I don’t want to end up like one of the pet-neglecting jerks from this thread, but I’m not quite convinced I should go to the vet, either.
Eight month-old dachshund puppy (who may or may not look like this) has been throwing up almost every second or third day for the past two weeks. Though she does like eating garbage and things off the street (I discourage this, obviously, and fish it out of her mouth when I notice), the vomit tends to be either milky saliva or pretty much plain dry dog food, with occasional blades of grass.
Other than the puking, she is ‘normal’ (chasing her tail, making weird noises and licking strangers), though quite skinny. I changed her food a few weeks ago (tried to do it gradually but pretty much switched it over two days) – could that be it? The ingredients seem healthy. She does tend to ignore the food for a bit then gobble the stuff down, though.
Any ideas? She’ll be off to the vet to get fixed soon enough and I intend on asking then.
