Contact your regular veterinary hospital ASAP and manage their diet in the meantime
- If your regular veterinary hospital is open, contact them now. If they are closed, it is probably safe to wait until morning. During your call, be sure to tell them what else is going on in addition to the vomiting.
- In this case, it is the other symptoms you have selected in combination that makes this a high priority situation.
- Monitor your dog closely for any new symptoms or changes in behavior. Contact an emergency hospital if your dog:
- Vomits more than 3 times within 24 hours or persists for more than a day
- Projectile vomits
- Becomes very lethargic
- Doesn’t pass stool for more than a day
- Can’t keep water down (or drinking causes them to vomit)
has very pale or white gums
- Develops a bloated or swollen abdomen
- If you are going to the vet soon (i.e. within 12 hours), do not feed your dog, as your vet may perform diagnostics that will yield better results if your dog has an empty stomach.
- If you won’t be going to the vet until the next day, you can encourage them to eat with a bland diet of rice and boiled chicken.
