Dog throwing up

Recommended Posts

surfs

Lets start off by stating that my dog is going to the vet today for x rays. However the issue is the my dog has been throwing up everything she eats for the past three days. She is acting totally normal and is the typical lab when it comes to food. She does the dance everytime its feeding time but then three to four hours later up it comes. I've reduced the amount to 1/4 of a cup but that didn't work either. All she is throwing up is her food, no other "things" or the yellow bile, just her food. Anybody have similar experience? She just won't keep anything down but wants to constantly eat and play. Thanks.

Weird. Is she "going #2" normally? I'd be concerned that she might have eaten something she shouldn't (a ball or something).

Please let us know what the vet figures out.

I'd definitely like to hear what the vet figures out.

My dog had the exact same thing this fall. Unfortunately, it went on for 3 months and she didn't make it. The vets couldnt figure anything out. 8yr old yellow lab. We thought maybe lead poisoning from tainted dog food maybe? Your story sounds pretty similar to what we saw. She acted normal, even went out a few times grouse hunting with me. But in the last few days you could really see her fade.

The only thing she could keep down were fried eggs and toast. Not sure what else you've tried.

Well got her back from the vet last week and so far so good. Although the Vet never found anything wrong as the tests were all negative. I did stop feeding her the Nutrisource and have her on soft food. She is still eating like a horse and drink water like she should. So in the end, I'm not sure what she had or has but she's keeping her food down and doing her thing. I'm hoping everything is for the better now but obviously if not, I'm glad the U of M isn't to far and I'm very fimilar with how they do things, fingers crossed!

Very sorry for your loss Augie...I was almost there once and I really don't want to ever be there!! It's unfortuante that we can never say never though~

Just got done with the exact same scenario. Dog is acting normal, wants to eat. My dog would eat and then drink some water. Usually within 15 minutes he is throwing up. Cleaned the water dish thinking maybe bacteria or something, same thing happened. Usually feed two times per day, I increased that to three but spread throughout the day. Seemed to help. The throwing up went on for about a week or better, and now it hasn't happened again.

Poor dog, he would look at you after throwing up like he had done something terribly wrong...not his fault...even though a couple times it was on the carpet! He's been fine since. Weird.

I'm just hoping there isn't anything wrong with the food as in the past. It does seem strange that they are doing this but change it up a bit and they get back to normal. Makes you wonder if by feeding a dog the same food for many years if it actually does something to the GI system at one point or another. Obviously I am not a vet but the human body can and does do miraculous things without medicine. We as humans do and always eat different types of food...something doesn't agree with us, we tend not to eat it again but with dog or pets in general...there tends not to be a whole ton of healthy options. At times one wishes he/she could read the pets mind to a tee to find out what is wrong before it becomes to late. Very tough being a pet owner at times.

Very glad your pup is better. I know that I'm going to keep her on the vet recommended GI soft food for awhile...just a bland type of soft food with beef and rice. She eats it like it's her last meal still, my little moose!

      I picked up a used 2013 Forest River True North 20x8 ice house. I got a decent deal on it but the front jack is having problems. When I try to raise up the tongue I get some loud clicking sounds from the jack and it's not raising. I'm prepared to just buy a whole new jack for it since I assume the internals are stripped but has anyone else a similar problem? This jack is rated for 3500lbs and the tongue weight is well under 1000lbs so I'm pretty disappointed with it. For right now I'm just using my car jack. Maybe I'll need it for the rear jacks.....

      Been a slow start to my season but finally found few decent crappies.They were in 23ft off structure. Tungsten jig tipped with white plastic did the trick to bring them topside. Can't beat plastics, caught tons of fish on just one. You know its on and doesn't fall off. Got some cool footage of the flasher in this video too.

      Got a pickup, wheel house, ATV and portable. Been to (not all this year) Lake of the Woods, Upper Red, and Mill Lacs. Any recommendations for something new? Otherwise may try to get to know the lakes near Garrison.

      5 sauger Saturday, 4 sauger and 3 pout Sunday out of Adrian’s. Started in deeper water, east of the crowd on Saturday. Sunday I moved around a bit, even drove the atv west of the crowd, 34 fow, with no luck. Spent the afternoon and evening in 25 fow near pine Island which was the only place I caught fish Sunday. Resort houses where mostly in 34 fow. Back home now.

