The owners were concerned that the 1-year-old male neutered cavapoo vomited out blood this morning but had started vomiting yesterday.
No abdominal pain or foreign body. The throat was painful, probably due to vomiting.
X-rays did not show any abnormality or foreign body in the throat or stomach. Only painful throat but no abdominal pain on my palpation (video).
On further discussion with the two ladies, the dog did bite a hard toy to pieces. He probably tried to swallow the pieces, injuring his throat. He vomited many times, including blood-tinged vomit this morning.
Blood test done.
Conclusion. The dog vomited lots of water during the IV drip and baytril and spasmogesic injections. The cause of vomiting could be the hard toy pieces that the owners saw the dog chewing and swallowing. These are non-fabric toys for dogs to play.
