Pet Vomiting

Animal Emergency Care information

Look for signs of foreign material or strange food in the pet vomit. Call your veterinarian or emergency clinic and tell them what your pet had eaten or what foreign objects you have found in the vomit.

You may be advised to “rest the stomach” for 4–6 hours by offering no food or water. You may then try small amounts of water and bland food every two hours. If there is no further vomiting, you can return your pet to a normal diet.

If the vomiting persists or your pet has non-productive vomiting (retching), or abdominal distension, seek veterinary help immediately.
