Default Dog People. need ? help

Disclaimer: at the moment waiting for the vet to call back.


Story: Came home today to find that one of our 2 dogs made a nice vomit mess all over the house. On the first floor were 5 areas of a really nasty white, SLIMY mess. When I went upstairs there were 2 spots on the bed they sleep in that were brown and had some undigested food in them.

Both dogs have been behaving normally since I got home; although one did vomit up some grass a little while ago. That is nothing new since he does it all the time anyway.

Anyone have any experience or thoughts as to what it could be? Both dogs are 9 years old, 1 male Siberian, 1 female mutt.

If they are eating grass, they have an upset stomach. And that is alot of vomit for a dog.

Yes it is a LOT of vomit from what they have ever done. I am guessing my Siberian to be the culprit. He has always been a grass eater and vomit afterwards, but what I came home to today is like nothing I have ever seen.

Give them some plain yogurt in there food. Go to the grocery store and buy some. then mix it in there dinner. That will cure the upset stomach.


FYI this is what my vet told me to do with my dog when ever he has an upset stomach.

ok this is a little more than just an upset stomach. That would produce normal vomit. This was a LOT of vomit which was white and foamy in nature and SLIMY as all shit. They have never puked up anything like this before in the past 8.5 years.

Also the white foamy slimy stuff is not vomit. That is just excess saliva that is produced during vomitting.

For there age I would definetly take them to the vet for some tests. Our lab was doing the same thing about a year ago. We took her into the vet and found out she had some kinda toxin in her system. Took 3 days of IV medication and they were still not sure if it would help her. Luckly it worked out and she is fine.

hmm toxin would be interesting one. Not sure how they could have gotten it though.

talked to the vet and they said to not worry unless a change in occurs.

That was an awful lot of vomit/ saliva/ whatever though.

My dog does this a couple times a year, the vet has told me that being as he has the short snout and joules that he is prone to have sinus trouble and that most of what he is puking up is snot. Sounds the same, we give him liquid benedril and he stops. Then baby them for a day or two with boiled chicken and rice in with their food, or like big country said some yogurt would do the trick too.

Or white rice and cottage cheese. I have Siberians that do the same thing. Not that much or often. We give them some bland food for a few meals and it usually helps.

My Lab who is 10 did this for 3 days after she had her distemper shot.. A LOT more than ever before.. Took her in and they said she had kidney failure and they did a xray and said there was something pushing on her stomach.. Spent 500 dollars.. Took her home.. Gave her benedryl and put her on a low protein diet.. Been fine ever since..
My friend dan's big german shepard just started doing this about 2 weeks ago with nothing to provoke it like going to the vet or anything.. Same thing.. On a yougurt food diet.. Puked like that for 4 days.. It stained their carpet worse than anything I've ever seen.. Dog has been fine ever since..

Anyway.. Hopefully the vet can tell ya something.. If not more than likely it'll be a antibotic and some bland food for a little while.. Hope they do better

Check your bathtub...is your soap gone? Dogs will eat soap and puke it up! They love eating soap for some odd reason!

or any house plants missing leaves, branches, chocolate from the kids easter baskets missing? Or a missing tylonol. Any of those can make them real sick.

My dog eats flys, ants, spiders. He ate a black widow last fall, he was to quick, couldn't stop him. He got a tube in his stomach and bland food for a week. We were lucky. The spiders are coming back out now that it is warming up outside.

peanuts are not good for them either,

Our female does that once in a while, it's mostly water because she drinks alot when she has an upset stomach. She also has an umbilical hurneia (sp) from when she was born, that pops out and goes in on it's own but that's part of her stomach problems.

I handled police dogs for many years. My first advice is to not listen to these guys telling you to give them something like yogurt, cottage cheese, etc. unless that is what you normally feed them. The last thing you want to do right now is change their diet in any way unless you stop feeding them at all for a day or two.

Are the dogs chewers? Do they chew stuff out of boredom? Did you find anything that had been chewed up and eaten? Do they vomit after drinking water or attempting to eat? The first thing I would want to rule out is an intestinal blockage. A foreign object that is blocking their intestinal tract. Something they may have swallowed. If that is the case it will kill the dog if it isn't removed surgically.

If it's not possible that its a blockage, then it could be lots of stuff. My next guess would be "separation anxiety". Dogs get stressed out if their "routine" is messed with. If they don't eat when they think they should they get anxious and vomit. Some dogs have separation anxiety so bad they have to be put on a drug like Prozac so they don't freak out when they're left at home alone. Vomiting is often times related to anxiety and stress in dogs (and humans too).

Keep an eye on them. Give them plenty of water to prevent dehydration. If they drink and then vomit within a short time (usually within 1/2 hour or so) then be concerned about an intestinal blockage. If you suspect that, get them to the vet for x-rays.

I watched a 4 year old German Shepherd die because he ate an ankle high nylon that nobody knew about. He died on the way to the vet in alot of pain.

Good luck.

My wife and I find this thread REALLY interesting since our Jack Russell started puking more about a month ago. Same type of light yellow slimy foamy junk.

Although we changed foods around that time. We took her to the vet today and had some blood work done and told us her liver count was up. And also told us that another possibility was an ulcer that was reacting different to her food.

Any one change their food recently? I find it interesting how other dogs have started puking more lately as well.

My lab used to vomit like that sometimes. Think of the clear stuff as dry heaves. They keep gagging and throwing up without anything but stomache fluids and saliva. He also would go load his dumb ass up with water and do it all over again.

I would, hate to say, agree with Big Country. Yougart in a semi regular diet will help them immensly much as it does for humans.
