Our question this week was:

Hi Dr. Debra – that's for your column – it is great. I have a question. My dog can eat anything most of the time and is very healthy. However, my dog always vomits after he eats one particular treat – what should I do?

Sarah Parker – New Jersey


Hi Sarah– thanks for your email. I have to write this...I can't help myself. Have you ever heard about the guy that went to the doctor and said – "Doc, If I press right here it hurts". "But it only hurts if I press on it". "What should I do?" And the doctor says, "Stop pressing on it".

Well.....If you dog is otherwise healthy and only vomits after he eats one particular treat – I'd not feed it.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
