What To Do If Your Dog Is Vomiting Continuously

When your dog doesn't feel well, it can be difficult to watch. Your dog is your best friend and a part of the family, so when your pal doesn't feel well, you are going to try and do everything you can to make them feel better. If your dog is vomiting and not able to hold down food, it can be very difficult. Your dog may have an upset stomach from something that was ingested, or just has an upset stomach for some other reason. If your dog has been vomiting, there may be a few things you can do to ease your dog, however, if it persists, you should take it to an emergency vet clinic. Read on for some helpful information.

Give Small Doses Of Water 

By giving your dog small doses of water, it can get something into the stomach and prevent dehydration. Giving large amounts of water is only going to cause more vomiting, so you need to only allow your dog to drink very small amounts of the water. If your dog will not drink any water, you may have to give it some water with a syringe, just to get something into the stomach. It may not like the syringe, but it may help.

Allow Your Dog Outside Time

Give your dog plenty of time outside to vomit in the grass, rather than inside of your home, which it may feel will get into trouble for doing so in your home, which may only stress it out even more. Give your dog time outside but keep a close eye out. It's going to eat grass to try and settle the stomach, which may help get whatever is in the stomach out and is going to induce more vomiting. Keep an eye out for choking or any other issues, such as breathing problems.

Watch For Other Signs

Watch for other signs in your dog, such as lethargy, diarrhea, issues with breathing, or any other symptoms that do not seem normal for your dog. If these issues persist, and the vomiting persists, you may need to take the dog to the emergency animal clinic for treatment.

If your dog is vomiting continuously, dehydration can set in quickly. Try to get it to drink some water and watch closely for other health concerns. Take it to the emergency veterinarian for a proper diagnosis and treatment if things do not improve.
