Question
Last night my dog threw up several times and then it looks like she rubbed the top of her nose on the carpet so much the skin peeled off and she got blood streaks all over the carpet. Why would she do this. Do you have any experience with this type of sinerio? If so what are you ideas?
Thank You

Answer

Hi Ashley,

When your dog vomited, it's possible some of her vomit went up into her nasal cavity (the nose and the throat are connected) and it was uncomfortable for her.

If your dog continues to vomit over the next 36 hours, or she continues to rub her muzzle so violently that she's scraping off her skin, it's time to have her examined by your vet.

Best of luck,

Patti

Expertise

To date, I've owned 7 dogs, all of which have lived into old age. Having cared for them in all stages of life, I feel I can offer sound advice to other pet owners, and people considering getting a dog. I am knowledgeable about the AKC (American Kennel Club) dog breeds, training and exercise, caring for sick and elderly pets, feeding, as well as many holistic treatments pets can benefit from. My only request is that you write me using standard English and punctuation.

Experience

My life experience in this field is more like "on the job training" rather than an actual degree in animal welfare. You may benefit from my experiences over the past 30 years. Aside from the dogs I've owned, I'm also involved in "breed rescue" and have fostered several dogs, all of which have been adopted to wonderful "forever homes". I find helping people who want a dog very rewarding.
