*STOP THE VOMITING AT HOME!!*
Greetings from Nelson BC!!
Welcome new subscribers to the 11th issue of Veterinary
Your pet is throwing up her food and/or water. He may be
throwing up bile on an empty stomach. You may not witness
vomiting, but find the evidence on the floor.
The list is large, although the most common cause is garbage
gut. Your pet consumes something he shouldnt have, resulting
in vomiting. Other causes include: medications (Aspirin);
parasites; food allergies; liver or kidney disease;
pancreatitis; cancer; infectious causes (parvovirus);
metabolic disorders (thyroid disease or diabetes); physical
obstructions (a ball or a bone); and primary motility
disorders (the stomach doesnt contract normally).
*ASSESS SEVERITY.* If your pet is vomiting persistently and
unable to retain even water, wait no longer than 24 hours
before ITS TO YOUR VETERINARIAN. This indicates a severe
problem such as an obstruction that needs to be treated with
IV fluids and possibly surgery. If your pet is still
drinking and only intermittently vomiting, you can try some
of these home remedies.
*FASTING TIME.* A 24 hour fast is the most important thing
you can do to allow your pets inflamed stomach to heal.
Allow access to controlled amounts of water, but no food.
After 24 hours offer bland food such as plain cooked white
rice; give equivalent amounts of rice as you do dog or cat
food. After 48 hours mix their regular food with rice and
dont fully go to regular food until after 72 hours.
*A CUP OF TEA.* Peppermint Tea is an old remedy used for
upset stomachs in people. Brew up a strong cup of tea, but
allow it to cool before offering it: give your dog ¼ cup per
10lbs of body weight three times daily; give your cat 1
tablespoon three times daily .
*PEPTOBISMAL.* This is an old standby that can be effective
for dogs. I do NOT recommend it for CATS. The dog dose is
1ml/10lbs of body weight given three times daily for no more
than 7 days.
*FOOD ALLERGENS.* For dogs and cats with chronic vomiting, I
strongly recommend a diet change. Preferably switch to a
hypoallergenic food or homemade allergy diet. At the very
least, change to a premium quality food. I find that some
pets respond to a more natural diet, such as Innova or
Dr Andrew Jones...

Thanks for the info. One of my dogs was vomiting for three days--it was over the weekend and the vet was closed. He wouldn't eat, but he continued to drink water. My biggest concern was that he stay hydrated. The morning of the fourth day (when I was about to take him to the vet), he began again and was back to himself almost immediately. I later learned that by making them fast, if there is any intestinal inflammation, not eating will allow the inflammation to go away (this is one of the things vets recommend with pancreatitis). It worked for my dog--he seemed to know he shouldn't eat.
