There are several potential causes for your dog's vomiting. One possibility is dietary indiscretion, which occurs when a dog eats something that doesn't agree with their stomach. This can include eating spoiled food, ingesting foreign objects, or consuming something toxic. Another common cause is gastrointestinal upset, which can be triggered by changes in diet, food allergies, or sensitivities. Stress or anxiety can also lead to vomiting in some dogs.

It's positive to hear that your dog has been eating and drinking fine, as this suggests that her appetite and hydration levels are normal. However, the fact that she has vomited multiple times, both last night and this morning, is concerning. Persistent vomiting can lead to dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, and nutrient deficiencies, so it's important to address the issue promptly.

Before taking your dog to the hospital, there are a few things you can try at home to help alleviate her symptoms. Firstly, you can withhold food for 12 to 24 hours to give her stomach a chance to settle. However, it's crucial to ensure she has access to fresh water to prevent dehydration. After the fasting period, you can gradually reintroduce a bland diet consisting of boiled chicken and rice or a prescription gastrointestinal diet recommended by your veterinarian.

Additionally, you can try giving your dog small, frequent meals instead of one large meal to reduce the strain on her stomach. It's important to avoid giving her any table scraps, treats, or new foods during this time. Keeping her in a calm and stress-free environment can also help alleviate any anxiety that may be contributing to her symptoms.

While these home remedies may help in some cases, there are certain situations that warrant an immediate visit to the veterinarian. If your dog's vomiting becomes more frequent or severe, if she shows signs of abdominal pain or discomfort, if she becomes lethargic or weak, or if she develops other concerning symptoms such as diarrhea, blood in the vomit, or a distended abdomen, it's crucial to seek veterinary attention right away.
