Puppy Vomiting: Why Is my Puppy Throwing Up

Vomiting in puppies is a common occurrence. Vomiting can be caused by internal and external factors. Internal factors include diet, digestive problems, and even the presence of worms.

External factors include pollution or contamination from your surroundings-such as dirt walking on your carpet or grass walking on your kitchen floor. The best option to consider here is to use an indoor litter box for your dog’s potty activities and place him/her in a quarantine zone until symptoms subside.

Treatment options range from antibiotics to surgery but most instances of vomiting will resolve with simple treatment-cleanliness! Keeping up with this form of animal housekeeping will help keep symptoms at bay and prevent further contamination. In some cases,


Some puppies vomit when they experience abdominal pain, but this does not always signify that they are sick. Abdominal pain and vomiting are caused by a variety of physical problems, including stomach ulcers.

If you see the droppings in the area of the litter box or outside the house, it’s very likely the problem is caused by contamination of the environment. Clean the area thoroughly. If the smell is bad, clean the area with a diluted bleach solution, then rinse clean and dry.

If your puppy is vomiting, take him to the veterinarian. The vet will most likely run a blood test and urine culture to determine the cause of the vomiting.

If your puppy continues to vomit despite cleaning and proper hygiene, there may be more serious problems. He may be experiencing stomach inflammation or stomach pain. He may be suffering from a blockage. If he is dehydrated, he may be having diarrhea or diarrhea and dehydration. If your puppy is having diarrhea, make sure he’s drinking water. Ask your vet to examine him.


If your puppy vomits often, consult your vet. Ask your vet to run a complete blood count (CBC) and a urinalysis (UA). He or she will also likely want to conduct a physical exam. The vet may want to do an additional blood test and stool sample if the problem is ongoing.


If you’ve taken all the precautions necessary to prevent contamination and the smell of the vomit is still strong, consider treating the feces outside. This may make it easier for your dog to learn to use the litter box. The easiest way to avoid this is to use a litter box inside your house. If you do this, be sure to give your dog his first bowel movement in the box.

If your dog has an underlying health condition, such as a stomach ulcer, your vet may recommend that you monitor your dog closely. If your dog has a blockage or if you suspect that the blockage is due to a cancerous tumor or intestinal wall abnormality, you may need to have your dog operated on to remove the blockage. Consult your vet for more information.
