My dog is vomiting after she eats every time and I can't afford to take her to the vet till next week. What do I do?

Report as

Call the vet anyways, ask if you can do a payment plan or defer payment til next week. Your dog's health is most important right now, and vomiting can turn into very serious issues that just build onto costs. In 24 hours your dog can become severely dehydrated. So vet now, not later.

um .. that's not really true. Adult dogs are lactose intollerant .. It would make a sick dog even sicker.

.. and milk does not 'absorb' poison.
Report as
..it can neutralize acid .. not exactly the same thing as 'absorbtion'.

She could possibly have parvo. If you cannot afford to take her then just keep a close eye on her. If she gets to the point where she is not wanting to eat then you will have to forcefully feed her. it might sound harsh but it works.

At least get her to drink water. Even ice chips to keep her hydrated.

Try feeding her a different kind of food .. something as bland as possible .. even fried hamburger and brown rice..see if she can keep that down..if so..then you know it's the food have previously been feeding her that is making her sick..Her stomach can't tolerate it. Food intolerance and food allergies are very .. I repeat .. VERY common.

Be very careful not to ever give a sick dog fried food. It can be useful to indicate if an animal is willing to eat anything, but that much fat is terrible for a dog's stomach, any time. BOIL any meat so the fat comes off instead of cooking in.

I guess I should have mentioned to use extra lean hamburger .. which is fine even for a dog.

Whatever it is, frying it makes it terrible for the dog's system, as that method of cooking seals the fat INTO the food. That's why we like it so much lol. It is good advice, just needs to be boiled, lean food, never fried.

I understand what you are suggesting .. and if this was a staple food ..yes, I would tend to agree that boiling might reduce the amount of fat .. but, I am not suggesting to offer this as a regular meal (which even veterinarians will suggest) .. but, as a meal replacement in the mean time .. to entice this dog to eat. I am not suggesting that a meal would consist of a whole pound of hamburger .. but sufficient enough to satisfy.

I'm just concerned that this person would feed their already sick dog something fatty, and that could cause more, different problems than they're already having, thus making the core problem harder to identify. I have worked as a vet tech for years, and something like that can make something simple seem like something super complicated. Similar to if you're already sick, and you eat McDonald's burger. If you have further gastrointestinal symptoms and you go to the doctor, they will have to do extra work (meaning extra $), to determine what's part of the core problem. I did say your advice is good, with that minor exception, and that fried food COULD be used to see if there's any appetite, but more than a tiny bite should not be given.

You do realize that regular dog food still has a pretty high fat content, unless you choose one that is for weight management .. right? .. Cat food is even higher.

First, pick up the water. No water for at least an hour after she vomits.. otherwise she will just keep making herself vomit and the problem looks much worse than it is. Try bland diet.. Boil, so the fat is removed, chicken, mix it 2:1 with rice, blend it if you have to in a food processor. And no milk. Even if that was true about the poison, antidote for one is worse for another. And milk is bad for dogs. They do not process the fat well, or the lactose.
