My dog was having stomach problems; gas, weight loss, eating grass and vomiting. After about a week, we had blood tests and a complete exam with the vet, who could not say what was wrong. No parasites or worms, no organ problems. At wit's end, I thought about probiotics and yogurt helping people's stomachs. I checked, and yogurt is safe to feed dogs. My dog eats at least 4 tablespoons of yogurt per day and has not had any more problems; even his weight is back to normal. It is his favorite "treat" and my other dogs get it every day too!

Yogurt: for dogs.... i just wanted to know what kind of yogurt... are you refering to normal supermarket yogurt, which humans eat?. or is it a different yogurt. i just want to know what kind of yogurt for dogs that vomit?

I use PLAIN YOGART. My vet recommended it and the stomach noises have gone away and no more loose stools. My yorkie has colitis and it is gone. I give him 1 teaspoon in the morning.

My yorkie was having frequent episodes of spitting up. The vet didn't find anything wrong and found him in good health. He suggested a teaspoon of yogurt in the morning and evening. I use plain yorgurt I get at our grocery store. It was amazing the change. Couldn't believe the difference. My pooch rarely spits up anymore. I'm a nurse and we occasionally use active cultures like those found in yogurt for our patients with stomach ailments. I now see that it can also work on my dog.... I would stay away from flavored yogurt because I don't think the dogs need the extra sugar or artificial sweeteners.

You can definitely buy yogurt for your dogs at the grocery store. Just make sure it says that it contains live cultures. Some companies pasteurize the yogurt after making it. (Why?! ) My opinion is that the more cultures that are in the yogurt, the better.

My little miniture American Eskimo vomits pale yellow foamy stuff and it doesn't seem to have a thing to do with what she eats or when she eats. She doesn't seem to be sick and BM's are normal, and only throws up occasionally. She seems to be able to eat anything I give her - oranges, pickles, beets - all kinds of stuff without a problem. However, I've noticed when it falls on the floor she normally won't touch it.

My son and I live in a duplex. I'm on one side and he and a friend that used to work as CNA in nursing homes live on the other with a covered porch adjoining the entrances.

I spend a lot of time on my son's side. We generally eat meals together and my computer is on his side. His friend cleans the floors with Pine-Sol. I have asthma and can't tolerate the smell and have to wait until everything is dry and the smell clears out. Three mornings ago he mopped the floor and we went over late and I didn't smell it and didn't know it. She threw up but friend didn't see it. Next morning she threw up within 20 min. And he flipped and said he just mopped that floor the day before. That got me to thinking about PineSol. This morning she threw up again within 20 minutes.

I also have a border collie mix that seems to be rather letharic on my son's side. When I go to my side they play like crazy, but he doesn't pee as much as normal. I'm more concerned about him than the little girl.

The only difference between the two sides of duplex, is my side isn't as "antiseptic". Nobody has a contagious disease and I can't stand the smell and only use plain water or vinegar to mop.

Anybody had a problem with dogs and use of Pine-Sol or Lysol? I searched the internet and found it can cause liver and kidney damage of they eat food off the floor that has the residue left, and throats can get inflamed just from inhaling it. Border Collie licks his paws all the time so I know he has to be picking it up.

Other than the Pine-Sol, I'm at a loss as to what could be going on.

Pine Sol is extremely toxic and should not be used. I would not use it with dogs and children in the house. White vinegar, mixed with a little Dawn dish detergent and baking soda is safe and effective cleaner - cheap and non toxic.

Judy from Denver/ Pine Sol. If your son likes 'clean' have him use vineger and water to clean, not just floors but everything. It is not toxic, and by the time it dries there is no smell and everything shines like it is brand new. There is a book, Over 100 Helpful household hints (heinz distilled white vinegar), cost about $2-3. you can use other types of vinegar, but vinegar was used long before bleach and other health endangering products that people buy today.
