• I gave my dog his flee and tick, and heartworm pill yesterday as instructed and tonight he just vomited. His vomit was army green and had chunky pieces. I haven’t feed him since this morning. Is vomit supposed to be that way or should i be worried he ate poop?

    Hi Adara,
    If the vomiting has continued, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Vomit is not usually the green color that you are describing unless it was the color of something that he ate. By biggest concern with green vomit is that color is often associated with rat or mouse poison. If there is any chance that he could get into this, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian immediately. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his vomiting after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help with the diagnosis. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of his symptoms.
