Dog Vomit In Middle of Night

Windy, who didn’t make it to the back door Monday.

Sick children wake their parents up at night, and furkids are no exceptions.

About 4 a.m. a few days ago I woke to a warm wetness on my back. Then I heard the gagging. I knew if I rolled one way the mess on my back would get on the bed. I yelled for my husband.

He hit the light on his side of the bed. He saw Windy. He saw vomit. He groaned.

“Yeah, but you don’t have this stuff on your back,” I growled.

Windy jumped down and headed for the back door. He helped me struggle to get up.

“Too late,” he said. “It’s in the bed.”

“Just get her out,” I snapped.

I cleaned myself up. We changed the sheets. The waterproof mattress cover saved us.

If you sleep with your furkids, you must have a waterproof mattress cover. This is the second time I have been grateful for one. Just like a child, sometimes a dog doesn’t know he is going to vomit until he does it.

Windy has had hemorrhagic gastroenteritis (HGE) twice, so I am wary of her vomiting, but this time it was just an unwelcomed wake-up call for my husband and me.

Max likes to relax with toys before bedtime.

Jake uses his laser beams to signal for a treat.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
