Vomiting in dogs is normal every once in a while. However, if you are frequently seeing this happen you may want to take your dog to the veterinarian for a checkup. Below are some helpful ways to prevent vomiting and questions you should ask yourself.
Prevention of vomiting in dogs
- Gradually change your dogs diet. Introducing too many new foods at once can cause stomach issues.
- Dog toys should not be small enough to be swallowed or chewed which can cause gastrointestinal irritation or blockage.
- Don’t give your dog bones. Pieces can break off and cause gastrointestinal irritation or blockage.
- Don’t let your dog get into garbage. Either in your house or out for a walk, don’t let your dog eat random items such as rotting food or fecal matter.
Questions you should ask yourself if your dog pukes
- How many days in a week and how many times each day? Use a journal to keep accurate track.
- Does your dog throw up at different times or is it the same time?
- Does the throw up always look the same? Yes, there are different types of vomiting in dogs.
- Did your dog eat anything different, such as a different brand of dog food? Did you feed your dog human food?
- When was your dog’s last meal or treat?
- Could your dog possibly have eaten something you were unaware of?
