Dog is vomiting white liquid / froth

by Anne Lunsford
(Dewey, AZ)

My 3 year old Bishon mix woke up this morning vomiting white froth and liquid which has continued for the last 5 hours. Every time he drinks water, he throws that up within minutes.

He weighs about 30 pounds (overweight).

Please help!

My Online Vet Response for: Dog is vomiting white liquid/froth
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Anne,
Your 3 year old Bichon is suffering from severe gastritis. Acute acid indigestion, ingestion of toxins, pancreatitis, or a partial obstruction may be the cause.

Stop giving him any water to drink. Offer only ice cubes. The more water he drinks, which triggers more vomiting, will only make the gastritis worse.

It is imperative that you take him to a veterinarian or emergency clinic that is open on a Sunday for some blood tests and abdominal x-rays. Hopefully, it is only acid indigestion, but if he is severely overweight, a blood panel would be able to rule out other underlying problems, such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, Cushings Disease, etc.

They will be able to restore his hydration with IV fluids, and calm down his stomach. Once he is stable, then seek the help of a holistic veterinarian for proper diet, homeopathic remedies, and/or supportive supplements he may need to help him lose weight.
