Dog throwing up yellow liquid that turns out to be urine or vomit is a common ailment among small dogs. It can result in significant losses of nutrients. The disease can affect a wide variety of breeds from the miniature dachshund to the bulldog. Most dogs show signs of vomiting within a couple days of ingestion of urine or vomit. It is a good idea to contact your vet if vomiting persists for more than 24 hours. However, if your dog vomits often, or just doesn't seem to gain weight despite a healthy appetite, then your dog is a likely candidate for this disease.
You can also call the vet and tell them your dog was eating solid food and vomited yellow liquid. That can sometimes help narrow down the diagnosis.
The problem is that most dogs just don't want to vomit, as it is unpleasant and it may smell up their food. They also need to clear out the digestive tract before they can eat and gain weight. Therefore, they won't usually show any signs of illness. Their only option is to wait until they are full, and throw up their breakfast. Then, you call the vet for a check-up.
Vomiting can result from both physical problems as well as emotional stress. As I said, vomiting is usually unpleasant for the dog, and they don't usually like the stench of it. If you can't get your dog to stop vomiting, contact the vet and tell them your dog is throwing up and getting no help. The vet will take their time to help your dog so that it doesn't cause him or her any further problems.
Sometimes the problem can be an over-production of stomach acid, usually from physical stress. This overproduction causes the contents of the stomach to spill into the mouth and stomach. The stomach is trying to neutralize the excess stomach acid with bile and try to push it back into the stomach, but it can't because it has already spilled out. This usually doesn't last too long because the body then goes into an emergency of it's own and creates a physical illness like parvo or giardia to help it get over the trauma of over-acidity. Once the emergency is over, the body and mind are ready to deal with the acid and the excess will stop as the normal system returns.
Dogs that vomit can sometimes be sick from over-acidity or over-excess stomach acid. Sometimes they can have an excess of parvo virus, and sometimes they can have too many things going on at once. If you have a dog that vomits for a longer period of time, please call your vet for help. The vet may prescribe some medication or even recommend an X-ray to rule out other problems. It is also important to check that your dog has been eating well, and that he has nothing else wrong with him. Sometimes a dog just needs to feel better.
Your dog may be throwing up a bile-yellow mucous that resembles egg whites. Sometimes the bile is in the vomitus. It can happen after overeating a greasy or fatty meal and can become a secondary problem with over-acidity. Another possibility is a bacterial infection. Bile-yellow mucous may be seen at other times, but it is a more common sign when a dog has been vomiting often for a long time.
When the emergency is over, it is important to keep the dogs food intake low, so they are not over-stressed and over-acidity. The over-acidity may last more than 24 hours and you may be able to watch the dogs until it is over and then feed them again, without them vomiting.
When you look at these signs, and the owner has been treating their dog with medications, you can assume that their problem is over-acidity. Your vet will work with your owner to treat the dogs acid-alkalinity and other factors as necessary. Your vet will likely recommend a laxative treatment as the next step.
There are some dogs that actually do better without treatment and there is usually no need to treat them. If you notice any problems with your dog, he is either not eating, or has problems eating, talk to your vet.
Dogs With Inappetance
Inappetance can be as obvious as a lack of chewing on food or a quick glance in your dogs bowl may be all you need to know that your dog is not eating his food. Another way to know if your dog is eating is by observing him in his sleeping quarters. You may be able to see that your dog has stopped chewing the bedding. If you see a dog that is not eating, you should talk to your vet and check the dog’s health over the next few days to see if there is anything else that is wrong.
Dogs that are not eating usually do not have any vomiting, and there is no yellow stools that come out of their mouth or rectum. If you observe other symptoms that you think may be related to your dogs inappetance, ask your vet. If you have been treating your dog with medications, and he is not eating well, you may be able to discontinue that medication.
Dogs that are not eating should be examined by a veterinarian to check their health. Your veterinarian will look at your dog and take a general look at his body. This may include checking their skin and fur to make sure they are not being bothered by fleas, ticks or other parasites. This may also include a check of the teeth, eyes and ears to make sure that your dog is not in need of any medical attention.
Dogs with inappetance may have something wrong in their system. Inappetance can be caused by something wrong with the dog’s stomach, intestine, bowels or pancreas. Your dog may have a gastrointestinal infection. There may be an obstruction to the small intestine that could cause your dog to not be able to digest food properly. Your dog could also have an issue with his pancreatic (digestive) glands or his pancreas. You dog could also have been poisoned by
