If your dog is vomiting, you may be searching for ways to make him feel better. Especially if you have no idea what's making him sick, this could be rather worrisome.
According to Anmarie Moucha, a trained veterinary nurse at DodoVet, there are a number of potential causes for your dog's vomiting.
Dogs should always be closely monitored if their owners detect they have vomited. The severity of your dog's vomiting, however, will depend on how frequently it occurs.
Most of the time, dogs vomit after ingesting something they shouldn't have. It could be a toxin or something inedible like a sock or a toy item.
Parvo, pancreatitis, various malignancies, acid reflux, and food bolting can make a dog vomit. Systemic illnesses can cause dogs to vomit.
A dog that vomits white foam is vomiting a combination of saliva and stomach acid. Causes include acid reflux, bacterial infections, pancreatitis, and indigestion.
In the event that your dog is vomiting a yellow liquid, it is likely stomach bile. Whenever there's nothing in his stomach, he tends to throw up.
It's an emergency if your dog throws up what looks like coffee grounds; this is a sign that he or she has ingested blood and is vomiting it up.
If you catch your dog puking, it's not always an emergency, but it should be taken seriously. Get him to the vet if he has other symptoms or vomits other substances.
