Vomiting mucus in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting mucus in dogs

vomiting

We have a male rottweiler who in the last month or so has started vomiting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, sometimes with a small amount of food in, no blood or anything untoward. He hasnt eaten anything he shouldnt and apart from the vomiting he is fine in himself. He does a slight hacking noise like he is clearing his throat and he seems to throw up after he has been laying down.
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?
I would have to do some reading up on this issue in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s. I am somewhat familiar with delayed motility in people so am assuming the "mechanics", so to speak are the same. Sounds like he has an irritated gut too. He needs to be on a bland food that is easily digested. Try cooking up some chicken (no skin) and rice and you could add some vegetable like shredded zucchini.
Bile is usually green or yellow, in our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s experiences. If it was white and foamy, it could be frothy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>...hard to really say. If it was a one time thing, just watch him carefully for other signs of distress such as abnormal panting, unusual behaviors such as rolling repeatedly or getting into the "praying" position often, diarrhea, not eating, or if he seems to be biting or bothering at his flanks, or tummy bloating.
If not, probably a good idea to get one done. Ok, I have given this advice before and it has helped with these vomiting issues in a few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s including my kid's dogs. Might be worth a try. There are a lot of good brand dog foods out there but you may want to give this a try for a few days to a week. Get a small bag of Pro Plan Salmon for sensitive stomachs. Mix it half and half with what you feed now for 2-3 days then try switching over. Feed at least two or three smaller meals a day.
interesting ....I just saw it in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s that hadnt eaten their dinner or hadnt been fed, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s also threw up after eating grass so again if they were feeling Nauseus it was to make themsleves throw up....LOL if you get my drift..
At times the vomit accompanies the coughing, and just yesterday she threw up the most she's done up to this point, looking like stomach acid and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, no food involved, without coughing. She had a fever for one or two days a couple weeks ago (weeks after the coughing began). It's a little worrisome actually, so any help would be appreciated. She has never had this problem before, no allergies that we know of, all vaccinations are up to date.
my 3 yr old shih tzu vomits yellow bile at times, i give him pepcid at times, i cook noodles with chicken,i make sure that he eats at night,but he still vomits in the morning, i feed him with Nutrish by rachel ray. the vet says that all bld works were all normal. they also ruled out pancretitis. the vet said that i shld try pumpkin to put in his kibbles, but he didn't like it, right now , i'm giving him pepcid everyday. is there any suggestions ?
Antibiotics can be irritating to the GI tract. And cause nausea sometimes, and occasionally vomiting. Some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s are prone to this side effect, others less so. But did you say your dog started with some vomiting before he had the antibiotic? And that the reason for the surgery(and antibiotic) in the first place was because he started vomiting? And it was found he had an enlarged bowel?
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> buildup remedy - TRY IT!!! (: When you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>/phlegm in the throat due to post nasal drip, get some Silver Biotics (it is the only colloidal silver that really works for me) and make a nasal pray with this solution. Don't add anything, just spray your nose 3 times daily, 2 spray in each nostril. It will fix the post nasal drip and allow the mucus to get out your nose.
I have an 8 yr old Boxer, 4 days ago, he was playing ball, going on walks, etc, suddenly he has stopped eating, been vomiting clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> with red or brown specks in it, won't even get up when anyone comes in door. He has never had any health issues. I took him to the vet and was told he has some kind of infection (but no idea why or from what), he has a high white blood cell count, but that was the entire explanation.
Sorry, meant to add, obviously the vomiting and diarrhea are probably secondary symptoms, which means she is picking this infection up from something in the immediate environment. That means something in your home, your garden/backyard area, other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s or other people that she comes into contact with, or her food or treats fed regularly. If you have changed food, try looking at other things she eats (treats) as a first priority.
I think the key points with thick mucus problems are excessive secretion of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> and reduced flow of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, therefore you have accumulated thickened <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> in the throat. In order to reduce phlegm, we need to cut back mucus secretion and clear the mucus flow path. If we can acheive both, we will be ok.
but honestly i dont think thats what it is because i dont have a problem making bowel movements and i dont have prolonged vomiting. The only thing I cant think of now is that I have fillings in my teeth where cavities used to be..and maybe there is infection in one. Or it could be my upper sinuses that sinus sprays cant reach... Im going back to my E.N.T to ask for a flip turn sinus flush...
