    Defaulthelp! she is throwing up everything

    I have a 9 month old puppy that I am afraid may have some kind of blockage, about 3:30 this morning she throw up a sock. every since then she has been drinking a lot of water but even the water keeps coming back up. I tried to see if she would eat a little food and she threw that up about 5 minutes after she ate.

    Is there any way to tell if she has swallowed something and it has formed some sort of blockage? she seems normal otherwise and is running and acting normal

    Thanks

    she seems to be able to keep water down. I will call the vet when he opens. But I think she is getting better. I'll see what the vet says and then try some dog food later

    Thanks

    Sounds like a blockage, please call the vet and take her in ASAP.

    How did she get the sock?

    I am waiting for my vet to open but she is now keeping water down and she ate a little bit and has kept it down as well. I don't know when she ate the sock. We try to keep an eye on her all of the time but she apparantly got it when we weren't looking. She is acting normal and wants to eat but I only gave her a very small portion and do not want to rush it. She has not thrown up now in almost 2 hours

    Thanks

    Definitely call the vet when they open. Will someone be with her today? I would make sure someone can keep an eye on her for continued vomiting and to see if she's going to the bathroom.

    She ate a sock. Okay, where is the mate to the sock. If you can't find it, get to a vet. E-vet if you have to. If the ingestion in recent, they may have the instruments to go in her mouth and extract it. A lot cheaper and easier on her than having to open her up if it gets down to far. It's that simple for step 1.

    Even if you find it, you have seen enough to warrant a trip to the vet.

    Defaultdoing better waiting on vet

    She had some food 45 minutes ago and we are waiting on the vet which will be another hour. She has kept water down for about 2 hours and food down for about 45 minutes. But am still anxious and want to talk to the vet and take her in if he thinks I should.

    Will keep you informed.

    Thanks

    Defaulttalked with the vet

    I talked with my vet and he told me some things to watch for. He said that the stomach could be sensitive for several hours after throwing up a sock and to go easy on feeding her and watch for any signs of compication such as continued vomiting or straining when taking a dump. Right now she is drinking water and has eaten two small portions of dog food and has not thrown up in over 2 1/2 hours. I will post how she is doing throughout the day and this evening.

    Thanks