      Hello from the NW Angle! Fishing remains consistently strong on the Minnesota side this week. Many species are quick to bite leaving anglers with a very mixed bag at the end of the day. We saw multiple 40+ inch Northern, many Perch, even a Lake Trout among an already strong Walleye bite. 22-24 ft on gravel bottom surrounded by mud has been our best spots. Be sure to charge up any Glow tackle in use, with the increasing snow cover, glow or lighted lures have been hot. Pink/white and gold are also very effective on sunny days. The Canadian bite just keeps getting better! Crappies can be found in 30 foot holes while 22-26 ft flats on break lines have been hot for a Sauger/Walleye mix. Remember to stick to well-traveled trails as most have not been staked/marked as of yet. Until next week!

      Not sure about the resort... But I know Adrians road is like 11 miles out past pine Island and they were plowing farther. Guy from my work was 9 miles out last weekend and did good on 14 inch sauger with some walleye mixed in.  He said there is 24 inches of ice.   I would say to try and get away from the groups.  Good luck fishing.

      Am heading up this weekend... Not sure where we going out of... But like to be away from the groups also. I usually go out of hunters but they are having road issues again. I am sure it will be resolved by Friday.

      Some good news and some bad news over the last week...  good news is that we made more ice!!  Bad news is that the fish keep moving (STAY PUT FISHY'S!!! LOL)!!    I'm finding 12-16" of ice on most lakes, but still practice caution.  I've been driving out on many area lakes with my Suburban but you still need to pay attention to the ice conditions and don't take any risks.  Some of the shoreline ice is a little weird and areas around islands, channels, neck-downs, etc, will continue to have bad ice... something you can expect all winter in some spots.  So, always use caution and don't go venturing "off the beaten path" if you don't know the lake or know where you're going.     Ok, onto the the fishing stuff!  A lot of fish still holding in the shallows, but they are constantly moving.  The additional pressure that the lakes are seeing has the fish more active--and not necessarily active as-in feeding, but more-so just roaming and moving around more.  The vehicle traffic will push fish around, same with the increase amount of holes being cut and just the increase in general fishing pressure.  So, preaching mobility is no longer an option... you have to PRACTICE mobility as well.  You know, the whole "practice what you preach" phenomenon.  Get those augers going and chase down the fish.  The shallow bite can require a lot of holes to find the consistent pattern, but once you figure them out you can hone-in on a more specific area and hammer-home.  Yesterday morning from 8am-11am I went through 4 batteries on my Milwaukee ripping holes, just be thankful the ice isn't 2-feet thick yet so it's a good time to get after 'em!   One thing I've noticed lately is that the fish are really relating to the bends on the shoreline structure.  Seems to hold them a bit longer than traditional flats and break lines.  The bends that have weeds are even better--assuming those weeds are alive and flourishing.  Not much snow on the ice so it makes for easy travel, too... but don't forget the cleats, or you'll know why real-quick!  Punch out those bends both on the edge and up on the shallow portion if there are weeds present.  The pattern has held true on a handful of lakes... Chisago area, Minnetonka, Forest Lake, Clearwater and many others.  Might be onto something... let me know if others find the same thing...   And for presentations, I've been absolutely crushing them on the Pinhead Mino with NO BAIT at all.  The 1/16oz has been deadly on crappies and gills.  An easy bait to fish when staying mobile and no messing with bait or even plastics.  I've had to slow down and finesse some fish with tungsten and plastics too, so don't get me wrong, but it's amazing what that Pinhead will catch! See pics below...   Otherwise I just keep glued to my Lowrance and Navionics chip, or else the Navionics App for my phone and continue to scout out new spots.  Never get complacent and keep searching out new spots.  I'm seeing the spots dry-up faster and faster after you find a "honey hole," so keep looking for that next one!   Some cool temps heading our way... might actually feel like winter in MN for a while! Lol.  I'll be back on the ice Friday-Sunday and I'll check a few more lakes and report back.  Good luck out there and be safe!
