Q. My dog has whipworms and can't keep anything down, he is being hydrated with fluids is there something else that could be a problem
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. In my experience whipworms alone don't cause vomiting. They live in the cecum (something like our appendix) and large intestine so typically the signs of whipworm infestation include diarrhea and occasionally anemia, if the infestation is severe and long-standing. I would be looking for other causes of vomiting, including foreign body ingestion, eating something toxic, infectious gastroenteritis (bacterial or viral), pancreatitis, and liver and kidney problems. I'm not saying he doesn't have whipwrorms, I'm just saying that yes, there could definitely be something else going on.
