Throwing up for your yorkie is never something that should be ignored. However, this doesn’t mean that you panic every time they have some spit-up going on. Sometimes it is something simple like motion sickness or the little excited pooches eating too much or too fast which is a common problem with the breed.
However, there are times where immediate and serious action needs to be taken for the sake of your yorkie’s wellbeing if they have been vomiting a lot. These scenarios include:
If your yorkie throwing up and shaking
This is usually a sign of serious problems the most important being a consequence of losing too much fluid and electrolytes. If not handled immediately, the continued and uncompensated losses could lead to serious and even fatal results. So, what to do if your yorkie is throwing up and shaking? Get your yorkie to a vet right away.
When you start to see blood
This is never a good sign and could point to anything from severe gastritis to parvovirus infection. None of these problems are the wait-it-out type so you need to get your doggy immediate medical attention before they lose too much blood.
If nothing you do seems to stop it
You have tried everything from training them to stop eating random stuff to switching out their dog food and nothing is working. In this case, you may be dealing with more serious and lasting issues that need professional attention.
When it is accompanied by other signs and symptoms
Vomiting from simple issues like overeating are often not accompanied by other signs. However, if in addition to vomiting your yorkie is presenting with several other systems, you need to get concerned and do something about it as soon as possible. These include fever, shaking, diarrhea, excessing whining or howling and many others.
