My two-year-old male Labrador is not eating, he is vomiting. Please do let me know what I can do.


Vomiting is merely a sign and may result from many disorders (digestive and non-digestive like kidney, liver, etc). Most vomiting cases are acute and reversible requiring only supportive and symptomatic therapy. Generally, it is advised to withhold food and water for at least 24 hours and introduce highly digestible food like rice, avoiding high fat diets. In contrast to acute problems, chronic ones are rarely self-limiting and it is usually essential to establish specific diagnosis (with help from lab tests/investigations) and appropriate therapy.
