My dog opened the fridge for the first time last night and stole a lump of cheddar. I would say he had about half of a 250 gr. piece. About an hour later he vomited that and his previous meal. He has not been able to keep anything down today and he is due at the vets for castration first thing tomorrow morning.

Is it normal to still be vomiting 24 hours after stealing the cheese and getting rid of it? I am inclined to put off the op. as he certainly will not be at his best after the last 24 hours and am not quite sure why he has not recovered by now. A friend mentioned he could be allergic to cheese but I have been using cubed cheese as training treats for a couple of weeks with no ill effects?

What do you think and has anybody had the same happen?

No diarrhoea so far. I have just fed him some steamed chicken with rice as per emergency vet advice to see whether he will be sick again or not. If it stays down, they will probably operate after checking him, if it does not we will need to find out what is going on. He is well and bright otherwise and nearly drove me crazy while he was waiting for the chicken to be cooked, so hopefully he has not got anything too wrong with him. There have been no cases of seasonal canine illness around here, but you never know. Thank you for your replies.

Dont know what caused the sickness but I would definitely cancel the op until its cleared up. If its only a routine op waiting another week wouldnt hurt. I wouldnt fancy having my ba**s off with a sickness bug!!
