Dog Vomiting Monthly
by Kiza Macareno
We have a 2 yr old Havenese dog, almost monthly we have problems with his health, he vomits and has diarrhea since we've had him 1 yr ago. We have changed his food from Nutro sensitive stomach to now Science Diet Light.
Its been going good but the other day he started throwing up again , at times its watery at times his own food he ate is thrown up.
I don't know what else it can be ?

I’m afraid that the list of possible causes of chronic, intermittent vomiting and diarrhea in dogs is extremely long, and I probably can’t be of much help to you in this forum.
I’m hesitant to give you any recommendations for symptomatic treatment because the problem has been going on for a year and some of the potential causes are quite serious and need to be addressed directly.
If you have not already done so, your best option is to take your dog to see a veterinarian. After a physical exam, be prepared for him or her to recommend a fecal examination (to look for intestinal parasites and/or bacterial overgrowth) and perhaps blood work (to check organ function), an abdominal X-ray, or other diagnostic tests.
Once your dog’s condition has been diagnosed, the vet will be able to talk to you about treatment.
