Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My dog vomited twice today after eating and now he's gagging and drooling. I don't think he ate something he shouldn't have. How can I help him?

    I recommend that you take him into see your veterinarian. The gagging and drooling can be signs of nausea. The nausea and vomiting can be caused by many different things including eating something that they shouldn’t, infection, parasites, or an underlying medical issue. Some of these issues can become worse if they are not treated.

    Your veterinarian can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms after they have examined him. They may also need to perform some laboratory tests and/or x-rays to help with the diagnosis. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause of the nausea and vomiting.
