Upset stomach and vomiting are common symptoms of many underlying health problems that dogs face. Some of these causes are mild, such as eating too quickly. Other causes can be more serious and require urgent treatment, such as having intestinal blockage problems.

You should call the vet for appropriate advice, especially if your dog is acting abnormally. In the meantime, some of these home remedies may be appropriate for reducing the discomfort and stress the dog feels from vomiting and having an upset stomach.

1. Switch to a bland diet

Your dog’s stomach may feel a bit more settled if you make a temporary switch to their diet. The dog’s meal should consist of something bland and light while they are recovering from an upset stomach. This could be foods like 100% canned pumpkin puree (without any additives like sugar) or plain boiled rice.

2. Keep your dog hydrated

Your dog is likely to feel dehydrated due to the bouts of vomiting. Make sure the dog always has access to clean drinking water. It may also help to feed them natural treats that are rich in water content, such as cucumbers. If your dog is refusing to drink much water, it may also help to add a bit of water to the kibbles.

3. Try slippery elm bark

Check with the vet first before you give your dog some slippery elm bark. This digestive aid can provide dogs some relief if they are suffering from gastrointestinal health conditions like upset stomachs, diarrhea, and acid reflux. It may help reduce the dog’s symptoms by coating and soothing the dog’s stomach and intestines.

It’s important to note that none of these home remedies will help if the vomiting and upset stomach is caused by something serious such as intestinal blockage. You should never assume your dog is okay, even if they act normal after throwing up. We strongly recommend calling the vet in the best interest of your dog’s health.
