Default Throwing up really brown liquid (really gross)

Gypsy just vomited four times some really gross brown liquid, actually a lot of it. I think she threw up her entire stomach contents. I know that dogs throw up sometimes and its nothing to worry about but ive never seen her vomit anything like this before. She hasnt eaten anything unusual (that i know of) just her normal food and thats never caused any problems before. This also smelt really bad (not that it usually smells nice) but it was like she vomited up diahorrea. My question is should i take her to the vet? Or is the vet just going to be like oh well dogs throw up sometimes and i took her for nothing. I know its better to be sure so i just wanted your opinion. Other than that she is fine acting normal maybe a little quiet.

Edited to add: She just threw up some thick foamy looking stuff twice now.

Maybe she just got ahold of something really gross. I would try giving her some cut up chicken and some boiled rice for 12 hours and see if that helps. If she is still throwing up after that I would definetly get her to the vet. These little dogs can become dehydrated very fast.

I would definatly take her to the vet.
Normal food vomit and yellow stomach bile can be dangerous if it goes on too long, but if it's brown and smells different there could be something wrong.
Please take her to the vet and let us know what he/she says.

I agree. I think you should probably take her to the vet just in case. Definitely take her if this vomitting persists. Please keep us posted. Hope your baby feels better soon!

i say if does not look like the dog food you should definitely take her to the vet.oh if she has digestion problems try feeding her by hand so she can slow down on her eating as well add some probiotics they help great i had to use them with Pearl and she is doing great.

My first thought is it MIGHT be cat poop (if it smelled that bad). I hope there wasn't any really dark (black) vomit, because that could be blood. I would definitely call the vet and probably take her in.

Tell us how it turns out. Poor little thing.
