Some of the causes of vomiting in dogs include dietary indiscretion, sudden change in diet plan, habit of gobbling food, intolerance to a particular food, some kind of allergic reaction, ingestion of obstructing objects, acute inflammation of the stomach, and parasites.
If your dog is bright and alert, and only vomits a few times, you can use these at home remedies to treat vomiting in your dog.
When your dog vomits it is important not feed for a period of time. For a puppy around at least 12 hours, 24 hours for any fully grown dog. This will allow inflammation of the stomach to calm down which will help treat your dog's vomiting. In addition, withholding food gives the gastrointestinal tract some rest and time to recover.
Due to vomiting, there is a high chance that your dog will be dehydrated. Most dogs fail to stay hydrated when they start to vomit frequently. Instead of water, veterinarians recommend offering ice chips that most dogs love to eat. Ice chip prevents your dog from getting dehydrated and is much better than regular water in this situation. In addition, the coldness of the ice chip will make your pet feel better.
