Vomiting in dogs symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting in dogs symptoms


Avatar n tn My dog is vomiting. I have a prescription for Ondansetron . It is 4 MG. Can I give it to my dog? He is 13 and weighs 7.9 lbs.
Avatar f tn But I can't seem to control her vomiting for more than a few days. I'm fearing she is in end stage kidney disease given some of her other symptoms (shaking/twitching, ammonia breath). I think I'm looking at quality of life care at the moment and am heart broken. Can anyone give me some direction or shared experience on how to deal with this? My vet won't give me Cerenia long term.
82861 tn?1333457511 Apparently this extrapyramidal reaction occurs in people as well, and in two cases reglan was directly tied to mental changes that led to suicide. Have you ever come across anything like this in your practice? With other nausea meds being completely out of our budget, we've begun using reglan injections. No side effects to speak of except for about 15 minutes of a little restless behavior, and then she's fine. It very effective on the vomiting as well and usually lasts a full 24 hours.
Avatar f tn In the beginning of all this his white count was at the high end of normal, but dropped quite a bit after 10'days on the antibiotics, so our vet is also convinced that it's some kind of infection causing his symptoms. Either an infection in his liver or his intestines. We are not in a position to do invasive diagnostics due to our dogs age, so we are just hoping the antibiotics work.
Avatar n tn She has been sick since Sunday and has been diagnosed with pancreatis, which apparently is a common problem in dogs with Cushings. Currently she is in the hospital on IV fluids and IV antibiotics. We are very fortunate to have a very good local vet and her condition does seem improved, but we always have the option of taking her to University of PA veterinary hospital. They are wonderful compassionate people there and have been life savers for some of our other animals.
7746659 tn?1393923237 I would have to do some reading up on this issue in dogs. 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.
Avatar m tn While phenergan is usually prescribed for people, our vet tells us it can be used safely for dogs. Since I have terrible nausea and vomiting troubles myself, I always have some in the house for the occasional doggie illness. There is always something else to try, so don't be afraid to ask. And don't forget to post back and let us know what your vet says.
Avatar n tn Can dogs get sick from being cold? If so what are the symptoms? Is puking one of them?
Avatar n tn I think she is about to go in heat because of the way she is cleaning herself..... most importantly she is affraid of going up the stairs, or around the pool deck two steps... she threw up this morning a yellows fluid kind of like egg yolk.... what can this be... could this be related to the heat season???
4487133 tn?1355335664 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 dogs 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.
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.
Avatar f tn I do hope the vet suggests some good treatments and help for your dog, to relieve symptoms. There have been some good posts and information on this forum for dogs with kidney failure (including good diets/nausea treatments/management of symptoms) Try going through the Archives, and put "Kidney (or Renal) Failure" in the search box.
Avatar f tn I have a dog that is possibly lab and golden retriever. I just acquired him and in the past he was hit by a car. It seems like his hips give him some problems after he runs, jumps and plays. Is it okay to give him Ibuprofen for pain relief?
Avatar m tn what is anti-freeze poisioning, what are the symptoms? we live in the country and dogs run free, we noticed our Australian Shepard dog had a swollen abdomine, was still energetic and was eating. so didn't think much about it. Found her dead one afternoon, then our Jack Russell had the same symptoms and dies all of a sudden. Now we find that our neighbor gave them anti-freeze, he made friends with the dogs and even gave them his scraps.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Went home, bleached the entire home and yard, and quarantined the younger dogs and older dogs in separate areas. We have been monitoring the dogs at home to see if they started to exhibit any symptoms, which none of them had. On 7/5/12, the vet office called and said our 9mo puppy had improved and could be picked up that day.
Avatar n tn The vet wasn't very helpful in the area of the bad breath or gas, said both dogs need to lose a few more pounds but otherwise their ok. I don't agree, both dogs just haven't been themselves for the past couple of months.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys. In kidney disease the kidneys are damaged and cannot excrete excess phosphorus, which then acts like a toxic substance in the blood. Reducing phosphorus intake is therefore important (check all the foods you may be feeding, including treats, for phosphorus content). The additional way of controlling it is to introduce a phosphate binder.
Avatar m tn Our other dog got in the trash he had something stuck in his stomach. He went from 15lb to 8 lb in a few days. He went in for surgery and came out in bad shape but survived. He is a sissy compared to Mabel.
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.
Avatar f tn I have severe coughing along with the clear thick liquid coming up during dinner if I eat normal speed, If I lay flat, no matter what I eat. I have tried an all liquid diet, Baby food type diet, and eat everything I used to eat diet. I had a lap band put on 4 years ago and this started shortly after. I can be asleep and cough and the fluid shoots out of my nose and fills my mouth. There is never food just clear thick fluid.
Avatar m tn Has your dog had it's shots? This sounds like the parvo virus many dogs get when they have not had there shots. if this si the case you still have time get him the shots ASAP!
874521 tn?1424120397 Food allergies only account for 10 percent of allergy problems in dogs. Dogs often can not tolerate soy products, wheat, corn, beef, pork, chicken, milk, whey, eggs, fish, chemical preservatives, or artificial sugars in their food. Determining the food allergen can be time consuming. First, eliminate all the possible allergens from the diet, by using a home made diet consisting of a protein and a starch the dog has not eaten before.
Avatar n tn I don’t have anything like that in my immediate area or any other hazardous chemicals for that matter. When I have my dogs in the fenced-in yard I am mostly always there with them, with the exception of a few minutes here and there. But even if someone had thrown something into the yard, he’s not the type of dog that would eat whatever was thrown in. My other dog would be the one to do that, but she is okay. Do you have any idea what may have caused such a violent reaction?
Avatar m tn His life depends on you resisting that temptation. Since he's back to vomiting in the mornings, withhold food for at least the rest of the day. You could possibly try a little plain rice in the evening. Hydration is important, but in severe cases dogs can't even keep down water. When that happens, your dog must go to the hospital for IV support. You and your dog are in a terrible position.
Avatar m tn Is there any puncture wound or any visible small wound on her nose? Dogs will often sleep, or try to sleep if they are feeling unwell, nauseous, or in any pain. It's an instinctive thing, they are trying to 'sleep it off'. Otherwise, I am unsure what this could be. If after a few hours, she keeps the food and water down, and after sleeping a while seems better, then you can assume she just had an upset of some kind.
Avatar m tn The best broth is home-made bone broth, but if you have to use canned broth, it is okay. Some dogs will drink Pedialyte or Gatorade in place of broth, which is also okay, but mine won't drink it. After he can hold down broth (or if you didn't have any broth, after he has been holding down water for at least eight hours), try giving him SMALL amounts of low-fat, easy-to-digest food, like cooked white rice, cooked lean meat, or hard-boiled egg.
Avatar m tn Chewing and swallowing non-food objects (typical for a puppy) can result in a fatal bowel obstruction. The vomiting has gone on too long so please get professional help!
