Q. My dog is vomiting. She was sick 3 days prior-dry heaving. She seemed back to normal yesterday and today but when I got home tonight she hasn't eaten

A. There are so many different causes for vomtiing, some less serious than others. How old is she and is she on any medications ? What do you normally feed her and could she have eaten something different that could have upset her stomach ? Is she a scavenger ? Has she been treated for worms and are her vaccinations up to date ? Is he normally healthy etc ? A very frequent scenario is alimentary indiscretion, and it normally resolves by feeding the dog a bland diet in smaller portions, after starving for a set number of days. If vomiting persists or appears after a few days, you want to make sure that there is nothing more serious going on like an obstruction or pancreatitis. I would recommend to have her checked over by your vet today.
