Help! My Grey Threw Up A Weird White Lump

Recommended Posts

Guest lucylei

My 5 yr old, Missy, woke up just before her breakfast time and started to cry/pace. Then she threw up some yellow bile and a hard lump of some kind, and just walked away. Now her stomach is grumbling and I'm trying to figure out what it is. It's about half the size of a golf ball, and all it is like a ball of wax or hardened fat. No hair, no blood, just this little white thing. Missy's diet was perfectly normal yesterday - nothing out of the ordinary, though we did go to an offleash park and now I'm wondering if she could have eaten something, but it is literally just a lump of white. Any have any answers?

I don't know how long you have had her, but it's possible she ate something before you got her, maybe in the foster home. A friend of mine had her dog for a few weeks and threw up a Barbie shoe! She has no children. She found out her dog had a stop over at a foster home before coming to her adoption group.


My girl Boo threw up a tail of a stuffie toy that was the size of a golf ball after I adopted her. I asked the foster parent about it and she doesn't have toys at her house because her dogs destroy them. Boo must have gotten it before she came to our group.


But then again, she could've gotten something at the dog park.

No advice other than if you are worried she may still have something in her stomach, a vet visit is in order. What she threw up may have been anything and she may now be fine but if her signs of distress continue, I would be on my way to the vet.

Why not give her a small milk bone and see if the grumbling ceases. Bonnie often needs a little something in the morning especially if she's thrown up bile. She gets too hungry and funny looking chunks might come along

I adopted a senior boy from the local animal shelter who was being fostered. On the day we picked him up, he ate a super ball. ONE YEAR later, he hacked and gagged and threw it up. So it may be from long ago, it may be from the park. I hope you put the lump in the freezer, just in case you may need it later if any symptoms develop?

It must have been something she ate. Sadi did this a few times, and perhaps surprisingly it sometimes took a couple of days for the offending "item" to make its re-entry. Funniest (and oddest) one was when I gave her a chinese water chestnut...of course she swallowed it whole instead of crunching it up and three days later it came back up at about 5am....when I found it I thought she had gacked up an eyeball! :yikes after three days I had completely forgotten about the water chestnut...she had pooped normally and eaten normally in the intervening days, if something was too fibrous for her to digest it would just hang around in her system somewhere until it was ready to come back up.

I"m just wondering if you ever found out what this was?! My dog just did the same (this morning) and has been lethargic and licking her lips for several weeks now.  I do give her the No-hide chew sticks and am afraid maybe she has some still in her gut. Otherwise she eats and poops totally normally...
