Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
When your dog eats something noxious (such as the fried chicken he found in the bin) Mother Nature’s answer is to make the dog vomit. Of course, if you see your dog chowing down in the undergrowth, the reason for his sickness becomes obvious. When you take your sick dog to the veterinarian, in order to identify why he’s throwing up may mean running a whole raft of tests including blood work, radiographs, ultrasound, and endoscopy. Your vet might prescribe a medication like Metoclopramide to ease your dog's vomiting, but this only addresses the symptoms. Vomiting is a symptom of a problem, rather than a diagnosis in its own right, so let’s take a look at some of the reasons why a dog might throw up.
Foreign BodiesLet’s start at the younger end of the age spectrum, with puppies, in our exploration of the unsavory subject of vomiting. Youngsters are inquisitive and they also like to chew, which isn’t a great combination, because it increases the risk of a puppy swallowing something harmful. 10 Proven Ways to Manage Your Dog’s Pain Naturally Our pets are living longer than ever and many begin to suffer from the “wea.. This is a protective mechanism whereby that two-day old fast food is got rid of from the dog’s stomach before it can make him seriously ill.
But at other times the reason may not be so clear, and there many reasons why a dog might vomit.


Hopefully, an investigation isn’t always required, especially if there is a history of wrongdoing – such as our fast-food-loving scavenger. If what he swallows can’t pass along through the gut then it will cause a blockage – the technical term for which is a ‘foreign body’.Think of a foreign body in the bowel as the doggy equivalent of a blocked drain in a sink – when you pull the plug the washing up water gets so far and then refluxes back up again.
Hopefully Mother Nature does her job and has the dog throwing up whatever it was he ate, before the toxins are absorbed and make him seriously ill.Parasitic ProblemSticking with the youngsters, parasites are a common cause of sickness in this group.
Urgent attention is required for any dog vomiting blood, or that is dehydrated, in pain, listless, or jaundiced. For our dog this means when he eats the food has nowhere to go and eventually he will throw up. A heavy worm burden, especially roundworms, can irritate the bowel lining or in severe cases causes a blockage, leading to nausea and vomiting. Remember, if in doubt – contact your veterinarian and take their advice about whether the dog should be seen or not. Of course, foreign bodies are not solely the preserve of the young, but their nosey nature puts them at greater risk than older, more sensible dogs. Those most at risk are young unvaccinated dogs whose immune systems are weak and still developing. Some of the more serious conditions, such as Parvo, are associated with particularly unpleasant symptoms such as the dog vomiting blood.Also be aware there are a whole spectrum of bugs which can cause stomach upsets which range in severity from mild to more serious.


Always seek urgent veterinary attention for any dog throwing up blood, or that is not able to keep fluid down, or is lethargic or weak.Sensitive StomachSome dogs suffer with a food sensitivity or allergy.
This means their bowel reacts against certain foods, mounts an immune response, and labels the ingredient as harmful. The gut lining becomes inflamed and this causes symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea, or even itchiness and skin infections. Common medications, such as the non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) used to treat the pain associated with arthritis, have a good safety margin but if given on an empty stomach can cause problems such as gastric ulcers.
One of the body’s job is to safely get rid of the natural toxins that are the result of the digestive process.
If, for example, the liver or kidneys are diseased, these toxins build up in the blood stream and make the dog feel nauseous and result in the dog throwing up. This causes the dog throwing up yellow foam, usually first thing in thing in the morning just after he’s woken up. This condition is not an illness as such, but the result of the dog having an empty stomach overnight and bile irritating the stomach lining, which makes him throw up.
