My Puppies Are Going On 3 Months And They've Been Throwing Up, What Does It Mean?

Postby Enda » Thu Sep 21, 2017 11:37 am

A very common problem that virtually all of us see as dog owners is dog vomiting.

There are potentially many different causes of dog vomiting. The most common cause is garbage gut, where your dog consumes something he shouldn't have, resulting in vomiting. Other causes include food allergies, parasites, medications, infectious causes (i.e. parvovirus), cancer, liver or kidney disease, pancreatitis, metabolic disorders (thyroid disease or diabetes), physical obstructions such as a ball or a bone, and primary motility disorders (the stomach doesn't contract normally).

Any vomiting dog must be evaluated for dehydration. If your dog is vomiting persistently and unable to retain even water, wait no longer than 24 hours before going to your veterinarian. This indicates a severe problem, such as an obstruction, that needs to be treated with IV fluids and possibly surgery. If your dog is still consuming water and occasionally vomiting, then you can try some of the home remedies.

Fasting. A 24 hour fast is the most important thing you can do to allow your pet's inflamed stomach to heal. Allow access to controlled amounts of water, but no food. After 24 hours offer bland food such as plain cooked white rice; give equivalent amounts of rice as you do dog or cat food. After 48 hours mix their regular food with rice and don't fully go to regular food until after 72 hours.

For Food Allergens. For dogs and cats with chronic vomiting, I strongly recommend a diet change. Preferably switch to a hypoallergenic food or homemade allergy diet. At the very least, change to a premium quality food - I find that some pets respond to a more natural diet. In light of the recent Pet Food Recall, paying close your dog?s diet is even more important than ever. For a list of recommended foods, join my membership site, Dr. Andrew Jones' Inner Circle (see links below).

Homeopathic. Nux Vomica is an effective homeopathic remedy for dog vomiting. Give 1 tablet of the 30C strength per 40lbs once daily for 3-5 days.

Herbal - Ginger. A tasty addition for a curry is also effective for vomiting. The dried herb dose is 25mg per lb or 1 drop per lb twice daily of the tincture.

Acupressure Point. The ST36 point, located on the outside of the hind leg below the knee may be effective; press it for 1 minute twice daily for 3-5 days to see if it helps.

Flowers to the Rescue: Bach Rescue Remedy can make your pet feel a little better about their illness. Give your pet 3-4 drops by mouth every 6 hours.

Herbal - Chamomile. This is commonly used in people with mild stomach upset and it may help your pet. Give 30mg per lb of the dried herb, or 2 drops per lb of the tincture three times daily.

The treatments I covered may be all that you need for now. But I guarantee that you will use many of the thousands of at home remedies in my book.

I use them every day in practice. They work. No side effects.

You should try it.

To your pet's good health...

definitely. you can never just change brands, especially on a puppy.


and, puppies should be getting 3-4 smaller meals a day. and by the time they are 1 1/2 to 2 just one meal. so make sure you are giving the proper amount.

being responsible means knowing when you will run out of food and getting more. this can be very detrimental to the digestive system of all dogs, but especially young ones.

it may be b/c you changed the food as this should be done gradually over a 2 week period, but can also be parvo as others have suggested. take them in to be seen and tested at the vet

you need to contact a vet asap, it could be early signs of parvo, or it could be various other things

Our clinic has been seeing alot of parvo lately so I would get them tested especially if they seem depressed and/or have diarrhea.
Even puppies that have had a couple of vaccinations can get parvo.
The food change could certainly cause vomiting but at this age I would really be concerned about parvo. Some breeds of dogs are far more sensitive to parvo than others.
If you came into our clinic with a vomiting 3 month old pup the first thing we would do is a parvo test.
If the test was negative, we would do a fecal exam as some intestinal worms can cause vomiting.
If they are unable to keep down fluids they will quickly become dehydrated and could die.
So, I would take them to you vet for an exam.

vomiting would not be from a food change. you should call the vet and report any other symptoms and ask for advice.

DEFINITELY the parvo test!!! :O Also, in my area, there is a virus been going around that has similar early signs to parvo, but is much more treatable and doesn't cause the same damage. It does start with vomitting and then diarrhea, though. The biggest danger is dehydration.

The best diet for any dog is a raw, balanced diet. Commercial food has been on the market for only 60 years, and it's a big money-making industry. Look on the back of the bag and ask yourself, "what use does my carnivore have for corn, grains, and fillers?"- most of which are common allergens :P

Anyone wanting to dispute this with me is welcome, but do your research first... you'll be hard-pressed to find any good reasons not to raw feed. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...

recommended reading: "Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats, The Ultimate Diet" by Kymythy R. Schultze. It's easy to read for beginners and dispels all of the more common myths, and explains the "WHY?" of rawfeeding before going into the "HOW?" part n_n

Good luck, enjoy your pets!

My puppy is close to three months also, and he vomits occasionally( but so did my other dogs when they were puppies).
I believe it is due to the fact that they like to explore and eat things they should not.
Also, my puppy likes to gobble his food and not chew properly at times.
Good Luck

What is he throwing up? If there is blood in it find an emergency vet. Other wise take him out to some grass that you know is clean and free from pesticides if it is just something bad he ate and has an upset tummy he will eat the grass and it will usually make him barf again but will bring up what is making him feel bad. If he is throwing up yellow stuff with foam this is usually what happens when their little tummies are empty. Has your puppy been dewormed? Worms will also make a puppy throw up. Take him out to eat some grass and watch him carefully and check to see how he goes to the bathroom. If there is blood in his stools or in his vomit take him to the vet. Dogs eat cat feces all the time , they shouldnt but they like the taste I guess. Make sure he drinks plenty of water and keep checking his stools and what he throws up. The grass should do the trick. Even though it is none of my business but maybe not leave dead rotten snakes laying around where the puppy could get them.
