Why Does My Dog Throw Up Daily After Drinking Water?

There are a number of reasons why your dog is throwing up after he has drunk water. The most obvious one is that he is drinking it too fast, which could make him take in too much air when he drinks, which will result in him throwing it back up.

If you think that drinking too fast is the reason, examine why this may be the case. If he does not have constant access to water he may be so thirsty he gulps the water too quickly, so this should be easily remedied. If he does have constant access but still drinks too quickly, you can slow him down by either giving him smaller amounts and giving him more water every time his bowl is empty, or alternatively, place a smaller bowl upside down in his drinking water; this will also slow him down.

You can also place something that floats in the water so that your dog has to drink round it. This will slow him down but make sure that whatever you place in the water is not small enough that he could take it into his mouth and perhaps choke on it.

If this does not work, perhaps you should give him mineral water instead of tap water; he may be sensitive to some of the chemicals that can be found in tap water.

Another thing to think about is the temperature of the water; if it is too cold, his gut could react and make him throw it back up.

There is also the chance that there is something medically wrong with your dog. Before you panic, it could be something that is easily remedied, so if any of the above doesn’t work take him to the vet to find out.

I think your dog drink water too fast. This can lead to vomiting. Dogs also tend to throw up when their stomach is full. SO give him water in less quantity after the meals. Moreover, if dog lowers his head/neck to a great extent for drinking water, this position can also cause vomiting. Temperature of the water also matters. Don't give him too hot or too cold water

Please take your dog to a vet, I read the answers here and thinking that it was it, left it untaken care of , and it got really really bad!! Last week, my dog almost died because I thought it was nothing according to the answers here.. turns out that it is VERY COMMON to have pancreatitis, a condition where their pancreas get inflammed and they get really painful, loose their energy, sleep, throw up water, and loose their food appetite. Sometimes it goes away for a short time like a week but comes back worse, and when it does, it can be extremely painful, my dog just spent a week in 5 different hospital and ER hospitals and it was in the upper thousands, so please save your pet, your time and your money and just take him or her to a vet as soon as you can. If I knew what I know now, things would have been a lot better for my dog and less costly. I cannot stress it enough, all of the vets I spoke with say its very common for dogs have pancreatitis all the time and they are extreme pain and it only gets worse so the issue should be fixed as soon as you see them throw up water, loose their appetite and become tired and lethargic.
God Bless!

I have the same problem with my dog.  So we took a smaller bowl and put it upside down in his regular water bowl.  It seems to help him from throwing up.  He is not able to drink the water as fast.

This could be caused by drinking too quickly.  You can use a smaller bowl, and have more than one watering station around the house.  Also try and limit exercise immediately after drinking.  There are other causes of vomiting including worms, infections, organ problems, metabolic disorders, obstructions or partial blockages, allergies or intolerances, pancreatitis or inflammatory bowel disease.  If the vomiting persists, worsens or your dog shows other signs of illness, you should contact your vet to investigate the problem.

He most likely is drinking to fast which is causing him to throw up. See if you slow him down when he is drinking and see if it stops him from throwing up.

Your dog is probably drinking too fast. Also he could be drinking too much on an empty stomach which could cause the vomiting.

The breed of this dog is required. A large breed often benefits by being fed where the food is about one foot above the floor. In addition quantity and speed are factors. Frequent but smaller amounts also would be beneficial.
