    I remember one of the first times we took Stiggy for a walk this happened. We contributed it to him eating too much grass ... or maybe there was pesticide in the grass, don't know. But he threw up a bit then fainted for a second. We poured water on him to keep him cool and he got up soon after.

    Poor baby. When Stella was choking she passed out right afterwards and even after the food was dislodged it took her a minute to come around. I would have to agree with what everybody else is saying. I'm sure that's a frightening thing to go thorough

    @Chumley

    Orion did do this. She was trying to vomit and her tummy was rolling and rolling and rolling. During this time, she wasn't getting any oxygen. When she finally did vomit, she passed out. She hit the floor and came right to. As soon as she was able to get some air she was just fine. Now when her tummy starts the "rolling" I make sure I have my arms under her belly in case she passes out again.
    My mom told me I did something like this all the time as a child. I'd start crying and hold my breath. I'd hold it so long I'd pass out. As soon as I passed out, I'd start breathing again. But I'd just be pissed off all over again. I was young....under 3.

    Loki has gotten really close to passing out while vommitting. I have thankfully been able to make him finally gag by stick my hand down his throat. First time I did it was to make sure that he wasn't choking the next time I did it because it worked and stopped it the first time. The vet did put him on a low dose of steroids to help keep his airway open. The cause of his vommitting was phlegm from his allergies. That is so scary to see or hear for that matter. I hope that your friends baby is OK. !

    I just took my boxer to the vets yesterday because she was vomiting phlegm from allergies... he put her on Temaril-P, and after 2 doses she seems to be doing better already!!! Hope Loki is doing okay

I was hoping someone on the forum had some advice? she seems pretty sure it wasn't a seizure. I feel terrible because she lost her last bully to a sudden seizure at 3 yrs of age.
    Any update?

    Lemon juice helps to cut the phlegm, I would add some to her water or if she was real bad I would just squirt it right down her throat. This only went on for two months then we figured out it was a food allergy.

    Some will do this, as Cheryl has said, they don't get enough oxygen when they are getting ready to vomit. Buddy used to do this when he was younger and Diva did it a few months age. As soon as they start breathing again, they come to.
