Q. My dachshund vomited through the night first yellow foaming then turned to a reddish color not eating eating much for two days. Why?

A. Any vomiting which contains blood (reddish color) should be investigated by a vet as soon as possible. Foreign bodies lodged in the stomach can cause irritation and bleeding and the sooner these are investigated and removed the quicker she will recover. Any profuse vomiting such as from gastritis or pancreatitis can cause some bleeding and can generally be managed with medication if there is no foreign body present
