Vet visit timing for dogs

Dog vomiting or diarrhea rarely causes an emergency. "Occasional digestive distress in dogs is common," adds Dr. Newton. "It could be attributed to various factors, such as eating something they shouldn't have or stress."

Watch how your dog behaves. "If your dog's symptoms are mild and she's still in good spirits, try the bland diet apprach for a day or two," says Dr. Kong. 

If your dog is trying to vomit but can't , projectile vomiting, vomiting frequently, has bile or unusual material in their vomit, can't keep water down, or shows signs of bloating, discomfort, or depression, call your vet immediately.
