Vomiting throughout the day

Teal has had a rough day she vomited at the vets office this morning. Her entire breakfast came up hours after she'd eaten it. Wasn't very well digested or chewed. Then they gave her the rabies vaccine. I regret not canceling the appointment immediately. They took her in back while I was cleaning up the puke and gave her the shot She threw up again about an hour after that. More food and some treats that she'd had at the vet. Then she had a VERY watery poop. I took her home and she's puked twice more. The last 2 were just water, no bile. I called the vet already and they suggested pepto bismol. My poor Teal has been laying on the floor for hours, feeling miserable. She still shows interest in water, but I'm rationing out to avoid more vomiting. What else can I do for her? What should I be concerned about now? I'll be taking her to the Emergency vet if she starts refusing water.

If the dog is vomiting, you should withhold food for 12 hours. You want the stomach to rest. Since you definitely don't want dehydration, give her some ice cubes to lick or a few tablespoons of water every 1/2 hour.

If no more vomiting after 12 hours give her fresh clean water but don't let her guzzle down a full bowl in one sitting. Offer bland food (boiled chicken w/rice or boiled chop meat w/rice. The majority being rice) but start out with a small amount so you don't overload her stomach. If she continues to not vomit, slowly give her more of the bland food mixture.

You want to be sure she doesn't get dehydrated. Check her gums gums are a good indicator of early dehydration. Normal gums are moist and shiny whereas dehydration will cause the gums to be dry or tacky feeling because they produce less saliva.

If it keeps up I'd get to the vet.

I've withheld food since this morning. Since she got some pepto she's been holding water, but I only let her have a bit every half hour. It just breaks my heart to see her sick. It's worse because I dont know what happened to cause all of this.

She was sleeping and started leaking water/feces? Smelled absolutely terrible. Had to give her a bath, she went potty outside and then back inside to sleep.

Oh, poor peach, Hopefully with a night's rest her stomach will settle and tomorrow she'll feel a little better.

I just wanted to empathize. We also gave Rundle her second vaccines when she was having a bout of diarrhea. Since we knew the cause of the diarrhea we didn't have any concerns and let her go ahead with the shots. This ended up throwing her whole system off and after a week of diarrhea we had to get meds/forti flora to help her get over it. I felt so guilty at the time... but, learned my lesson! It's tough being a puppy parent. Sometimes you can do everything right, but the one time you get it wrong... you end up kicking yourself for awhile. Really hoping Teal feels better soon!!

Odd the vet would even do the vaccine. When Zoe was sick the past two times he requested to wait a week until she was feeling better and to have the vaccines done as a vet tech apt (no vet fee just fee for vaccine.)

Personally when Zoe had no interest in water and had an upset tummy we boiled her a chicken breast. We then gave her the broth throughout the day in small amounts since she didnt want water.

She'll down a whole pot of chicken stock if we dont watch her, then she'll pee every 10 minutes for the next 2 hours lol

How's Miss.Teal doing today? Hopefully she's keeping things down now and on the road to recovery.

So sorry about Teal. Hope she gets better soon. I have to agree, I find it very strange that the vet would give her a rabies vaccine when she was ill. In fact, some dogs have side effects like vomiting and diarrhea. You should discuss this with the vet and then find a more sensible vet to take care of your dog.

"Vaccination puts a tremendous burden on the immune system to mount a protective response. If the response is to be adequate and provide protection against disease, there shouldn’t be any other immune-compromising stresses present. Clearly, an animal already fighting an infection, injury, or other illness is not going to have adequate resources to devote to the vaccine–and it could take away from its ability to fight what’s already there. Chemotherapy and steroids suppress the immune system and deplete its ability to produce a good vaccine response. Even something as seemingly benign as a bath or an elective surgery or dental procedure will reduce body temperature, a stress which can also inhibit the immune system. These are some of the reasons why the directions on every vial of vaccine say “for use in healthy animals only.”
