Ok. My pup is 5 months old. Last night she woke at 4:30am to go potty and her face was wet and a pile of foam in the crate - she has lost about 3 teeth on bottom this week FYI.
She threw up after eating a little breakfast and so I took her to Vet. They gave her a shot of cerenia. I asked if it was her teething and she said no. But I always heard teething can cause vomit and diahhrea?? Is there any truth to that?

So all day sheís been gagging and i think the techs held her too tight to give the shot even though they said itís from throwing up bile. So tonight she went to eat a little jumped back from the bowl ran spit basically and then shook her head fast and gagged and started rubbing her face all over the floor. That lends itself to me thinking her teeth may hurt. Or something bad is happening? . Can anyone give me any experience at this stage. I have no memory of puppy teething it was 13-14 years ago. Any of this sound familiar?

Thanks in advance. Merry Christmas. I feel like itís gonna be a tough xmas and debating on going to my moms.

Thanks
Lisa

When Molly was teething I just made sure she had plenty of things to chew on like soft stuffed toys, puppy nylabones, and frozen wet washcloths. If you are feeding kibble it is a good idea to moisten it with water to make it softer to chew in case her mouth hurts. As far as vomiting goes you can switch to a bland diet until her tummy settles down. Boiled chicken and rice is always good. Baby food chicken works great too. Some dogs vomit foam or bile when they have an empty tummy. If this continues to be a problem I would discuss it with your vet. A small biscuit treat before bed might help. Good luck with your little one and Merry Christmas.

I have owned two Havanese at different times who both went through teething. Nothing like you describe ever occurred. Did the vet tell you what was going on? Our first Havanese was "gagging" and it turned out to be kennel cough she contracted when we left her with a breeder for a few days. Even though you can vaccinate for it, there are so many different germs that can cause it, it is not a guarantee they will be protected.

If the vomiting persists, I would seek another opinion at an emergency clinic which may be the only place open through the holidays. Good luck, and wishing you the best.

I agree with the others who have posted. I've never heard of a dog getting can upset tummy from teething. I seriously doubt that the techs holding her caused the gagging. It sounds like this started before you ever took her to the vet. Along as you are sure she's getting enough fluid (and not losing it, so she isn't getting dehydrated, it may be OK to wait until tomorrow when the regular vets are open, but I would certainly be checking in with the vets again first thing in the morning unless she's much better by then.

I have found that emergency vets (like emergency hospitals) tend to be better staffed to handle just about any situation and probably see every kind of issue that could arise. It's comforting to get a second opinion as well. I guess it depends on your area, but we have always been happy with the emergency vets. Our Havanese prior to Tux had issues due to a hole in her spine, and one thing could easily cascade into another. Murpy's Law required that if our dog was going to fall ill, it would almost always happen on a SUNDAY!
