My pug has been throwing up since Friday night. He is almost 4 and didn't get into anything. He is eating and drinking water. He has also been outside and pooped several times. Anyone have any ideas?

My 2 year old pug has had vomiting issues that we've tried to tackle from a variety of angles. At his worst he was drinking a bunch of water and throwing up immediately afterwards. We were constantly taking him to the vet, and on the last visit she gave him a pepcid shot, an anti-nausea shot, and a water/electrolite pack under his skin that would keep him hydrated as we had him fast for an evening. For the next week we gave him a vet prescribed bland-diet of rice and cottage cheese. That and hypoallergenic food from then on seems to do the trick.

Maybe he has developed a food allergy? Also, he might be eating too quickly. Is there bile in the throw-up, or is it just the food? Just the food suggests he might be eating too much too fast. If he is immediately throwing water back up, cut the water and food for a bit to give his stomach time to settle.

The best thing you can do for him is get him to the vet so they can test him for stuff, though.

Sadly, we need to start looking for a new home for our pugs

My wife and I have been heartbroken about the realization that we need to look for a new loving (pug loving) home for our pugs.We love our pugs and they are part of the family, but our life has got to a point where we just cannot give them the love and attention they need. We have a 2 year old child and are expecting second child in April.Our pug journey has been long, and I'm feeling sad even writing this. Ninja and Champ are our pugs, they are sisters (4 and 5 years old). We brought them with…See More
