What to do when dog is throwing up?

Best answers

You can baby your dog as you would a sick child and give him homemade food such as boiled potatoes, rice and well-cooked, skinless chicken.

In certain situations, your dog may require fluid therapy, antibiotics, a change in diet, antiemetics (drugs to help control vomiting) or other medication.

Gradually increase the amount of food and decrease the feedings as you transition to the dog's normal food.

If your vet asked you to withhold water, re-introduce it slowly in small amounts.

✔️

Observe your dog for 12 hours and if you see that he is not vomiting, you may offer him a small meal of rice mixed with boiled white chicken meat.

A lot of dog vomiting is caused by inflammation of the stomach, so one of the most common treatments includes feeding a bland diet (boiled chicken or white fish and white rice or sweet potato or a veterinary-prescribed gastrointestinal diet), alongside some anti-nausea medication.
