Dog throwing up and seems to be in a lot of pain

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has had this issue. Last night my lab/shorthair got up and started whining and threw up. Throughout the night, she threw up between 12-15 times even thought only a very small amount of liquid was coming out each time. Also, every 30 minutes or so she whines very loud for about 5 seconds. I thought for sure she swallowed something she wasnt supposed to, i took her to the vet and they gave her an enema and took x-rays of her stomach, said it didnt look like there was anything in there that needed to be removed, so they gave her a shot of something, i forgot what it was, and said to keep an eye on her overnight. if she doesnt get better we have to drop her off tomorrow morning for surgery so they can cut her open and see if anything is in there. Has anyone else had a problem like this, and what was the issue? The vet doesnt think something is in her intestines, but said there is a chance. It sure seems like that is the problem though. Thanks

I had the same thing happen to my black lab over the summer. He vomited probably twenty times in about an hours time and would not eat his food, which is what told me something was very wrong. I seriously did not think he would make it to the vet. I took him to the vet, they did x-rays and didn't see any blockage. They gave him a shot to block the pain which would allow him to relax his stomach. The vet also gave him an IV to restore the fluids he lost. They kept him overnight and said if he did not get better by the morning they would have to do surgery. The next morning the vet called and said he was eating again and was back to normal like nothing happened. They think it was a virus or a stomach issue that worked itself out.

Almost exact same thing happened to my GWP last Auguast. Threw up a bunch, quit eating. Brought him in once and they took an X-Ray, which revealed nothing but some gas. Next day he perked up a bit, but the following day he totally went downhill. Rushed him back for more x-rays and blood work. The gas expanded his colon a bunch, and his intestines were all expanded, too. Their guess was a bit of cloth or something was in there (which wouldn't get picked up by x-ray). They were right: pulled out two big hunks of sock that had blocked his digestive tract. Just because they didn't see anything on the x-ray, doesn't mean something isn't there. If he isn't better soon, I'd bring him back and have them run more tests. Blockages are serious business...the sooner they are taken care of, the better off both you and your dog will be.

I had this happen with a dog three years ago. Threw up a bunch one day. Then seemed to get a little bit better but would throw up anytime she ate and/or drank anything. I was thinking she had swallowed something and had a blockage. Took her to the vet and she ended up being diagnosed with Lymes.

We brought her in for surgery last week, turns out she had a 2 inch piece of something plastic stuck in her stomach. The vet said since it was chewed and twisted it was stuck in her stomach, she couldnt get rid of it out either end. She was back to normal the day after surgery so we are very happy about that, but we could sure use that $1000 that we had to give to the vet.

I KNEW it! Glad they found it and she's back to normal. My pup was the same way. Other than the cone of shame, you could hardly tell he'd just had surgery 24 hours prior. His energy came back quick.

Again, I'm glad they fixed her up. And yes, I could have thought of a lot of things to spend that money on, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I had to!

you guys are getting me paranoid! my pup has it going on on the other end, not nearly as severe as you guys are explaining, to a bland diet tonight. I'm pretty sure it was from the beef bone (cooked) i gave him, no more of those...

      Have you ever read the history of SPAM! It's very interesting! 🤭

      Welcome to the forum and thanks for the ice report. I'm sure more reports on other lake will start coming in as more folks brave the ice.

      On the south end... It is ice fishing time!  Some resorts (not all) have pulled out fish houses and it is game on.  Some ice trails are marked and open.  Check weight limits on each ice road as conditions can vary. Resorts who have fish houses on the ice will typically transport you out to their houses using light ice rigs for convenience and safety.   As we often say, ice conditions vary greatly on Lake of the Woods.  Some resorts have trails marked across Four Mile Bay out to fishing areas in front of Pine Island on the big lake.  Some resorts are not quite open as the ice where they go out still needs some time to thicken up.   Watch your favorite resort / outfitter social media pages for up to date info.   Work through resorts and outfitters on the ice, stay on the marked trails for safety, please don't exceed weight limits and drive slowly on the ice. Anticipation is high.  The early ice bite is normally very good!   Please remember to Keep It Clean, pick up everything around you and secure your garbage. On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is frozen up.  Some locals who know the river have been checking ice and ice fishing with some walleyes and saugers in the mix.  As ice thickens, more areas will become accessible. Ice conditions vary and on the river there is current, so much like the lake, we encourage visitors to work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts have been monitoring ice conditions and starting to stake trails.  They are not ice fishing yet, but the ice is looking good and some guides scouting for fish give the thumbs up.  Stay in touch with your favorite NW Angle resort for further info.   Driving through Canada to reach the Angle no longer requires COVID vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App (which is optional).   For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, there are few options.   1.  When ice conditions allow, the snowmobile trail will be groomed and staked from the south shore up to the Angle. 2.  The Lake of the Woods Passenger service provides round trip bombardier service across the lake.   3.  Lake Country Air provides air service to both the south end and NW Angle.

      Any update on ice fishing? Was out on Green yesterday and there was about 5" of ice from the launch. Didnt push it too far. Really slow fishing.    Anyone fished Ann lake in the past year? Update? 
    • Coleman
      You're not fishing too far from home I see.  I was going to pop a couple holes on Saturday to check the status, I'm on the other side of the point.  Did you mark any fish on those bumps?

    • leech~~
      Welcome to the forum.  Those are some pretty specific questions that are best answered by the resorts on the lakes that rent houses. Let us know if you find any good deals! 👍

      I have a story about Elk Lake.  Last spring after ice out, I was crappie fishing out there in one of those shallow back water areas that hold dozens of puny crappies.  I caught over 100 in a couple hours.  I went back a week later, and one of the land owners came down to his dock and told me that a couple days earlier, a flock of pelicans was in there gulping up crappies as fast as they could.  Literally.  He said they would herd them into a corner and then other ones would swoop in with their gaping mouths/beaks and suck em down like a vacuum.  They did this for 2 days straight until there didn't appear to be any crappies left in there.   He said he considered putting a halt to it because they are gluttons and he could tell it was going to make a sizable dent in the crappie population, but he let it go because it was just "part of nature."  Needless to say, when I was back there fishing the second time, I didn't catch a single crappie and I had caught over 100 a week earlier.
