You and your dog stick together through thick and thin and in sickness and in health. Your pooch is there to comfort you when you’re feeling under the weather. But what happens when it’s your dog that’s sick? If your dog is vomiting, it’s easy to panic and think something is seriously wrong. But not every vomiting session should have you rushing your best friend to the veterinarian. Dogs throw up for many reasons. It’s important for you to learn the difference between what’s serious and what’s not.


1. Why Dogs Vomit

Vomiting is very common in both young and old dogs. There are many reasons why it happens, but the most common is stomach problems. If your dog is like most, he or she gets very excited at meal time. They tend to eat too much food too quickly. In this instance, your dog throws up just to get rid of what’s in its stomach. If they don’t display any other symptoms, and the vomiting does not continue, there should be no need to take matters further.
