Dog throw up looks like poop?
My dog is about 3 months old and has started showing signs that he is starting to poop. He is currently being walked and taken out and is in good health so I am not concerned at all. I have noticed he seems to have "lots" of gas lately and it looks like he is throwing up. It's usually when he is sleeping on his side.
Anyone else have this issue with their dog? If so what were the causes?
My two yorkie girls eat lots of different meats and some veggies and I don't think this has anything to do with that but it happens every other day. When they do it I can see it coming out of their mouth. It looks like small pieces of food and just ends up in the grass. There are never poops to follow after that. I noticed that after they pooped it was like a brownish colour, but the next day it will be gone.
So what I did is I sprayed them with Listerine so it's nice and clean then washed it.
My girls have always had food related issues. They always eat and then regurgitate everything they ate later. I guess it's something that happens. They were diagnosed with chronic diarrhea when they were first brought home.
My girl had a bit of a tumor in her stomach that had been growing for years and it was finally removed when she was 6 years old. It is still not known what caused it but I guess it was in there long enough to create blockage. So they told me to try some digestive enzymes in their food but that didn't help. We just have to deal with it as best we can.
A friend of mine recently had a lab/pit bull cross with a cancer that started to spread. She was very sick with it. They had to put her down and that's why I'm posting this because I wanted to find a different way to treat or heal them of that condition and not cause them to suffer the way she did.
The vet thought she had a thyroid problem, but it wasn't that and so they did the "big gun" thing and the dog died. Just a couple of days before the dog was euthanized, a vet at a pet store told her that I had some kind of immune system thing. She was really upset at the time and a little scared because she wasn't sure what to do next. She started researching and she found the info on here on the site.
I think that the problem may have been that the virus had already been there a while. She was not healthy and had been with her mom since she was a puppy.
Thanks for the response. I am glad that you know this info. We are dealing with several health issues now. I'm hoping that this will help.
Our girl also has issues with diarrhea. We haven't been told what is causing it, but we just know she is not happy with it. We're going to do everything we can to find out and hopefully get her healthy. We did just see a Dr. and I'm happy with what he sd. At least we have someone to turn to for information.
Thanks for the info. It's comforting to know what may have caused her problems.
It was a few months ago and you posted it so I won't repeat it. Just wanted to say thank you.
Her name was Molly. She was my first dog that I ever owned and I love her with all my heart. When I finally did find out what it was and how to treat it and she recovered, she was my baby. Even though she was dying, I still loved her and wanted her to be with me. I got her some of her favorite treats and she looked right at me and wagged her tl.
Molly had a liver tumor. The day she died, I got up early and sat with her and she licked my face all the time. I had her cremated and my Mom and Dad had a grave made for her and I know she was really happy.
I'm so sorry. Please give her a good life. Tell her how much I love her.
We were recently blessed with one of those very rare cases where a veterinarian could see the cause of our dog's symptoms and gave us a simple treatment. With her, it was the first time it could have been a hereditary issue - and we can say that it was!
When we adopted our little angel, it looked like she was recovering from surgery but as you know they never really do. She had an infection in her spleen that required several large injections and antibiotics and she was never really right. Her spleen seemed to stop working correctly as she was always tired and listless. Within a few days she couldn't even hold up her head. She wasn't eating, drinking and seemed to just fade.
With our little angel she had a kidney problem and had an enlarged and infected spleen. She had surgery where the kidney was removed and the spleen removed and her gall bladder was also removed. Her immune system was compromised but she still couldn't stand up strght. She was in the hospital about a week and on her home IV antibiotics for three more days.
When she first came home, she was lethargic and would just lie there when we would walk in the door. She did not want to play or run. It was the last time we saw her happy.
The vet told us she was a shadow of her old self.
After some time, she started eating and drinking and started to perk up. At first, it was just her eating - no interest in water or food, but now she's back to her old self. She's got a little energy and loves to play.
She still looks listless sometimes, so we'll continue to keep a close eye on her, but we're happy to see her happy agn.

We've had some fun lately doing some winter sledding and have been watching some YouTube videos for some ideas. We had an extra pr of sleds from Christmas and we've been having fun with them. (Thanks to my sweet husband and son)
So last week when I woke up to a freezing cold February morning, I decided we should try one last time before the real winter set in.
My mom has the idea that the snow must be really soft to slide. The day we made our last trip we had a heavy coating of snow. It was icy underneath the snow and it was hard to control the sleds. On the way back to our house we stopped to try agn. I couldn't control the sled, it was uncontrollable. There was no way I was going to try agn.
The next day, I woke up to a picture perfect white out.
We headed for the mountn to see if we could find a soft surface to slide on. We looked in the parking lot behind our complex, at the school, the playground and the parking lot. No luck there, but then I remembered I checked my Facebook feed and saw a girl at a local park who had posted a picture of her sled.
What are the chances? So off we went.
There were about 3-4 inches of snow on the ground. (You would never believe this is as freezing as it is in the pictures)
All I could think was "How am I going to get out of this one?"
I don't usually get nervous before an adventure, but I was a little bit nervous about sliding on a slippery patch of ice. My sled went way past one of the patches and into a deep hole. I landed on
