Why does my dog faint before throwing up?

When my dog starts to get ready to puke he will sometimes collapse like he either fainted or is about to. His breed is a Min Pin mixed with Chihuahua. Afterward he’s fine and gos about his normal routine. Should I worry about this?

    Yes, Dogs do not faint. If your dog is doing this it may have a serious heart porblem. Vet check now.

    You shouldn’t worry… You should start panicking!

    Dogs do not normally faint. You need to get him to the vets as soon as possible. Do not wait or think that we just say “Go to the vets” for the hell of it. Your dog could be seriously ill.

    my neighbors wife started doing that and now he has to pay child support for the next 18 years.

    Heart, seizure, lack of Oxygen, throat obstruction…there are many reasons the dog may be losing consciousness.

    Dogs, like people, throw up if they’ve eaten something not good for them, or too much too fast. (Dogs almost never get drunk and barf.)
    But if dog vomits from being only in house (not eating dead bird or hazardous spill) and eating just regular dog food, this is not normal and should be checked out by vet.

    Its his windpipe.

    I have a Min Pin too and that breed as a very tiny windpipe. In fact mine does “hacking up a hairball” sound regular a couple times a day. Scared the crap out of me the first time but my vet said its normal for this breed.

    Warning signs for serious problems is if this breed gets so exciting it has a hard time breathing. Usually its a reverse sneeze, but if the wind pipe is damaged, the dog can actually cut off air to itself.

    Go see the vet, Bring a checkbook. It’s an expensive problem to find and fix.
