Q. My dog has thrown up 5 times today. I bought her new food and yesterday I gave her some of my chicken. Please help

Answered By

A. If your dog has not vomited while on the old food and started onvomiting on the new food then there is a possibility that she cannot handle the new food. I would stop feeding the new, give her some bland food (rice and broth and a bit of chicken) for a day or two. Then you start with the old food again and bit by bit add the new food. If she does not stop vomiting you need to take her to the vet as there could be a more serious reason for the vomiting (pancreatitis, obstruction, etc)
