The Vomiting Dog



  • Rachel Friedman 5 years ago

    I have clients who need to be told, gently but firmly, that their dog will not die of dehydration [said when they are being dragged by the dog to the water bowl when working on the idea of loose leash walking]. Getting them to fast in their minds is sometimes tantamount to animal cruelty. Great message, and good advice. You go girl!

    I once owned a dog who threw up every week. I had him tested for everything until the vet finally said "You know, some dogs just throw up a lot".
    So I quite bugging the dog with tests and let him throw up every week. He lived to be 15 years old.

    When I see my dog eating grass, which tells me he is making himself throw up, and he is not feeling well, I bake a potato, let it cool, and then cut it up, skin and all. This seems to do the job. I don't believe in giving my dog white rice, I only give him brown rice

    Good advice. Is my dogs stomach upset all the time? He eats grass all the time?

    kbesley asks:

    Nah, some dogs just like grass, especially new, long grass. It could mean your dog needs more fresh fruit and veggies though.

    I loved the Dave Barry quote. A friend of mine posted on Facebook recently that her dog had eaten her mom's credit card!

    Tracy B Ann's advice sounds DANGEROUS since she is not a vet or a vet tech. If you think there is anything wrong with your pet TAKE THEM TO THE VET. And just because she has been around dogs 16 years does not mean she is qualified to train or give out advice.

    Sally sounds like someone who takes her child to the doctor every time it throws up. Good for the doctor's business but I'm not so sure it's good for the child.
    I like Tracy's common sense home remedies. None of them were new to me, I've read them all in books on home care by licensed veterinarians (something that should impress Sally).

    @ Resoponsible Parent

    If my 6 week old puppy is throwing up i should just ignore it. I DON'T THINK SO! I am going to take him to the vet to make sure there is nothing else wrong with him.

    No I am not impressed I could give a rats ass on what you read.

  • Greta Hall 5 years ago

    Sally - I read this as the title said - about vomiting dogs, not pups. Hopefully you don't really have a 6 week old pup. That's way too young to be away from it's mother.

  • Sally 5 years ago

    @ Greta Hill no it is to not young to be away from its mother. There are many breeders that let them go that early. All of my pups i get are that young and have had NO PROBLEMS.

    I still think this article need work and is not written well!

    In CA you can't adopt out or sell a puppy or kitten until they are 8 weeks old.

  • Sally 5 years ago

    @ Greta Hill that would be a state law then. Not true in all states.
