What is Vomiting of Blood?

Vomiting of blood, called hematemesis, is a fairly common symptom in dogs that can be associated with a number of different diseases. Vomited blood is easily recognizable when it is fresh, but if it is partially digested it often has a dark grainy appearance, similar to old coffee grounds. Any problem that erodes the lining of the stomach can expose arteries and cause gastrointestinal hemorrhage that will make your dog vomit blood. Ulcers, gastritis or drugs like NSAID’s are common reasons. Tumors located in the stomach or esophagus can also cause this problem, as well as infections like coronavirus and parvovirus. Less obvious sources are liver or kidney disease, shock, internal trauma that bleeds into the stomach, and diseases that affect blood coagulation. Hematemesis should be distinguished from coughing of blood (hemoptysis), which is due to a respiratory problem, although occasionally dogs may swallow blood from a respiratory tract disorder and vomit it up in a similar way to hematemesis. Sometimes sores on the mouth or dental problems with bleeding are also mistaken if the source of the blood is not obvious. Hematemesis is a nonspecific symptom, but it can be a sign of serious disease.

Dogs may vomit blood for a variety of reasons. Veterinarians call this hematemesis. Depending on the amount of blood that is present, it can be associated with mild problems like stomach upset, or with serious life-threatening conditions.

Symptoms of Vomiting of Blood in Dogs

Take your dog to see a veterinarian if you notice any of the following symptoms. Vomiting of large amounts of blood should be treated as an emergency.

  • Vomit containing specks of blood
  • Vomit with dark grains that look like coffee grounds
  • Vomiting large amounts of blood
  • Concurrent symptoms such as diarrhea, hematochezia (blood in the stool), fever, or shock

Types

Hematemesis may be either acute or chronic.

  • Acute – sudden severe symptoms
  • Chronic – regularly vomiting material that contains blood several times per week

Causes of Vomiting of Blood in Dogs

There are numerous different conditions that could cause your dog to vomit blood. These are some of the most likely.

  • Ulcers
  • Gastritis (acute, chronic, or hemorrhagic gastroenteritis)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Gastrointestinal cancer (Leiomyoma, Carcinoma, Lymphoma, Gastrinoma)
  • Infectious diseases (canine parvovirus, coronavirus)
  • Parasites (hookworm, roundworm, coccidia)
  • Drugs (NSAID’s, corticosteroids)
  • Shock (hypovolemic from blood loss, septic from toxicity, neurogenic from trauma to the brain)
  • Liver disease
  • Hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s syndrome)
  • Kidney disease
  • Foreign objects
  • Coagulopathy (thrombocytopenia, disseminated intravascular coagulation, clotting factor deficiency, rat poisoning)
  • Vigorous vomiting (usually produces only specks of blood)
  • Bleeding in the mouth
  • Swallowing blood from a respiratory tract disorder

Diagnosis of Vomiting of Blood in Dogs

Hematemesis is not a diagnosis in itself, but is an important symptom that will help the veterinarian identify your dog’s condition. You will need to give a complete medical history; medications like NSAID’s or corticosteroids can be especially important. Recent vaccination, exposure to poisoning, or potential trauma that could cause internal bleeding or shock are also relevant. A good description of your dog’s symptoms, including how much blood is present and whether the problem is acute or chronic, will help to eliminate some possibilities. Other symptoms like fever, diarrhea, or signs of shock can indicate what might be wrong with your dog.

Depending on the severity of the condition, blood tests will usually be taken to check for anemia, clotting disorders, or high levels of white blood cells from infection. This can also help to diagnose liver and kidney disease as well as paraneoplastic syndromes from cancer. Urine analysis can further evaluate many of these conditions. Ultrasound or x-rays may be necessary to check for cancerous tumors or internal injuries.

Treatment of Vomiting of Blood in Dogs

Dogs that are very ill and have lost a lot of blood may need immediate blood or plasma transfusions. Intravenous fluids and electrolytes will treat shock and balance dehydration from vomiting. Severe forms of gastritis, especially hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, can be life-threatening if they are not treated immediately. Viral infections like parvovirus and coronavirus will need to be managed symptomatically in this fashion also. Antibiotics may be given to eliminate vomiting caused by bacterial infection.

If the problem is related to chronic gastritis or ulcers, the veterinarian will treat your dog with antacids and antiemetics. Further treatments may then focus on eliminating the source of these diseases. Dogs may need to be treated for an autoimmune problem or follow a strict diet to avoid allergens. Activated charcoal may be given for drug overdoses or poisoning. Other medications may focus on eliminating parasites as well as treating liver or kidney disease. NSAID’s will be discontinued. Dogs with cancerous tumors, foreign objects, or internal injury may need surgery. In the case of an injury, emergency surgery could be required. For cancer, chemotherapy may be recommended post-surgery, or in the case of inoperable tumors.

