Default Dog is Throwing up water

My dog keeps throwing up water. The vomit is clear and a little
bubbly. Been going on for a few days, she has been eatting, peeing
and pooping. What is going on? What can I do? Change diet? Pepto
Bismol?

Thanks.

No kidding. Yes, since they've put it off it is now Saturday and they
may even have to pay extra for an ER!

take youdogto the vet. It's just "that" simple.. don't do anything until

Thank you for your "simple" opinion, but I think I am going to try one
of the more well thought out suggestions I received online:

Suggestion 1:
You have to look at how and what your dog is vomiting. If your dog
vomits once or twice and then seems its normal self, it is probably
not serious.

You didn't say id your dog is throwing up at a specific time during
the day.

If your dog throws up his last last meal, then continues to throw up
hen a clear, frothy liquid, it suggests a stomach irritant. Grass,
spoiled food, other indigestibles, and certain infectious illnesses
(such as gastroenteritis) all cause irritation of the stomach lining.

Throwing up just water, especially right after drinking it can simply
mean that your gulped down too much water too quickly. If this is the
case, don't fill the water bowl up to the top, only put about a cup of
water in the bowl, and fill the bowl often during the day.

Many times, a dog will throw up first thing in the morning, which
looks like a clear (or sometimes yellow) frothy vomit. This happens
because the dog's stomach is empty, and it's uncomfortable. By itself,
with no other symptoms of illness (not eating, diarrhea, acting
lethargic) this form of vomiting is nothing to worry about.

You can give your dog an extra treat, such as a milk bone just before
you go to bed, so your dog's stomach isn't as empty in the morning.
You could also give your dog a Pepcid AC in the evening. The typical
dose for dogs is 0.25 to 0.5 mg per pound every 12 to 24 hours. If you
have questions concerning the dose, talk to your vet. If your dog is
on any other medication, or has kidney or liver disease, you should
speak to your vet before using Pepcid AC.

Suggestion 2:
As long as she keeps some food and water down, then we can try the
following: If she increases the vomiting, please see a VET ASAP.. We
don't want her to dehydrate, ok?

First: Put her on some bonless white chicken and white rice diet.
Make a few days of this mixture up for her. Yes, you need to cook for
her, OK???

Next: give her an acid relux pill 2 x per day - this is the kind for
humans - you can get it at Wallmart:
It is called : Acid Reducer: or you can just get Zantac.
Make sure you give the lowest dosage you can 1-2 times per day...
At least 1 hour before feedings.

If you dog starts to acquire a cough, please call the vet.

I am wondering if she is just making too much acid in her belly or
having a " nervous " belly.

IOW you prefer to guess and take the cheap option out. If she's making too
much acid, she may have an underlying condition. In fact, she probably
does, which needs to be addressed.

The only good solution is to take your dog to the vet.

I'm wondering why you don't call a vet. If you have so
little experience with this stuff that you have to ask
complete strangers or do an online search, you probably
don't have the expertise to evaluate how serious the problem
is, etc. Calling a vet on the phone costs you nothing -
*nothing* - and you can take their advice or leave it, or
call another vet and compare notes. A vet can ask you
questions (interactivity is good! when trying to diagnose a
health problem). In my experience most vets will try to
help you sort things out on your own if it doesn't sound
that serious.

I'm really not sure why you're willing to take the advice of
random strangers you know nothing about rather than calling
a veterinarian. Both are free, but with a vet you're
talking with a professional. Do you know how many crackpots
post here? Do you know how many people post here who mean
well but post stuff that's just plain incorrect? You're
****ing around with your dog's health. She's probably just
fine, but if she's not you'll never, ever forgive yourself
for this.

Whenever I run into a situation like this, I take my vet's advice: "Call
me." I call, give the assistant or receptionist as much detail as I can
supply, and usually wait for a call back (or if it's deemed serious enough,
wait for the vet to get on the phone). He can tell me if there's something I
can do, or if I need to take the dog in, or what I can do until I can get
the dog over to him. That's why I have a vet ... Nobody who has a dog should
be without one ...
