Sunday's "Living With Your Pet" Tips: The Scoop On Pet Vomit

   Fabulous photo of me by John Clark of Clark Creative

How's that for an enticing title? While we don't want to gross you out on this steamy Sunday, we thought this article by Dr Karen Becker, one of our favorite holistic veterinarians, was well worth reading. For us, it falls into the "we had no clue" category, and since we pets tend to expel stuff from our mouths (most often without much warning), it would certainly be helpful for those who love and care for us to know the differences among the different types of, well, stuff that comes out of our mouths. It turns out that it's not all "vomit".

Until she read Dr. Becker's discussion, Parental Unit didn't know that the types of "stuff" coming out of our mouths is divided into three, very different categories: vomit, regurgitation, or expectoration. And it's important to know the difference, so you humans can decide whether we need to be examined by a vet, and even what to tell said vet about the "event".  Based on this information, Parental Unit has concluded that I'm apparently regurgitating a bit of water and mucus fairly regularly, but only after I arrive home from a walk and drink water right away-Parental Unit will ask my doc about this during our annual visit scheduled for this week, and we'll let you know what he says.

We'd love to hear from you about this delightful issue...did you know the difference among these three types of "stuff" (for lack of a better word)? Let us know!