Recovery of Vomiting of Blood in Dogs

The veterinarian will evaluate your dog’s chance of recovery upon diagnosis. Many conditions, especially those with only a small amount of blood can be treated easily and your dog will make a full recovery. Some conditions, like cancer, or liver and kidney disease, may require long-term management. Others can be immediately life threatening. Effective treatment will depend on the severity of your dog’s condition and the promptness of medical treatment.

I woke up at two in the morning to let my 14 month old Aussie Shepherd/blue nose pit bull mix outside to potty. He usually has a little drink of water and then we go back to bed, instead he gagged and spit up a small puddle of yellow spittle, then a smaller amount that got clearer and then two more smaller amounts that looked like pinkish spit. What do I do?

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2009 Recommendations
There are a few causes for Barnaby vomiting or bring up a little yellow or pinkish fluid which may include a small tummy bug (not uncommon in younger dogs), empty stomach (stomach acid in an empty stomach may cause irritation and vomiting), gastric ulcers (stomach acid again), intestinal obstruction, foreign objects, parasites, poisoning among other causes. You should ensure that Barnaby stays hydrated and offer for him small regular portions of a bland food (boiled chicken and rice); if there is no improvement or he continues vomiting you should visit your Veterinarian or an Emergency Veterinarian.

Vomiting blood

My dog Kylo woke up at around 4ish am and started throwing up 2 times, just yellow foam mostly. Then again an hour later, and again an hour after that but 3 times. The vomit is foamy on top with a liquid underneath. About 3 hours after that he didn't throw up again to my knowledge until he threw up 3 times, 2 of the times he threw up there was a little bit of blood in it.

I dont know if this is important, but the vomit happens in quick succession then stops for an hour.

This may be important, hes been eating German Shepherd specific dog food for the past few months as my mother insisted that he could eat it too.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2009 Recommendations
Whilst a German Shepherd specific dog food shouldn’t cause any major issues for an Australian Shepherd, for the time being try to feed Kylo a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice; once the vomiting is under control you can reintroduce either a complete general dog food or a specific Australian Shepherd diet. Diet, infections, foreign objects, parasites, gastric ulcers, poisoning among other causes may have lead to this vomiting; feed the boiled chicken and rice for a few days to see how you go, if things get worse or don’t improve visit your Veterinarian. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Thank you! I was very worried about him, but this made me feel a bit better.

Thank you for your email. It might be worth having him seen by your veterinarian to make sure that he hasn't damaged his esophagus. He may also benefit from a harness type leash vs a collar if he pulls that enthusiastically when he is walking, so he doesn't continue to traumatize his trachea and esophagus. I hope that all is well with Burton!

Bloody

My dog has been vomiting up bloody type phlem. sometimes small amounts and sometimes extremely large amounts.
He's extremely well trained and if he's gagging or needs the toilet he'll run outside or he will beg to open the door. In this case he has no control and will almost immediately vomit it up. Sometimes without any noise at all. he's such a bubbly and friendly dog quite often and he gets very withdrawn (by withdrawn I mean tired and sad looking) however he is always by my side.

Sometimes it's specks of blood and very very mucus like but relatively thin and other times it looks like clumps of blood mixed with thick spit and chunky leftovers. A big blob of it.

I use to be overly dramatic over my dogs and it was only until I proved my parents right with my other dog (had glaucoma) that they slowly believed me but being the older one they don't suggest the vet and I'm worried that I won't take him and it'll be too late

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

If Teddy is gagging it is difficult to say whether the ‘phlegm’ is coming from the stomach or from the respiratory tract and without an examination I cannot determine anything; however, you can try to feed Teddy a diet of boiled chicken and rice in small regular portions four times per day at a minimum to ensure that his stomach is not empty and the food is non-irritating. Apart from that, you would need to visit a Veterinarian, there are charity clinics in many towns and cities which will do work for donations etc… have a Google search of your area.

Bloody Vile

I had my dog at the vet last night just for a check up and she said everything was fine, and he was.

He woke my partner and I up in the early hours of this morning though, making a horrible gagging sound and then threw up two little piles of bloody vile. It's now a few hours later and he has done it again.

He's had quite a few rawhide things (Christmas) so I don't know if it is maybe a cut or irritation from the sharpness. He has also thrown up a couple of times the past few days which were not bloody and coughed a lot. He got a rubber toy for Christmas though, and when he's thrown up it had little blue bits in it so we assumed the coughing/gagging and obviously the vomiting was due to this. Could the bloody bile be from this also?

