder.
You'll want to put him on a diet as low as possible in phosphorus - that stuff is deadly in dogs with kidney failure. Calcium is a phosphorus binder and remove it fromthe body. A plain old Tums tablet once or twice a day (depending on how badly your dog is doing) will help a great deal. Add some pepcid or zantac, but keep a close eye out for loss of appetite.
She has an appt. for Monday but, I'm going to try to get her in earlier I think. Her urine output is nothing compared to what she is taking in and no bm for 4 days so I'm cringing at the thought of a partial blockage/blockage. She is 17 years old and God bless her still runs the rabbits. She is my faithful Lady.
Methocarbamol and/or its metabolites are excreted in the milk of dogs; however, it is not known whether methocarbamol or its metabolites are excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Robaxin is administered to a nursing woman. PEDIATRIC USE: Safety and effectiveness of Robaxin in pediatric patients below the age of 16 have not been established. OVERDOSAGE: Limited information is available on the acute toxicity of methocarbamol.
How old is he? Has he had his shots? Any vomiting and/or diarrhea? Is there a chance he may have ingested something, either something on the floor, something he chewed, plants, any liquids around, anti-freeze? Call around and see if there possibly isn't a Vet that will work with you on payment. If the puppy doesn't improve soon, you really do need to get him checked.
The mother may need a special diet, as her calcium requirements are different at the moment. Low calcium levels in a nursing b-i-t-c-h can cause Eclampsia, which can be dangerous for her.
if they are Great Danes they will cost a lot to look after and feed they are very very big dogs in fact the tallest on the planet .....them and Wolf Hounds they need the best care when young and not too much exercise as in the first 12 months as they grow so fast and bones are really soft.So plenty of calcium as well. I have had a giant breed an English Mastiff and in that first 12 months they will eat you out of house and home as they need fuel to grow.
I didn't even know dogs could puke up worms from their stomach- I thought worms set in later in the lower digestive tract. Thanks for posting the info.
Since being in another room, he was ending up back in our bed by 2 in the morning because my husband was getting him when he cried and bringing him back because he couldn't console him unless it was in our bed. Not that he didn't try; Greydon just knew he could get Daddy to cave easier than Mommy, lol. I was and am easily able to console Greydon most nights *in his room* by either rocking him or just laying him on his tummy in his crib and rubbing his back until he falls asleep.
Taking my Bolognese to vet in one hour! Has been vomiting bile and listless for a couple of days and now this morning--bloody diahrrea! I have JUST gotten over taking Flagyl for one week for treatment of C-Diff diagnosis and have been desperately sick for a few months. My puppy just turned one year old and I am so worried! Will keep all posted and thank you for all of this information!
You might try easy to digest things like cooked chicken and rice, or even better, a little cooked green tripe (it stinks, but dogs absolutely love it). Mix the phosphorus binder in with it. You and Zeus are in my thoughts.
I will read it in full, if only to further educate me about what has happened to my wonderful BB and, maybe, prevent it happening to others by spreading the information I have obtained about kidney problems in dogs over the last few days. In truth, I have been grasping at straws, hoping to find something to help her ... but it has gradually become very clear over the last 4 days that my best friend and companion has gone beyond the helping stage. It is heart wrenching.

I would love to see what dreams she's having! Jaybay has a good point. Most dogs need challenges as well as exercise in the day. They need to problem-solve in one way or another, and the more intelligent they are, the more they need that. Walks in new territory are an interesting thing for them. Extra mental stimulus. And most healthy dogs need more exercise than humans are normally accustomed to!
Her clinic is relativaly near and I would not care in going there walking if I wont had to carry the box About the carrier, no,I was thinking about attaching the cat to the stroller - sit- using one of those security belts for transporting dogs in cars...
Cortical atrophy and interstitial fibrosis were observed in dogs and monkeys at doses above 5 mg/kg/day. In monkeys, the highest dose tested (75 mg/kg/day) was associated with single cell necrosis and multifocal and diffuse interstitial fibrosis, indicating irreversible loss of renal tissue and function. In dogs and monkeys, the 5 mg/kg/day dose was associated with plasma MMF exposures less than or similar to that in humans at the recommended human dose (RHD).
Besides suffering from PVC's and vertigo, lately I have been having this feeling of pressure in my upper chest and throat. It almost feels tight and like I have food stuck. I have asthma too. Sometimes (like right now) I notice a burning sensation in my stomach, like I need to burp but can't and the sensation makes me feel like I have to cough. I don't really feel short of breath but like I have to breathe harder.
Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
