Question Duncan threw up,need advice please!!

While I was at work this morning my sitter called to tell me that Duncan threw up 3 times.Could it have been that he was over fed this am???
He was also in the pool yesterday and drank some chlorinated water,could that cause vomiting?Or maybe he got a hold of something that he wasn't supposed to have,some food or a kids toy?
I have an appt with the vet on Friday.His episodes were this morning so for lunch I gave him half then about 2 hours later gave him the rest of his lunch which he gobbled up.He is drinking and eating normally now and being playful.Any and all advice/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Dot

Dot,

I agree with Kara, just watch Duncan for the rest of the day, if vomiting doesn't come back, I wouldn't rush him to the vet and just wait for your appointment on Friday.

Hope little Duncan will continue to feel well good.

Just monitor him & if he doesnt throw up anymore & he seems ok i too wouldnt rush him to the vet either. Anyone of those things can cause upset tummy.

Thanks all!! He is playing right now and being his old self.He was running around the plants last night,so maybe when he nibbled one,it cause an upset tummy.
Sorry for being a paranoid mommy!!

Smarty also through up this morning. She had her breakfast at 6:00, while I was having mine at 7:30 I gave her a small handfulof GoLean and let her drink the remaining skin milk. About 30 minutes later when we were out in the yard she through up twice. She has been fine all day so I think sometimes it is just there little digestive systems. Plus it is very hot here even in the mornings.

Hopefully Duncan is all better by now.

I would just keep an eye on her - if she is eating and drinking normally and has a good energy level .
It does sound like she might have found something tasty and unhelathy when she was in the plants ..
Never apologize for being a loving conscientious Mommy .. That is why we are here .. - you have someone to confide in and to support you ..

Duncan is most likely just fine!They do tend to eat something once in awhile they shouldn't or sometimes gorge down something too fast etc.Kara and the others all offered great advice.....

Wink Duncan threw up need advice

I find that Racquet will throw up if I give him too much to eat and many treats. He loves to eat and is always looking for more and since he is so active it is hard to find the right balance. Last night he had a big dinner and this morning he threw up in his crate (small amount)
I try to keep him calm before I feed him.
Hope this helps
