Dog Vomiting: Should I Call My Vet? | Dr. Nancy Reese Deep Dive

Dr. Nancy Reese weighs in on when vomiting is a concern and what you and your vet can do about it – especially if your pup has cancer.


Vomiting can be caused by a variety of things, ranging from eating garbage to a serious illness. It can also be a side effect of chemotherapy treatment.

In most cases, vomiting once isn’t a big concern. If the dog vomits multiple times within a single day, vomits for several days in a row, or has other symptoms of illness in addition to the vomiting, it’s time to seek veterinary care.

Dr. Nancy discusses several different treatment options depending on the underlying cause of your dog’s vomiting. Cerenia (maropitant) is great for preventing nausea, while some over-the-counter antacids can combat stomach acid overproduction. And making sure your dog stays hydrated is always a good step for health!
