Why Does My Dog Vomit?

Before you call my receptionist and complain that she only tells you the dog or cat needs to be seen, I'd like to give you a list of the most common reasons a dog or cat will vomit:

Dietary Indiscretion or Intolerance
Includes road kill, hairballs and Gorilla Glue

Drug Related Problems
Includes side effects and the dog getting into your "medication"

Includes that house plant you kept from college

Motion Sickness
With the way you drive, is it a surprise?

Metabolic or Infectious Disease
Diabetes, Kidney failure

Disorders of the Gastrointestinal Tract
Parasites, Parvo Virus

Abdominal Disorders
Pancreatitis, Liver Disease

Now which one would you like my receptionist to guess your pet has?
