  • When your dog throws up, or vomits, it’s likely that there is something not-quite-right (or even really wrong) with your dog’s gut. Good health begins in the gut, and if your dog’s microbiome isn’t functioning well, he can end up vomiting for a myriad of different reasons. The best way to prevent your dog from vomiting is to help ensure they have the best dog gut health they can have. Bernie’s Perfect Poop is the 4-in-1 digestive supplement that helps to balance and maintain a healthy gut in dogs.
  • The right amount of high-quality fiber is key for helping food move through your dog’s digestive tract as it should (not too fast, not too slow). That helps prevent any irritation, inflammation or blockages that could bring vomiting about in your dog. Bernie’s Perfect Poop is the perfect combination of Miscanthus grass, pumpkin and flaxseed. It’s a premium mix that also helps him get rid of bacteria, virus and irritants that may irritate your dog and cause him to vomit.
  • A dog’s immune system is controlled mostly by the health of his microbiome (his gut). The healthier your dog’s gut, the healthier his overall disposition is. A healthy gut means there is a balance between the good and bad bacteria that make their home in his digestive tract. If his gut is unbalanced, he may struggle with irritation and inflammation. To battle the symptoms of this irritation and inflammation, he may vomit. That’s why balancing your dog’s microbiome and strengthening his gut is key to help stop dog vomiting. Bernie’s Perfect Poop has pre-and probiotics that encourage a thriving gut flora. When your dog’s microbiome has the right balance of beneficial bacteria, he’ll experience less illness, less upset stomach and less inflammation in his gut. This also means he’ll vomit less.
  • The digestive enzymes in Bernie’s Perfect Poop can help stop dog vomit because they’ll help break his food down to absorbable nutrition. When your dog cannot easily break his food down, he won’t fully absorb all the nutrients, and some of the unbroken-down food can irritate and inflame his digestive tract. Additionally, when he’s able to absorb all the nutrition from his food as he should, his cells are fully fortified and ready to fight off other various causes of dog vomiting.
  • Bernie’s Perfect Poop is the perfect 4-in-1 combination of fiber, prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes. Good dog gut health is the best way to prevent your dog from vomiting. Whether they’ve gotten into something they shouldn’t have, or they’re having a hard time with dog digestion, Bernie’s Perfect Poop helps balance the digestive tract and provides a better gut microbiome. Better dog gut health means less (or no) dog vomiting.

“Bernie’s Perfect Poop is a Wonderful Product”

My 13 year old chihuahua has a very sensitive stomach and had been having issues with licking her hind end quite a bit and scratching at her ears. I started her on this about a month ago and so far she has been doing much better. No vomiting no licking and scratching. She also has a collapsing trachea and noticed she isn’t coughing and choking on water as much whether or not it is from the supplement helping or not but time will tell. So far I’m very pleased with the product and will continue to buy it. And she seems to like the taste I mix it in with her wet food. – Julie W.

What is dog vomiting?

Sometimes dogs regurgitate their food. Regurgitation is a passive process in a dog; he has no idea that it’s about to come up. It’ll seem like he loses everything he just ate. There won’t be any indication he’s about to bring it back, and that’s because it’s an involuntary process that doesn’t even involve muscle contraction like dog vomiting does. The regurgitant is coming from his pharynx or esophagus, not his stomach or intestines.

Canine Vomiting, on the other hand, is an active process. It involves muscles contracting and often your dog’s whole body will tense up. With dog vomiting, whatever he’s throwing up (food, foreign objects, etc.) comes from his small intestine or stomach. It’s made its way through that far in the digestive tract, and has mixed with the stomach acids in your dog’s stomach.

It’s that tensing up and muscular contraction you likely are hearing when your dog makes that awful, “Gluck, gluck, gluck,” sound and you know they’re about to upchuck. Vomitus (as opposed to regurgitant) will probably be food that is undigested or partially digested food. It’s usually accompanied by clear liquid (if it came from the stomach) or yellow/green liquid (bile, if it came from the small intestine). You may also see pieces of foreign objects if that is what is causing your dog to vomit in the first place. With vomiting, your dog may also give you an indication it’s coming because he may drool, pace or whine and his abdomen may have some pretty strong and loud gurgling noises.

