Vomiting

Missy dog vomits when she eats or drinks.  She can only keep down white rice and small amounts of water at a time.  Her stool is normal and stomach isn't hard.  I am concerned at she can't continue to just eat rice.  I tried boiling hamburer and putting a little in the rice but she vomited that too.

A pet not able to hold anything down, needs to be seen by a veterinarian asap.  There is a primary or secondary GI problem going on.  Some can be easily fixed, some are more involved.  Without diagnostics and therapy, a perforation of a GI organ can occur and severe, possibly deadly results ensue.  Please have her examined by a veterinarian asap.

She is able to keep rice down 3 times a day and is also able to keep large amounts of water down now.  Also is able to eat white bread.  I am feeding her 3 times a day to make sure she is getting enough to eat.  If she had a blockage nothing would stay down or come out would it?  Her stomach is soft to touch and stool is normal.

Jake:  this is a serious matter.  Just one example is inflammation of the pancreas.  This can cause a dog to die in a matter of hours.  On the other end of the scale is a simple inflammation of the stomach.  But in any case, as Dr. Mathis said, this is a matter for a doctor to diagnose and treat directly.  

Also much to discuss afterwards like diet, follow-up treatments, prevention of the problem and so on.  

Please get your dog in today!
