Dog Dry Heaving: 5 Possible Causes & 2 Ways You Can Help

If you have noticed dry heaving in your dog, first, pay attention to the way your dog eats.

Dog Struggling With Parasites

Some other types of parasites can seriously damage a dog’s internal organs, like heartworms.

GDV (Gastric Dilatation Volvulus)

Gastric Dilatation Volvulus, or bloat, is a very serious health condition and its one symptom in dogs is dry heaving.

Laryngeal Paralysis

This condition means that there has been an airway obstruction in your dog’s larynx. It usually occurs in older dogs.

Introduce several smaller meals a day to him, and do not allow your dog to eat only one large meal a day.
