Dog throwing up thick white mucus and water

QuestionI've had problems with throwing up for over a week now. My dog weighs 15 lbs and was diagnosed with gastric torsion by my vet 3 days ago. He has a tube surgically implanted in his stomach and the vet sd there was some scarring which could have put the torsion in motion. I just had a follow up surgery to remove the tube, and it was also placed upside down, and it just isn't helping. His vomit is coming up thick, but not watery or thin like I remember. It's thick, like thick cream with small puddles of it. I gave him some Tylan at a dosage of .01 mg/kg to treat his diarrhea. He still throws up a good bit. I gave him some Alpo before his surgery and some before the Tylan and since I have been on day 3 of tylen, it's not helping. I took him off Alpo after the surgery, and he still threw up the same, so I'm thinking he needs more Tylan, but I'm scared to give it to him as he's still throwing up. The vet told me to see a vet for other meds, but I really need something to help his throw up, or better yet, help him throw it up.

AnswerYou are correct that your dog could potentially be nauseous and need help with vomiting. As for treatment, there are a couple of options, the first of which is to add some tylodax to his food, or just about anything, with tylodax included. For a more natural approach, find a homeopathic remedy called chamomile or some other flowery remedy. You can find a homeopathic remedy by checking your local health food store and finding the homeopathic remedy for nausea and vomiting. Then, add some of the remedy to your dog's water. The second approach is to start him on a herbal remedy called belladonna which is also known as deadly nightshade and will really help with the vomiting. You can check with your vet for dosage, but I suggest starting at 1 mg per pound of body weight. Belladonna is one of the most reliable treatments avlable for many things including gastro-intestinal issues. Please keep in mind that some dogs may be sensitive to belladonna and its derivatives.

I will be interested to hear how your dog is doing after all the treatment. Your description of your dog's symptoms would indicate a lot of problems on his stomach. He needs to be checked out and treated. There are a lot of medications for dogs that work quite well on gastrointestinal issues and nausea. I would suggest you find a good homeopathic veterinarian. I know a good one in your area.
