What should I do if my dog is puking blood?

He hasn't eaten anything bad that I know of.

I hope my answer is not too late. If your dog is vomiting blood, the IMMEDIATE and SENSIBLE response is to go to the vet NOW. Just like a human, this is a BAD sign. I REALLY hope if you were puking blood someone would take you to the emergency room. The same rule applies to your dog.

Begin with withholding all food-- but, not water. (Until you can get in to the vet.) This may be a simple sensitivity to something in diet or an exposure to water-born bacteria in a pond with water birds. Vomiting blood is a symptom of many things-- But, many are serious.

A dog puking blood may indicate a severe condition. Call the vet immediately. The dog may be bleeding from somewhere internally. This may be caused by ingesting a foreign object, a tumor, or a severe stomach upset. Vomiting blood is called hematemesis, and require almost immediate attention, especially if the blood is black or dark color.
