Vomiting mucus in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting mucus in dogs


Avatar n tn We have a male rottweiler who in the last month or so has started vomiting mucus, 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.
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?
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.

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 n tn Bile is usually green or yellow, in our dogs experiences. If it was white and foamy, it could be frothy mucus...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.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old pug is having gagging/coughing due to mucus in her throat. She tries to cough it up but doesn't and has a hard time breathing when this happens, I have been giving her a product "mucus-Clear"..but I;m not sure it is doing any good. Its at its worse when she sleeps as it must gather and then she cant breath so must get up and try to cough it out. I haven't been able to find anything on line regarding thid specific problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated ??
Avatar n tn 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 mucus, 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.
675347 tn?1365464245 interesting ....I just saw it in dogs that hadnt eaten their dinner or hadnt been fed, my dogs 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..

Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I have been experiencing issues with allergies & vomiting for around 10 years! I firstly got to say im so glad i found this vecause ive never known anyone to be expirencing the same thing, also alot of people dont belive me until they see how sick i am! Probably doesnt help that i say im vomiting everyday in the mornings and im a big girl so theyre either like, she too fat to bomit everyday or sge must be pregnant. No i just vomit because of allergies.
1045304 tn?1253385519 Antibiotics can be irritating to the GI tract. And cause nausea sometimes, and occasionally vomiting. Some dogs 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?
Avatar f tn Mucus buildup remedy - TRY IT!!! (: When you have mucus/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.
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.
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.
Avatar f tn 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 dogs 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.
Avatar m tn I think the key points with thick mucus problems are excessive secretion of mucus and reduced flow of mucus, therefore you have accumulated thickened mucus 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.
Avatar m tn 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...
Avatar f tn This parasite is abundant in the environment, especially in standing water (the reason not to let dogs 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.
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 n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn my 3 yr. old female chihuahua started vomiting up a thick white mucus 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..
1407641 tn?1281378894 Good show! This type of gastritis in young dogs 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.
Avatar n tn just this snorting and a little vomiting (mostly mucus). 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!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Repeated vomiting breaks up small blood vessels, therefore specs of blood are not uncommon with vomiting in dogs. 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.
Avatar n tn Did he get into any fattening table food recently (like bacon, chicken skin, etc.?). This is often the cause for pancreatiits in dogs. 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!
Avatar f tn Maintains intestinal function in dogs and cats thanks to its unique combination of ingredients: Montmorillonite – coats/ protects the intestines and absorbs toxins.
Avatar n tn It still would be a good idea to have her checked over by a vet. Vomiting large amounts of mucus, 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.....
Avatar f tn It is most likely from the bones and/or rawhide. You should never feed your dogs 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!!
