Some fur-parents might get worried about their pet anytime it throws up...this would be unnecessary in Calypso's case. Every time she has thrown up it has always been bile. You know...that nasty, yellow-green, slimy fluid that aids digestion...and, maybe not so well known, is the last resort throw up content when your stomach is empty. It happens to have the same function in animals as it does humans. It's also a rare occasion with her.
Calypso's eating schedule is twice a day. Her breakfast, actually all of my pups, is around 7am, and her dinner is between 7pm and 8pm. What I found is that the only times she has gotten "sick" is when there's been too much time between meals, or she had significant exercise and I hadn't made up for that in her amount of food. After she eats she never get's ill/throws up again. Like I said, she's pretty darned PERFECT!
However, this is not the case for all animals, and one should always keep their eyes on their pet if they think something is off in their health. In the spirit of World Health Day, I have two offerings. The first is a link to a website that is a great resource on dogs and throwing up bile (what a gift!!). The second is a simple graphic that lists 5 Symptoms of a Sick Dog. I am not a veterinarian, so please always consult your pet's health professional if you have any concerns about your pet's health.
Happy World Health Day...make it great for you and for your fur-friends!!
Why is my dog throwing up bile?
