Vomiting in nursing dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting in nursing dogs


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.
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.
298029 tn?1211192440 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?
Avatar f tn 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?
369472 tn?1198749292 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.
Avatar n tn It hasn't completely gone away since and this started last wed evening. On sat evening the gross burps and diarrhea/ vomiting started to top it off I'm still in a crazy amount of pain! I see the doc on Thursday morning so, if he has a diagnosis I will b sure to post it. I feel all of ur pain.... literally!
Avatar n tn I have a 6 year old that has now been vomiting in his sleep in November last year. At first if was for 2 nights in a row when we were on holidays. Always at 3 am in the morning. We suspected stress from being away from home and being and on the move a lot during the day visiting family and friends. Being from a remote town and travelling to a city we had eaten a fair amount of junk food like pizza and fish and chips when we first got into town.
1924744 tn?1322847970 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
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.
1623561 tn?1299944237 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.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar f tn Has anyone had any experience of such a drastic change in mental health following this an op. If so, what caused it and how has it progressed?
1436598 tn?1332900133 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.
18226532 tn?1463520489 I've seen that play out right before my eyes with my own dogs. With 2 other dogs in our pack, we had to keep a close eye on things and had to intervene a few times. It's a hard thing to see amongst formerly bonded pack members, but you can't take it personally. Definitely check out the Chronic Kidney Failure group. Tony has a ton of great advice based on solid research that can help maintain what kidney function remains.
254215 tn?1195096984 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
390388 tn?1279639813 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
1708784 tn?1356226014 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
730826 tn?1317946934 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.
184674 tn?1360864093 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.
Avatar f tn I've been dealing with the same problem I live n Ohio I feel like it is killing me I am trying to to find different ways I find myself using chemicals to take a chemical bath and it says right on there and hazardous may cause cancer it has the skull with the two lines on it I just don't know what to do anymore they are now in my eyes covering them in my ears I felt them all over my body I caught them at Flint Ridge nursing home in Newark Ohio I'm scared why do they attack me and not my husband o
Avatar n tn Thankfully she was heartworm NEGATIVE in May of 2013. So in reading about lyme vaccine it should be used in healthy dogs...Because of Chloe's hx of hearworm and that treatment ...I'm not sure if she qualifies as 100% healthy...and I remeber having Chloe home the nite of her first of three shots for heartworm...she became so lethargic I could barely wake her....her heart rate was very, very fast, and she felt cold to me...I thought she was surely going into shock..
320329 tn?1297772552 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!
6839387 tn?1385681693 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.