This parasite is abundant in the environment, especially in standing water (the reason not to let <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s drink from puddles). It is responsive to antibiotic treatment but may need extended dosage. Another problem seen with increasing frequency (since it is a little better understood recently) is Clostridium Perfringens Enterotoxicosis. The anerobic (living without oxygen) bacteria that causes it resides in the stool of many dogs without causing symptoms.
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...
I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Yes, it's not always a sign they are unwell or anything like that. I too, feel that dogs just like to eat grass sometimes! I really do think it's as simple as that. I know there are times when, if a dog feels a little "yucky" it will eat grass. That, I think is similar to the times when a Human may feel a little sluggish internally, and eat a fresh apple, and feel much better afterwards. There are some dogs who vomit after eating grass.
my 3 yr. old female chihuahua started vomiting up a thick white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> n then a little later a greenish liquid. she has not been in a kennel or around other dogs except for our other 3 chis. which seem to be fine. should i take her to the vet? very worried..
Good show! This type of gastritis in young <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s is very common. The first action to take with short onset vomiting is to "rest" the GI tract by withholding food for 12 - 24 hours. This is also an inexpensive diagnostic test. Most dogs will improve as whatever debris or mildly toxic material pass from their GI tract. Those that don't, need veterinary attention. Caveats are very young, very low body weight or very old dogs that should be monitored more closely and acted on more quickly.
just this snorting and a little vomiting (mostly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>). I can also hear a little congestion in his throat. He has been on the antibiotics for 4 days and I am not seeing any improvement, could this be something else? Should I get a second opinion? Thanks!!
You also want to watch for him going through the motions of vomiting without producing any vomit. If you see him doing this, put him in the car and head for the nearest vet. If it's during the night, head for the emergency vet. This action could mean that he is bloating, and that because of the large amount of food in it, his stomach has flipped over on itself and has choked off the entrance and exit to the stomach.
Repeated vomiting breaks up small blood vessels, therefore specs of blood are not uncommon with vomiting in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s. When a dog vomits, we generally withhold food and water for 4-6 hours then start with for example a teaspoon of stage one, organic, pureed chicken baby food, wait 30 minutes and it will either come back up or stay down, If it comes back up, see your vet. If it stays down just increase the amount of food slowly and gradually until your dog is back to normal.
Did he get into any fattening table food recently (like bacon, chicken skin, etc.?). This is often the cause for pancreatiits in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s. That said, it's often seen on ultrasound, and I'm not sure if this was detected when your vet ultrasounded him. Nevertheless, the IV fluids, antibiotics, anti-vomiting and anti-diarrheal medication that your vet is treating him with all sound appropriate and hopefully will get him on the mend soon! Best of luck to him! Keep us posted!
It still would be a good idea to have her checked over by a vet. Vomiting large amounts of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, unexplained neck swelling, loss of appetite, and lethargy are all symptoms which need proper attention. Yes, sometimes dogs have an upset, then get better of their own accord, and we are glad we didn't panic (and run up a bill at the vet's office!) Sometimes that happens. But it is a fine line to balance. In my opinion, anything that is pretty dramatic, of sudden occurrence, or worsening.....
Maintains intestinal function in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s and cats thanks to its unique combination of ingredients: Montmorillonite – coats/ protects the intestines and absorbs toxins.
It is most likely from the bones and/or rawhide. You should never feed your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s cooked bones!! Even a lot of rawhide can cause a problem. Make sure he is drinking water and just try giving him a soft diet. You could try some canned pumpkin, boiled chicken and rice. If it continues, he seems to be straining or you see blood or mucus, get a Vet check and take a stool sample in. Please, no more bones!!
EPO is used in TTC to increase cervical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>. It also lowers cholesterol, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. The active ingredient is cis-linoleic and cis-gammalinolenic acid (GLA). It may take up to three months to see results. Recommended Dosage: Follow the instructions on the bottle, or try 1,000 mg per day. Some recommend taking up to 3,000 mg per day, but this dosage has been known to cause uterine contractions, spotting and delayed ovulation in some women.
I walk him on a leash in my own yard as well. It seems too much of a coincidence to be one that both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>s have experienced this within a week of each other.
Or is it heavy bleeding, unusual in quantity, or stained with greenish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, or anything which could signal an infection? Is she showing any signs at all of being unwell? (Lethargy, shivering, drinking more water than normal, vomiting, off food?) Those could all be signs of Pyometra, but even if she doesn't have those symptoms, she could still have some infection. Pyometra most commonly occurs a few weeks after the heat cycle, BUT it can actually occur ANYTIME.
