Help! My dog wont eat and throwing up!!
« on: December 15, 2006, 12:11:42 pm »
Sammy is throwing up two to three times a day.He hasnt eaten anything solid in over a week. The vet says it may be intestinal but his poop is also black.He is even throwing up the medicine the vet gave me for him. I dont know what to do. He did test negative for parvo so we know thats not it. The medicine is Reglan and Clavamox. Help!! ANy suggestions would be great!

Try to keep him hydrated until you can get him back to the vet- please let us know how he is doing.

When my kitty was prescribed Clavamox my vet said the side effects can be loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. And that if any of those got severe I was to bring her back in and he would put her on something else. We did switch meds but I can't remember what he gave me.

So I would definitely take Sammy back to the vet..

Keep us updated on how he is.  :)

i read online it might be a sign of an ulcer if it's a tarry black, also i think it was hook worms (or was it whip worms) that can cause this, also.  when tiny got hook worms she also puked.  also read that Salmonellosis causes fever, vomiting, diarrhea  and mostly effects young and old mostly.  i'd get an all over check up, poop and all.  but that's just me

Get an x-ray IMMEDIATELY! Sounds like internal bleeding.

Ok guys sorry it took so long to get back to you. Sammy is actually my neighboors dog but he didnt know what else to do so I told him I knew some people that know their stuff!!

Good news he's 100% better!! Turns out he had swallowed something, I think it was a peice of a ribber toy, and it got stuck in him!! He passed it two days ago and now hes as good as new!! He took all the meds and the perscription dog food back to the vet and got his money back. Thanks for all the advice guys!! You are always there for me! !
