Vomiting


Herbal treatments for pets to help stop vomiting problems and keep cats and dogs healthy.

A healthy digestive tract is critical to overall health and well-being. The digestive health of an animal can impact not only the breakdown and absorption of nutrients, but can also have a significant impact on other body systems including the immune system, the liver, bone marrow and adrenals.

Digestive dysfunction can result in abdominal cramping and pain in animals. Like humans, abdominal discomfort may be caused by an accumulation of gas in the abdomen and can be extremely painful.  Dogs and cats of all ages and breeds may be affected by abdominal pain, although some breeds are likely at greater risk than others.

Vomiting is characterized by the contents of the stomach being ejected. This may happen to our pets from time to time – as a result of common factors or as a result of more serious health problems. Cats tend to vomit far more than dogs.

Symptoms of vomiting in cats and dogs include:

Heaving

Retching

Partially digested food coming up, along with a yellow fluid (bile)

Blood in the vomit (consult your vet as this can signal an ulcer or cancer)

The most common cause of acute vomiting is a dietary one – your pet may eat something that does not agree with them, they may run too fast after a meal or they may not be used to certain foods. Dogs may feel slightly nauseous from too hot weather, or they may have ingested hair. 

Cats may also vomit as a result of hairballs in the stomach or throat. With older pets the muscle of the esophagus loses tone – this means food will not travel down the esophagus to the stomach as it should, resulting in regurgitation.

Some of the possible causes for chronic vomiting are:

Ulcers

Cancer

Pancreatitis

Tumors of the pancreas

Kidney failure

Liver failure

Uterine infection (more common as an animal reaches middle age)

Ketoacidosis (a form of diabetes)

Addison’s disease

Diseases of the inner ear

Ingestion of foreign object

Gastritis from ingestion of bad food or hair

Bladder obstruction or rupture

Infectious diseases (canine distemper, canine parvovirus, and feline panleukopenia virus)

Elevated thyroid function (in cats)

Heart worm disease (in cats) 

Dietary intolerance is a leading cause of digestive upset in pets. It only takes intolerance to a single ingredient in your pet’s food to cause digestive complaints such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Opt for high quality, grain free, balanced diets filled with unprocessed foods. You may have to experiment with a few different food brands and protein sources to determine which is the best for your pet’s digestive system.

Make sure your pet has plenty of fresh, filtered, clean water available at all times. Many cats are fussy water drinkers and may only drink from water sources other than their water bowel, such as from running taps, baths, or your drinking glass. Keep at least two sources of water around for your pet.

Food and water bowels should be made from glass, ceramics or stainless steel, and not plastic. Plastic is porous and can harbor bacteria. Bowels should also be washed regularly with hot water.

Many pets will refuse to eat if they are feeling ill. This natural fasting process give’s your pet’s digestive system time to rest and heal, so don’t worry too much if your otherwise healthy pet skips a meal. If however, your pet doesn’t eat for 48 hours, or shows other symptoms of illness, then a trip to the vet is necessary.

Certain foods such as onions and chocolate are toxic for pets and should never be given as treats. Other human foods can also cause digestive upsets such as spicy, rich foods.

Furballs can seriously disrupt the digestive system and cause a number of digestive complaints. It is therefore important to manage furballs with regular grooming and natural supplements, if they are a problem for your pet.

Conventional Remedies: 

Determining a cause for your pet’s vomiting or regurgitation may take some time. You will most likely need to cooperate with your veterinarian in trying to pinpoint the cause. Your veterinarian will need to determine whether the cause is gastric or non-gastric (based in the stomach, or not). 

Pay close attention to the pattern of your pet’s vomiting so you can give a thorough description of the symptoms. If coughing is the cause, your vet will look into your pet’s mouth to see if a foreign object has become caught in the esophageal opening. An x-ray may also be used to determine if there is an object deeper in the esophagus, or in the stomach. 

Initially, with any vomiting or diarrhea, a 12-24 hours fast (yet still giving the pet fluids) is recommended to allow the system to clean out. This is usually followed by a bland diet of boiled chicken or meat and rice or potato in small amounts, slowly returning to its normal meals. 

Once the cause of the vomiting is determined, your veterinarian will be able to come up with a course of treatment. Anti-emetics, Antibiotics and Corticosteroids may be prescribed. These drugs may relieve your pet’s symptoms but they also have serious side effects. Some of these drugs can cause your pet to have more problems with his or her digestion, while immuno suppressant drugs can lower his or her resistance to illness.
