Help! Jasper is throwing up...

Oh dear, how many times have I been on the other side of this question.. why can't I think of how to settle his stomach? We came home from going out to find he had thrown up dinner three times , took him out, he ate some grass and has thrown that up 3 times...is there something I can give him to settle his stomach?

Oh dear Missy. The best I've ever heard is to withhold all food and water until it stops and then give him ice cubes or chicken broth frozen until 24 hours have passed without vomiting. After that he needs to go to the vet. Do you know how to check for dehydration? Pull the skin, if it returns to it's shape quickly, you're okay. If it takes a while to return, he's getting dehydrated and then get him to the vet for IV fluids.

Email me if you get in a bind tonight - I'm running out but will check back before bed.
Give him a hug.

Oh...no, poor baby. I don't know Missy, what to give them. Did he eat something different? Just keep a eye on him, you might have to take him to the vet.

Oh Missy, I'm sorry to hear he's not feeling well. What Lisa suggests sounds right. Let whatever is in his system work its way out and then give him mild broth type foods. I hope he feels better soon.

thanks Lisa, and Lynn...no nothing different. he did have a bully stick this afternoon...sometimes those make the boys vomit, sometimes not... this is different though...he is whimpering... he seems to have quieted now...hopefully it will last. Oh he did have one of those dogswell chicken strips... after the fact I read they were sourced from china...could one strip have caused this?

Let's hope it is just a bug. Watch him closely. Most dogs do not seem distressed when they have vomited. Lisa's advice sounds appropriate to me. Write down the emergency vet number in case you need it (so hopefully you will not need it.)

Missy - Maybe he just ate something outside or something? Hope he is fine by morning!

I agree with Ryan. Just monitor him and see if the vomiting stops. You might want to check if he's lethargic though. I would always keep water handy though. If he needs to drink he will.

I stopped giving Bogart bully sticks cause he threw up quite frequently whenever he ate them. He doesn't do that with the Moo Sticks, not once, which come from organically raised brazillian cattle. Definitely something in those bullysticks that caused problems. His poop was even loose which doesn't happen with the Moo Sticks.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...
