We love our canine companions and never want to see them sick even for a day! Yet, they become ill just like we do. Sometimes this involves throwing up. Throw up, or vomit is never pleasant to deal with. However, the focus should on the dog and trying to figure out what’s causing her to be so sick.

Has your female dog been throwing up? Are you worried she could be sick? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We understand it can be scary when your dog is throwing up.

We’ve put together some reasons why your dog may be throwing up and how you can help her. Let’s get started!

What’s Causing Your Female Dog to Throw Up?

It’s not unusual for dogs to vomit. Even healthy dogs may get sick to their stomachs and it’s challenging to find the cause. A dog may throw up if they ate too fast, swallowed something whole, or even ate too much grass. This is all normal vomiting that’s limited to once or twice. You don’t need to worry about this kind of vomiting.
