As we've already said, if the only signal that our dog is suffering a disease is throwing up, the most probable cause is he is having intolerance to some kind of food. The animal's instincts may lead it to not want to eat that food again, but to detect that food doesn't agree with it, you should go to the vet so the dog can be tested accordingly. A change in diet is also recommendable.


A parasite can be the cause that makes your dog throw up frequently. In this case, you should de-worm it yourself, which you can do by giving it the correct amount of medicine, according to its age and weight.


If your dog throws up frequently, on the other hand, it can also be due to food poisoning. To avoid any further harm, the most timely measure you can take is to take your dog to an emergency vet, so they can wash its stomach if necessary.


In case of frequent vomiting, our dog will be dehydrated, so you need to give it water frequently. If it needs to, it will drink by itself, don't force it to do so.