He is in perfect condition. He was full of beans as usual last night, been eating his food and keeping hydrated, no trauma etc. Nothing physically has changed in him and as said before the vet said he was fine last night, so it's worrying that just a few hours later he's doing this.

My plan is to see how is he is the rest of the day, so far he hasn't eaten or drank (this is normal for him), and hasn't been for a poo so I can't look at his stool. If he doesn't improve the rest of the day I'm going to call the vet as my partner is at work until later on.

In the mean time can you please advise what you think might be the cause and anything I can do?

Thank you.

There are a few possible causes for the vomiting of bloody bile which would most likely be attributable to gastric bleeding which may be caused by ulceration, trauma from a foreign object or poisoning. It is difficult to say specifically what may be causing this to occur for Junior but I would recommend trying to feed a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice whilst maintaining hydration; I don’t want to recommend any acid reducers or anything else as I don’t want to skew any finding which your Veterinarian may find during an examination later.

Thank you for your question. If Cooper is throwing up blood, he needs to be seen by your veterinarian. There are many causes for this, including parasites, intestinal blockage, intestinal infection, and infectious diseases. Without examining him, I can't recommend anything as I do not know which of these conditions might be affecting him. Your veterinarian will be able to examine him, and determine the best treatment for him. I hope that he is okay.

I have a pug it's 5 months old and now he died.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2009 Recommendations
Whilst sudden death from medication is very uncommon, it may occur if a dog has an adverse reaction; however, the cause of the loss of appetite and fever most likely is the cause of death and vomiting blood would indicate a bleed in the gastrointestinal tract which would explain the symptoms. If an ulcer perforated or any severe infection cause cause death. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Does it mean this dog has any problem the moment its born or something else Sir?

Does I mean it's born with disease or something?

There are a few causes for these episodes of vomiting including infection, poisoning, parasites, intestinal obstruction among other disorders; it is important to continue to get Taylor to eat with chicken and rice or eggs and rice which should be easily digestible. You should try to feed in small regular portions every few hours so that there is always something in the stomach so the acid doesn’t irritate the stomach as much, famotidine (0.25mg/lb twice per day) may reduce the acid in the stomach. If you are not seeing any improvement, visit your Veterinarian. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

my dog vomited blood this morning, and i thought it was something he ate but when i took a closer look i knew it was blood. i looked it up online and the symptoms matched to a stomach ulcer: blood vomit, dark almost black colored feces, and increased amount of farting. he doesn’t have his shots yet i’m getting them on Saturday but is this life threatening? he also gags frequently but doesn’t always vomit. he doesn’t seem to be in any kind of pain

Seizures can be difficult to manage and a balance of medication needs to be found as no two dogs will respond exactly the same to medical management; in some cases it is a trial and error thing. Vomiting blood may be attributable gastric ulcers (which may be side effects of medications), medications like omeprazole or famotidine may help with that and you should discuss this with your Veterinarian. There is no one fits all treatment for seizures and finding a management plan which is effective may be a long process. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Vomiting blood is serious and indicates a bleed in the stomach or oesophagus. The white slimy vomit would have been due to an empty stomach and acid irritation, excess acid and no food consumption can lead to ulcers which bleed.

There is no simple answer to why a dog maybe vomiting blood, the cause maybe something simple as an infection or as aggressive as cancer. The causes of blood in vomit are gastric ulcers, foreign bodies, tumours, poisoning, infections, parasites, coagulopathies, kidney disease etc… (the list goes on). It would be beneficial for Mia to see her Veterinarian to make sure that the cause isn’t something malicious; but you could try giving her some Pepcid (famotidine) which should help with the stomach acid to calm down the irritation and feed her some boiled chicken and rice. If the symptoms persist, you see black tarry faeces, fever, pale gums are any other new symptom, visit your Veterinarian or Emergency Veterinarian immediately regardless of cost.

If the surgery was on the upper gastrointestinal tract (stomach or oesophagus) or there is a large volume of blood, I would highly recommend visit your Veterinarian again for a checkup regardless of cost; causes for vomiting blood are gastric ulcers, upper respiratory tract bleeding, foreign bodies, severe infections, tumours and other causes.

Some types of clover plant may cause gastric irritation and vomiting; it would be best to withhold food for 24 hours and then give a diet of boiled chicken and rice (33%:67%), also giving Pepcid (famotidine) at a dose of 0.25mg/lb twice per day will reduce the acid in the stomach. If you are unsure which dogs was affected, it would hurt to initially put both dogs on the same diet and monitor both of them. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM
