Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Cole has this issue.When did he start vomiting?
Are his gums pink and wet?
Any other signs such as diarrhoea, a reduced appetite or lethargy?
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
He started vomiting today has pink gums no diarrhoea still eating
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 10 days ago.
Thank you for this additional information.Has he been able to hold some food and water down?Any chance he has had something to eat which he shouldn't have such as rich human food, a bone or a toxin?
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 10 days ago.

Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I shall certainly try.

Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.

Mild vomiting will usually resolve within 24 hours and the dog should remain well and with a good appetite. We can feed boiled chicken and rice little and often and plenty of water. Allow Cole to rest.

However, if he has dry gums or seems unwell, there is a concern this may be another bout bout pancreatitis (or something else) and a vet visit is best.
