Home Care for the Vomiting Dog
Most pets will vomit occasionally. It happens. When it does, many pet owners will call to ask a local veterinarian for advice rather than bring their dog in to the clinic to be seen. I understand why people do this, but vets can't really give you advice without having a client-patient relationship.
Every pet parent should know how to care for a vomiting pet, so I'd like you to read this article.
Vomiting is one of the most common symptoms dogs have. It can be a minor problem or a very significant major problem. As a pet owner, you may not know what to do when this happens, so this article will focus on what you can do for your pet at home.
Here are some of the most common questions pet owners ask about vomiting.
What is vomiting?
Vomiting is the act of expelling contents from the stomach through the mouth.
What causes vomiting?
Vomiting can be caused by a variety of problems including eating too quickly, eating too much, eating something that is not digestible, eating a different type of food, eating spoiled food or eating garbage. Vomiting can also indicate a systemic problem such as cancer, kidney failure, diabetes and other infectious diseases.
Disclaimer: Advice given in the Home Care series above is not meant to replace veterinary care. When your pet has a problem, it is always best to see your veterinarian as soon as possible. But in some cases, it is not always possible to seek veterinary care. You could be traveling, it could be after hours and there are no 24-hour clinics near you, or maybe you simply can't afford it. Whatever the reason, when your pet has a problem, you need answers. Most vets will not give you any information over the phone they will tell you to bring your pet in for an office visit. So, when these difficult situations arise, many pet owners don't know what to do and they end up doing the wrong thing because they don't have sound veterinary advice. When your pet has a problem and you can't see your vet, the information in this series of articles above can help guide you so that you will not inadvertently cause harm to your pet. However, this information is not a replacement for veterinary care.
We hope these tips help you and your new puppy enjoy a long healthy life!!
