Why Does My Pooch Look Sick?
Sometimes your companion will look nauseous, and there are several reasons for this. The first thing to do is look at the circumstances. If he has been playing outside in the hot-summer heat, he may have a mild case of heatstroke or be slightly dehydrated. This is very common in dogs with heavy coats. If this is the case, he might seem clumsy or lethargic, maybe even drooling or having a very dry mouth. Giving the pooch a bowl of cool water and letting him in the house as the first step in alleviating his fatigue.
Can Canines Get Carsickness?
Dogs can also get carsick, just like people. In canines, carsickness usually starts with
drooling and dry heaves. If nauseous in the car, the veterinarian can prescribe medications that are a very safe and effective. Having him lie down while feeding him a dry biscuit will be more than calming. Some owners believe heavily tinting the car windows will lessen the nausea, though no studies have been conducted to support this alternative.
Watch For Posion
Those that have been outside might also have eaten something potentially toxic. If the pup vomits to expel anything he has eaten while outside, as unpleasant as it is, the owner should take a closer look at the substance. If it looks unlike common trash or matter, consult your veterinarian; your furry friend could be poisoned.
