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
With the way you drive, is it a surprise?
Metabolic or Infectious Disease
Diabetes, Kidney failure
Disorders of the Gastrointestinal Tract
Parasites, Parvo Virus
Pancreatitis, Liver Disease
Now which one would you like my receptionist to guess your pet has?
