I've only had a couple long-living dogs my whole life so I can't say I'm too familiar with dog vomit...which I suppose is a good thing!
But 3 times in the last week Bernie (8 months) has thrown up, and each time it was nearly identical to the food he ate for dinner. The kibble was still whole, slightly swollen from taking on liquid, but surprisingly identifiable.
The first two times it was probably a couple hours after he ate, and both times we were at someone's house so there was more stimulation than usual - I figured it was excited puppy tummy.
But early this morning he threw up again, and this was 12 hours after he ate. Still looked like his dinner.
He's not acting strange, his stool is normal, his appetite is normal.
He eats Wellness kibble mixed with Avoderm canned and a little chicken broth.
I'm just wondering if 1. the food looking undigested is normal for dogs and 2. if there are any natural upset stomach remedies?
I second calling the vet. Please do keep us posted.
Amy - Do you mind sharing what your vet said regarding the whole kibble in the vomit 12 hours later? Bailey is currently on amoxicillin for a UTI and this morning he vomited a couple pieces of whole kibble this morning. I am hoping it is just an upset stomach from the med, but it is quite strange for kibble to still be that whole after that amount of time!
I am going to be calling the vet tomorrow morning to get her opinion. I was just wondering if your vet had an explanation.
Thank you for replying Amy!
I just spoke with our vet and she stated that she was not concerned at all with the undigested kibble in the vomit. She stated that Bailey's stomach acid is upset right now due to the meds and that the kibble in the vomit was not a concern at this time. She said if he continues to vomit, then she is inclined to change his meds.
Bailey is feeling better today. No vomit, food is staying down and he just looks better. He is resting right now, but had more energy this morning.
