Vomiting in boxer dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting in boxer dogs


Avatar f tn So about 5 days ago my 7 year old boxer /pit mix started having projectile Vomiting. He is fixed he has not had any change in eating habits. He Is pooping some days it is diarrhea and others it is solid. He isn't lethargic he hasn't been acting different. I have not changed his food. When he vomits lately there is no Heaving or warning at all. He will just bee standing there and projectile vomit this god awful smelling Greenish brown Fluid with white specks in it.
1570923 tn?1295683819 Your story sounds very similar to my 7 year old boxer. She stopped eating and has lost 20 lbs in 4 months. She is basically surviving on prednisone (15mg 2x daily). We also had issues with pale gums but not to the point of needing a blood transfusion. However, our dog is a girl so obviously no testicle/penis issues. We do not have our problem under control but we have learned a few things along the way. 1. z/d was THE worst food we have tried her on.
Avatar m tn 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 mucus 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.
1405323 tn?1281121843 lol) i just want to know if anyone else has a boxer who has an upset tummy all the time!!! oh..and those dogs are soooo gassy! i have two of them and..they can stank up a room!! lol thanks!
Avatar n tn my 8 year old female boxer has been vomiting on and off for three weeks last night and this morning is the worst. What can i do? she drinking and eating.
Avatar m tn I would not be taking a female in heat on walks. Is it hot in your area? Could be the heat so keep her cool. Do you know how to take a rectal temp with a rectal thermometer? Anything over 103 might be a concern. Good that she is drinking. She just may be off her food. If any other symptoms develop like loose stools, vomiting, etc you should get her checked.
2186126 tn?1384961026 Prior to taking the meds, she was always happy and interested in a walk - granted always hungry, but vivacious, full of life. After taking trilostane, it's as if she shut done. I feel that in some dogs, the medicine stops their cortisol production and then somehow it triggers something else that causes them to shut down. I've read now that internal medicine veterinary specialists believe in not treating Cushing's and letting it run its course.

1963554 tn?1325451090 It is completely heart wrenching when their time comes to leave us, just as with human friends and family that we lose over time. In the end, all we can do is offer our dogs all the reassurance, love and attention they deserve and be as kind and humane as we possibly can. They need us to be strong and do the right thing ... regardless of how much it hurts us, it's one of the many responsibilities of being a good owner. My heart goes out to you. Give Shaggy an extra hug from me.
10821430 tn?1439584483 OKIE DOKIE..after writing you about the probiotic I just saw your post to 1battymom re:projectile vomiting in a boxer...Kerk2 said"It can't hurt, and might help, but I if you aren't now, you might try some 'acidophulis' (aka 'pro biotics'),in case it is an intestinal virus or bacteria. Were he mine,I would give a 25 billion bacteria count twice a day. More effective if capsule contents are mixed with a little room temp milk.
Avatar f tn The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end.
390174 tn?1200523679 My lab/boxer mix is just 3mos. old and we noticed a bump on her head. She yelps whenever it's touched. Is there any signs that we should look for that may lead to an emergency?
Avatar n tn I have a 4 month boxer and she ingested a chocolate brownie about 6 days ago. Her lymph node on her neck started swelling. I called my vet and was instructed to observe her stool and to bring her in if there was a change. There has not been a change but the node keeps swelling than going down alittle. Her activity has not changed but I am concerned. Her shots are up to date. I have appointment for her Monday. Should I be more concerned and try to have her seen sooner?
Avatar m tn Hi Guys just joined today, my 6 year old boxer Lucy was diagnosed in May with Kidney disease and it was initially thought she was early stage, however having been on Hills KD renal food since then and had more repeat bloods 2 weeks ago we were given pretty devasting results Lucy was given just weeks , we are obviously heartbroken and just want to know when do we call it a day? Her creatinine levels were initially 650, repeat bloods 1 month later 644 and now they are 950!
1321692 tn?1304301671 Well my boxer had the dry heaves and my chihuahua vomited. But I do think it was some kind of stomach virus.
Avatar n tn Sometimes the act of vomiting can cause bleeding in the stomach and subsequent vomiting will have blood in it.It is ok to give her zantac 75 and feed small meals but if she vomits again or act depressed she should be seen right away.
Avatar n tn I have a one year old boxer that we rescued back in March; he is very sluggish, not eating or drinking, and shivers about every 30 seconds, you cant see him shake, but you can feel it. Also, he has bumps on his back. I have an appt for him with the vet tomorrow morning, but I was wondering if there is any advise or if you think i need to take him to the emergency vet. We were there two weekends ago b/c he got hold of something that he should not have eaten.
