    Auggie has been throwing up. I know dogs just throw up sometimes, but I need some reassurance. (Regardless I'm probably taking him to the vet Monday and spending $30 to have them tell me "he's fine, stop panicking." =P)

    It happened first a few weeks ago - he was playing with Happy after he ate, and threw up. Then Mom put him into his crate a little later and he threw up again. We dismissed it as his being too rowdy after eating and not having his stomach settled when he was put back into his crate. No big deal.

    Then on the 29th, I was woken up at 2am by him barking to be let out. By the time I got to him, he'd already thrown up. He'd been in his crate since 9 or 10pm... plus, he threw up food. Semi-digested food. He eats dinner at 5pm... shouldn't it have been digested by then?
    He threw up again sometime between 3am and 8am, just a little bit. However, he acted fine the rest of the day, and though I didn't sleep very well that night (I am a nutcase and was seriously freaking out, laying in bed at 4 in the morning thinking "why did he throw up?!? omg, is something wrong?!") we decided he just had an upset stomach and he was fine.


    Well, he just threw up again. I got home about twenty minutes ago and he was excited to see me, so I opened the crate and cuddled with him to get him to calm down and get ready to go back to bed. I put him back into his crate and sat down to check my e-mail... and he threw up.
    Again, it's semi-digested food with brown, thick, stinky mucus.
    Maybe he was just excited again..?


    Is there something wrong with my puppy? He gets into EVERYTHING outside and eats bugs, grass, leaves, dirt, so on and so forth. I know he hasn't gotten anything he's not supposed to have inside, but outside is a different story... by the time I get to him to see what he's chomping on, it's already been swallowed. So it's also possible he's just eaten a bug or something and it makes him throw up...
    Maybe he has a blockage? But still, you'd think he'd be throwing up more often. And he's still pooping just fine.

    I'm worried. Somebody please tell me I'm being dumb and to relax.

    Keep that appointment with your vet. I honestly think its the type of food you are feeding him. Make sure its nothing else by talking to your vet at your appointment. Could he have worms? Have his stool tested for worms just in case.
    What are you feeding him if you dont mind me asking?

    Starting yesterday, my dog has thrown up a couple of times.

    Yesterday morning, a few minutes after my girlfriend left, he threw up a tiny bit of white liquid--twice in a row.

    Then this morning, it was yellow liquid (twice in a row). His stool is fine and he's very energetic.

    Age: 6 months
    Food: Canidae

    I have a feeling that if we take him to the vet right now they're going to put him on Science Diet or Hill's prescription. Should we give him a bland diet today and then just wait it out?

    I just found this online:
