Q. MY 7 YEAR OLD Dachshund HAS BEEN VOMITING WHITE MUSCUS FOR 3 DAYS. WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF THIS?

A. IT'S CALLED GASTRITIS AND CAN BE CAUSE BY MULTIPLE THINGS. THE MUCUS IS THE GASTRIC MUCUS A NATURAL PROTECTION FOR THE ACIDS OF THE STOMACH. WHEN THE STOMACH GETS IRRITATED THAT MAKES THE DOG VOMITING AND IF NOTHING ON IT WILL THROW UP MUCUS OR BILE. MY ADVICE IS 12 H OFF FOOD AND ICE CUBES INSTEAD OF WATER (2-3 PER HOUR) AND AFTER THAT START OFFERING SMALL AMOUNTS (LITTLE AND OFTEN) OF BOILED RICE WITHOUT DRAINING THE WATER OF THE BOILED RICE (USE THE WHOLE THING). IF NOT BETTER IN 24 H GO TO YOUR VETS.