Avatar n tn Previcox For Dogs Review By James on November 17th, 2010 Previcox is an anti-inflammatory pain reliever that also reduces fever in dogs. This prescription medication is given to dogs that have just received surgery, have arthritis, or for other complications as prescribed by your vet. You shouldn’t give Previcox to your dog if it is allergic to aspirin or is taking other NSAID pain relievers. Your vet can determine if your dog is allergic to aspirin with a simple test if you are unsure.
Avatar n tn A couple of the most important nutrients in a dogs diet are live enzymes and probiotics that they do get in the raw diet. These are vital to a dogs digestive system. Without these in their diet, degenerative type diseases are likely to form. If you cannot or will not feed a raw diet or even a partial raw diet, then you need to supplement with enzymes and probiotics. You can get these as a supplement and sprinkle on his food daily or some dry foods even have it on the kibble as a coating.
Avatar m tn Gilby is a 65lb boxer 11 months, He was stung by a bee last Sunday. We had to take him to our vet Monday morning because his mouth was swelled and he was covered in hives. They gave him iv meds there and had us give him 50mg of benadryl twice a day 10mg of prednisolone tuesday, 50mg benadryl wed and thursday and 5mg prednisolon on wed and thursday. yesterday he started throwing up and has diarrhea he is still drinking and I am slowly giving him boiled chicken every couple of hours.
Avatar f tn If you think about it there are sick dogs in and out of your vet all the time. You bring your dog in and they can easily pick something up. May sound crazy but I always wipe my dogs paws down when we get back from our vet or dog park just to be safe. Try not to worry too much, you can make yourself crazy trying to think about the causes of how your dog got sick. You are taking care of it now and thats what counts. If she is not better, I would bring her back to your vet.
671314 tn?1225771288 I doubt that's the entire problem as a 3 year old boxer should be in great shape unless there is an underlying problem - even on a not-so-great diet. He needs to go to a vet NOW. It sounds like he is dehydrated by now with all the vomiting and should be seen by an emergency vet. Call your regular vet to start the process. Any vet clinic should have an after-hours message on the phone telling you what to do in an emergency, and it definitely sounds like an emergency.
699217 tn?1323442300 It is good to know that dogs cannot take anything we as humans do for pain. My mother in law groomed and reared dogs of all types for over 40 years, gave shots, everything a vet would do except surgery (she is not a vet), and I asked her if my dog could take the ibuprofen, she didnt think it would hurt, but as I said, she is not a vet, so she just probably didn't know like me that it may hurt her. Adrienne, I know how you feel, my dogs surgeries totalled over 1500 dollars, but I didnt care.
Avatar m tn I would even go so far as to give her Gatorade or Pedialyte because they have electrolytes in them which help to keep the body's electrolytes in balance until the crisis passes. If the electrolytes get too far out of whack (as can happen from dehydration) it can disrupt the heart rhythm and become dangerous, so it is especially important to try to prevent her from become dehydrated.
Avatar f tn I have a dog I rescued not to long ago, I was told that she is a boxer/greyhound mix. She was extremely emaciated when we adopted her, and we've been trying to put at least a little weight on her. I know she is part greyhound so she will be a certain type of skinny. But she just can't seem to put on any weight. You can basically see all the ribs and her hip bones.
Avatar n tn On the 3rd day he began vomiting blood(dark brown with small blood clots) It was the weelend so I called a vet out of town I knew and he said yes this was a side effect. I fed him pedialite through a syringe and pepto bismol. Saturday he threw up 20 times. Sunday only 3 times. By Monday he was still weak but not vomiting and was able to keep down small amounts of rice and ground chicken. He barked to go out this morning and seemed more active.
Avatar n tn I know this is an old thread but I am having the same problem with my 65 day old lab/mastiff/boxer. For going on 20 hours of a non stop wet chin. Please help! I live in a tiny town in Alaska where the vet is far. Please help!
Avatar n tn The conclusion was that they had no idea what was wrong. He was not vomiting, and did not have a blockage in his intestines. They said that there was no infection or inflamation, and if it were cancer that he should have been vomiting. But of course, when there is no answer, it all points to cancer. Still no fever and blood work o.k. but he did have blood show up in his stool. Since he would not eat we were giving him injectables at home.
Avatar m tn No further prednisone was given. The leaking stopped within a week or so of antibiotic treatment. The dogs snoring has increased and her breathing at all times has become more labored. She never had any hair loss but we thought for sure she had cushings. We tried selegiline with no improvement, we tried hydrozizine to see if was allergys but that also didn't show any improvement. Panting, SNORING, Eating, Urination, drinking, but NO hair loss.
Avatar f tn She has what I would consider a large adams apple or voice box, whatever that large lump in a dogs throat is!!! I feel really bad for her. When this happens during the day she begs to go outside and when she does, she will eat leaves, vines or grass...anything she can get ahold of. At night she will stay in her bed, but I will hear the clicking and her gulping for a long time. Usually when she has an episode she will have it again several times over the next day or so. What could explain this?
