I'm saving you $60 bucks

My puppy threw up. For no good reason. She acted fine before and after the incident, but I got scared, went to the vet. He said make this soup:

1 carrot
2 chicken breasts
1/2 cup rice
2 cups water

Boil up, give to puppy for 2 days.
Dog is fine now. My wallet is lighter.
Sometimes I guess they just throw up?????

Yeah, they do. She might have eaten something in the yard--you never know with pups! Our vet always said to cook some lean ground beef and mix with white rice. I guess it's the same idea as what yours suggested, but yours sounds healthier. Glad she's feeling better!

Yes they do - and it's usually in the middle of the night while they are sleeping with you

Thanks for the recipe. A friend has a dog AND a son with nervous stomachs. The dog is on tranquilizers.

So what's worse - the silent doggy barf - or the cat in the middle of the night with a hair ball - where you can hear it but can't see it? :D

LOL Your guys break me up. How about This. Riding in car, puppy sitting on DH shoulder, against seat, up-chucks. He must have been eating acorns. Made a quick stop at a Dollar store for clean up stuff.
Or: 5 o'clock in the morning, bare-foot, to the kitchen to make coffee.
YUK-YUK

Now, I need to know how to index this recipe to my file.

No onions in the soup. Onions, garlic, chocolate and grapes/raisins are known to be "poisonous" to the dog., CHOCOLATE is supposed to be deadly. There are other things too. Although I have a neighbor that says he gives his dog EVERYTHING and has never had a problem.

I have a 4 month old puppy and kitten and they both up chuck now and then and for the puppy it is usually from something she has picked up in the yard. Everything in the mouth ya know.The kitten just eats to fast. I also have another older, long haired cat and she gets those nasty hairballs. I give her medicine for the hairballs but she still gets them but not as often.In our house at night if you have to get up put slippers on or turn on lights and watch where ya step.

Thumpershere2, we had the same problem with our cat until the vet gave us a good trick to use: elevate the cat's food bowl--we have ours on a brick. It's helped a lot! That's not to say that he doesn't eat too fast and get sick now and then (like this morning!), but it's a lot better than it used to be. It may have something to do with getting less air in his tummy while he eats? Who knows, but at least it helps!
