He pukes...


Is it normal for a dog to puke? My dog, a shih tzu, pukes regularly and I'm a bit worried about it. I've heard from other dog owners that this is a common problem with dogs especially that we are in a tropical country and a shih tzu is not so used with the hot weather. We asked the vet about this and she said it doesn't necessarily mean the dog is sick and it's a casual thing but she gave Lokii pet supplements. I just hope it helps him because the kids are worried every time he pukes.

hi liza, i am not so sure abt shih tzu, but whenever my doggies puke, that;s mean they are sick. I hv one silky terrier and one american spaniel.

How's yr dog these days?

Our lab pukes if she eats something too hot (like if we put gravy on her kibble) or sometimes if she just snarfs her food too fast...we've just learned to make sure that meat scraps are cool before we give them to her, and to keep her portions small (we feed her 2x day in smaller portions rather than one big one).

I was a vet tech for 5 years and we saw this a lot. Usually the problem was allergies. The dogs could be allergic to the food it is getting fed. Human food is really not good for dogs unless it is properly prepared. You may try cutting out any human food and gradually switching your little pooch to lamb and rice formula dog foods. You may see a difference. It is worth a try.
