There is no magical way to prevent a dog from vomiting. Prevention requires identification and removal of the underlying cause of the condition. Because there are so many diverse causes of vomiting, there is no one protocol to recommend. In general, dogs should not be exposed to potentially toxic substances. They also should have regular veterinary examinations to ensure their good health. High-quality nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, with moderate exercise, lots of fresh air, warm and comfortable housing and plenty of human companionship, are also important to maintaining the good health of our beloved canine companions.
If the dog throws up undigested food once or twice a week, he may be suffering from an underlying stomach infection. Pets that have a weak digestive system are predisposed to indigestion, gastrointestinal intolerance and other illnesses like inflammatory bowel syndrome . Such pets often refuse to eat most commercially available foods and show signs of listlessness and lack of appetite. Most often than not, chronic vomiting is associated with an inflammation of the intestines. Certain foods the pet ingests may also aggravate the inflammation in the intestines and cause vomiting.