The symptoms of canine vomiting include:

  • Abdominal Noise/Pain
  • Standing with their head down and a ‘worried’ look
  • Electrolyte Imbalance
  • Acid-based Disorders
  • Poor Appetite
  • Dehydration
  • Licking Lips
  • Excessive Salivation
  • Drooling
  • Panting
  • Lethargy
  • Weight Loss

Know when to see your veterinarian for help with vomiting

If your dog has excessive vomiting and also shows signs of diarrhea or poor appetite, you may want to check with your veterinarian. Dehydration is a significant condition that can occur with vomiting, and may need medical help. If your dog has chronic vomiting, please see your veterinarian as canine vomiting may also be linked to more severe conditions. Most importantly, if you know your dog ate something non-digestible like a corn cob (it happens!), call your vet and let them know.

More information about dog vomiting

Know the difference between acute and chronic dog vomiting

It’s important to know that acute dog vomiting (occasional) and chronic dog vomiting (happening more than once in a circumstance) are different. Pay attention so that you can talk with your vet about the times, places and types of dog throw-up you are experiencing.

Fiber may help with some dog vomiting

Fiber is often the number one go-to when it comes to helping your dog’s vomiting issues, but should be given in small amounts to help ease the stomach. Fiber also helps many other gastrointestinal issues like constipation, diarrhea, IBS and more. When vomiting is caused by constipation or a blockage, fiber will definitely help because it’ll get the food moving through the digestive tract as it should. Combining soluble and insoluble fibers as Bernie’s Perfect Poop does means fewer blockages. Additionally, fiber can slow the digestion of whatever your dog ate so there’s better nutrient absorption and less inflammation and irritation of their digestive tract. This can help relieve the nausea he may be feeling, which may be causing the vomit in the first place. Fibers like Miscanthus grass, flaxseed and pumpkin found in Bernie’s Perfect Poop help him have a more robust and less inflammatory digestive system. This may mean fewer dog vomit situations as well.

Prebiotics and probiotics may help dogs who throw up

A healthy dog gut is loaded with bacteria. While some of the bacteria are harmful, a healthy dog gut has the right balance of healthy to harmful, and the healthy bacteria (probiotics) keep his microbiome balanced. When your dog’s microbiome is balanced, that means there are enough beneficial bacteria present to ensure the harmful bacteria is kept to a minimum and your dog’s gut doesn’t get irritated or inflamed. He isn’t nauseated, and he doesn’t have a desire to bring stomach contents back up.

If it’s not balanced though, harmful bacteria can crowd out helpful bacteria and make his intestinal lining weak. This is when he feels sick and may start dry heaving before he actually vomits. Good concentrations of probiotics (healthy bacteria) allow your dog’s stomach and gut to be protected and strengthened. They also prevent harmful bacteria, viruses, allergens and more from making his muscles contract and bringing stomach/intestine contents back up.  A healthy dog microbiome is the best defense against canine vomiting.

The best way to give him that healthy microbiome is to ensure his digestive bacteria are balanced.  Prebiotics (food for probiotics) and probiotics balance your dog’s digestive tract bacteria and microbiome. One prebiotic in Bernie’s Perfect Poop is Inulin, which acts as a fertilizer to feed the good bacteria in your dog’s lower digestive tract. Additionally, an added bonus of the Miscanthus grass as the main fiber ingredient is that it has Xylooligosaccharides (XOS). The XOS prebiotic in Miscanthus grass has been clinically proven to add beneficial bacteria (and prohibit the growth of bad bacteria) in the gut.

When you add Bernie’s Perfect Poop to each of your dog’s meals, you’re giving him pre- and probiotics that will ensure that there are plenty of good bacteria to fight inflammation and irritation in his digestive tract. This will help his overall health, and help prevent additional vomit sessions.

Enzymes may help a dog stop vomiting

Enzymes in Bernie’s Perfect Poop will help your dog’s digestive tract break food down better. When food is better broken down, it’s more absorbable and your dog can have all the nutrition he needs to fuel his body. That keeps all the organs in his body functioning as they should be, and helps his digestive tract be as optimal as it can for proper digestion. This means there is less likelihood of a dog upset stomach, and less chance of your dog throwing food up.

Other ways to help

  • Comfort your dog. The mind and your dog’s gut are tightly connected.
  • Serve bland/comforting foods to settle the inflammation–think boiled skinless chicken, plain cooked rice
  • Ensure your dog is getting plenty of water, but in small, frequent amounts
  • Consider something with electrolytes to fend off dehydration
  • Serve clear, liquid diets (bone broth is great)
  • Give smaller, more frequent meals
  • Consider ginger treats to soothe his stomach
  • Refrain from table scraps
  • Pay attention to what he may be eating
  • Remove foreign objects/hazards if he’s likely to ingest
  • Talk to your vet about diet change if concerned about food intolerance
