• Hello, my dog Gucci who is a terrier chihuahua mix has thrown up the last hour about 5 times. The vomit is a mix of liquid and bland chicken which is his meal mixed with dog food. My other 2 dogs had the same thing and they are fine. Should I be concerned? Is there something I can give him?

    Hi Alex,

    If the vomiting has continued I recommend that you take Gucci into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Vomiting as often as you are describing is concerning as it can quickly lead to dehydration or other issues. There can be many different causes for the vomiting including infection, intestinal parasites, a GI blockage, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the vomiting after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause of the vomiting.
