Vomiting

I just got home from a 2 day conference last night, Sophie had a rare time away from me and stayed home with a puppy sitter. When I got home she vomited her dinner and then seemed better again. But now it's 6 am and she vomited again and looks like an Eeyore puppy.

I had just started changing her from chicken to beef which I do gradually over a week or so but sitter said she gave her some beef with the chicken one meal and last evening gave her all beef.

Of course I will call vet when they are open but since I'm up and freaking out mom hoped someone could tell me if this vomiting could be result of food change? I know they can get an upset stomach but I've not experienced it so don't know if it can be like this. She vomited her full dinner last night which would have been a couple of hours after she ate and now again at 6 am (only thing she's had since I"ve been home is a tablespoon of pumpkin and some probiotics). Anyone experience a sick pupper from abrupt food change?

I did.when switching Chi Chi's foods a while back she repeatedly vomited the whole meal as Sophie is doing. However, she never looked or acted sick. Would go back to playing as soon as the episode was over. We took her to the vet anyway but he found nothing. Hope Sophie is okay.

Tucker always got diarrhea with an abrupt diet change, and beef did that to him, in itself, too. I quickly learned to avoid doing that.

I would think that maybe being away from you for the first time might have given her a touch of the nerves, and a change of diet on top of that may have just been too much and upset her digestive system.

Kodi gets upset tummies from time to time. My vet has me give him 1/2 Pepcid. Of course I'd check with the vet before doing that, but now that we know that it's something that "just happens" with Kodi (often in response to getting anxious about me packing, or just after I get back)

Kodi is very obvious when his tummy is bothering him, because he starts licking the floor, with his tail down! (The vet told me this is very common in Goldens... He'd never seen a Havanese do it) In any case, a half a Pepcid usually has his tummy feeling better in an hour or so, assuming no underlying illness.

Thank you! I would have thought vomiting from food change would be more like Chi Chi, so am a little worried this is something more.
Sheri I have been watching for diarrhea too but haven't seen anything one way or the other yet, sitter said her stools had been normal. You could be right about the nerves too, she has stayed home with "Aunt Kelli" twice and she goes nuts when she sees her, and Kelli said they played Saturday a lot but it's still a stress for her to have the change in her routine so could be that both as you say together may have tipped her over edge.

I am never leaving her or the house again.

Thanks Karen! Poor Kodi. Good you know what it is though and what to do for it. He and Sophie sound a lot alike in their allergies and sensitive constitutions

Sophie didn't lick the floor but she did lick her foot a lot during this not sure what that was about. Her tail definitely was down though that is the first red flag I saw.

This morning when she started to vomit I did the famous fly out of bed from a deep sleep in 0.2 seconds at the sound of a puppy preparing to hurl and we went to the back yard where she trotted herself halfway down her 16 foot long agility tunnel and decided to do the deed right there. That is going to be fun to try to get to to clean up.

I hope this is just from the food change and she hasn't eaten someones diamond earrings or something! Very strange seeing Sophie subdued

Good luck at the vet. Hope it's something minor and temporary.
