Although people often treat dog vomiting at home, it can be an indicator of a severe condition or illness. As a pet owner, you may become worried especially if your animal has never vomited before or if he is vomiting daily. At Natural Holistic Health Care in North Miami Beach, we conduct thorough examinations and provide treatment options to make sure your pet stays happy and healthy.
The introduction of a food allergen can cause dog vomiting. Common dog food allergens include dairy, beef, wheat, soy, fish, pork, corn, and egg. When introducing a new food type or switching food, it is important to observe your dog’s reaction to the food. Diet shifting can cause your dog to vomit and have a stomach upset.
Excessive dog vomiting can be a symptom of severe digestive distress. When it happens with other adverse symptoms, vomiting can be a sign of stomach ulcers, liver disease, intestinal parasites, inflammatory bowel disease, or GI cancers. The possible symptoms to watch out for include weight loss, depression, lethargy, vomiting blood, dehydration, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. If your dog suffers these symptoms, contact our veterinarian immediately for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
When dogs experience Pica, they feast on non-food items such as sporting goods, silverware, towels, and other unusual items. Normally, these items do not do well in a dog’s gastrointestinal tract. After ingestion, they can cause harmful blockages that may, at times, require surgery to remove them. If your dog gets these cravings and feeds on foreign objects, visit us at Natural Holistic Health Care to check whether your pet has an intestinal blockage.
