Hello,

You're through to Dr. Edele, a UK vet.

Please ignore any requests for a phone call as the website sends these automatically.

I have some questions to help me best advise you about Coffee.

1) When did the vomiting start?

2) How many times has Coffee vomited?

3) Has Coffee eaten today?

4) Is he being fed the same as the breeder had been feeding him?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
From yesterday vomited twice, yes he has eat and i think so

Has he vomited since he ate?

There are a few things that could cause this. Is he still playful?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he vomited his food a bit after he eat it and he is now playful but earlier he wasn’t

Ok, it may be that he's a little stressed. Monitor him tonight and make sure he's peeing and pooping.

You can offer him some bland food this evening (boiled chicken and sweet potato or rice). just a small amount. You can also offer him a little of the broth cooled down to drink to keep him hydrated. After eating try have him rest a little bit so that he's not playing so much he makes himself sick.

If he becomes dull/depressed or the vomiting gets worse or he has diarrhoea then you should take him to your vets as he may need an anti-sickness medication.
