6 Month Old Havanese is Vomiting

Hey Everyone.

I have a 6 month old male havanese I got him when he was 6 weeks old. He is a great dog and I love him so much.

My dog late last thursday night vomitted up his food at a neighbours house when we were having a doggie date with another havanese. I didn't really think anything of it I just thought he was playing to hard. When I brought him home he ate alittle more and we went to bed.

He then woke me up at 6 am b/c he was trying to vomit. I put him on the floor and he did it. Every 20 min after that he was vomiting. I called the vet and they told me to bring him in right away. So I did.

My dog vomitted about 9 times before our appointment.

The vet gave him an IV b/c he was dehydrated and he was given 2 anti vomitting shoots. They wanted him to stay over night.

I said no. But they told me that these drugs will ware off in about 4 hrs after that u must give him water, if he vomitts then he has to come back. So 4 hrs later I gave him an Oz of water, he kept it down. Then 10 min after that I gave him another oz. He kept it down.

Later that evening I gave him soft food and water. 3 days passed and he was doing fine.

3 days later he again vomitted in the evening. Then after we went to bed he woke me up at 12 am and vomitted.

It has now been 2 days and he has not vomitted.

Can anyone tell me why he was doing that? his checkup was great, lungs, heart, weight was the same, and temp was normal.

Is there anything I should have checked out?? like blood test or poop sample?

Please get back to me. ( he personality is still the same playing and running around. His appitite is good and bowel movements are normal).

tks.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum!

Maybe he is vomitting because of allergies? Not sure... Your vet didnt have any advice??

Where abouts in Canada are you?

No not really, she said if I want to bring in a poop sample or have a blood test done. He is eating the same food and treats since he was 6 weeks old.

is it possible to develop an allergy after 5 months of eating the food?

I am from Toronto.

This does not sound typical to me. How is he doing otherwise? Is he playing,, peeing, and pooing as normal. Does he have an appetite? How much does he weigh? Is there anything that the 2 days he vomited have in common? Was he playing outside on the second day too? Could he have gotten into something that upset his stomach? If he is not vomiting today, perhaps you can start a diary so if he vomits again, you might be able to see the common thread.

There is no difference. His personality is the same, he is eating, drinking, peeing and pooing normal. attitude is normal. He is 15 lbs, didn't lose weight. not feeing him anything differently. He eats nutrience (all natural dry food) and Natural balance (wet food).

The only day he did not play was the day he went to the vet. Day before he was playing and the day after. Then 3 days later when he vomited again he ate, drank and played.

He is not over fed or under fed, he has a great attitude. He didn't get in to anything I am 100% sure.

Is it possible he had like the flu? or was sick? but would not his temp be high?

I am a little worried. what about acid reflux? The vet didn't really have anyting to say. It is a great vet i have been going there for over 20 yrs.

I just hope my puppy is ok now.

There is a ton of blood work that you could do, but I am not sure I would do it yet. If you had a case of viral gastroenteritis, you most likely would not spike a fever. And lets say, you overate a couple days later, you may vomit a couple more times.

Perhaps you need to just watch him carefully. The blood work can always be done and if there is no diarrhea, I do not see how a stool sample would be useful at this time. At any point you want to have blood work done, your vet should be willing to do it just for a baseline level.

sometimes like babies they just get an upset stomach. I remember when Mollie was little she got sick a couple times and it was scary to see her like that cause you feel helpless you dont know what to do.

Hugs and have a Hava day!

There are some conditions that would produce chronic vomiting so make sure you have some basic blood tests drawn if he has another episode soon.

It sounds like you are very much on top of it and that is why you posted here.
