8 Yo Grey Vomiting


Recommended Posts

If anyone could help to give me some insight it would be much appreciated. We have an 8 yo grey named Maryl and she has been very healthy. Just had her physical and dental, did great. we did give her a bunch of pork rib meat over the weekend and early Monday AM vomiting started. All day yesterday she vomited every time she was given just water. We went to animal emergency last night but the wait was 4 hrs, lots of crazy dogs in the waiting room and the triage nurse told us she didn't feel maryl had bloat or was in serious danger at the time. She of couse advised us to wait and get her evaluated. maryl could not sit in that waiting room when she was so tired from her draining day, so we felt the best thing was to take her home and see how she did. Overnight I have gradually given her water and she is keeping that down but no stool. the triage nurse said it might be from a large fat load this weekend. I have had greys for long time but haven't had this problem before. Does this sound reasonable? I would like to know so we don't repeat this mistake in the future. Unfortunately Maryl hasn't met food she didn't like so she just eats anything and everything!

 

Thanks ahead of time!

Maria, Jeff and Maryl

Quite possibly the fat-load from that pork you fed could have triggered a big 'squirt' of bile/digestive enzymes etc from the Gallbladder into the common bile duct. It is possible that some of the 'sludge' blocked the duct. Consider looking up: Gallbladder mucocele, Cholecystitis & Pancreatitis. If your dog appears Jaundiced in some way then it probably is as a result of something closely associated with the Liver. However it could be a bunch of other things which only a vet's careful examination and testing can resolve. IV therapy may still be needed.

 

I hope your Maryl is feeling a lot better soon.

 

Obviously if your dog eventually manages to pass a black tarry stool then it is from a bleed higher up in the digestive tract.

Blockage or partial blockage is not really something that gives you a lot of time so I'm hoping that nurse called it right.

Agreeing with the others. Too much fat in the pork could have triggered pancreatitis. For some dogs it doesn't take much.

You were all right, pancreatitis. She is at the local animal hospital right now getting treatment. Thanks so much for your replies, it means a lot to me. Good info for the future and I am praying for my Maryl as she did then start vomiting again today and pancreatitis can be deadly.
