Default Vomiting after eating.

Hi, for the last three days max has been vomiting after his food. It's not after every meal. The first time I was out and my o.h said he was sick straight after his afternoon feed, but the ate it straight back up!!! 8O Then yesterday he vomited just a small amount after his afternoon feed, but was fine the rest of the day and ate his evenin meal ok. Then just now after his breakfast he vomited it all back up and before I could grab him ate it!! 8O Then started to retch again but not been sick anymore. Could this be duo to him eating to fast? Although he always has and has never been sick before. I've read about blockages and it's got me a bit worried!! But then it's not after every meal and he is going to the toilet normally and is acting his usual self.

Hi,

sorry to hear Max is unwell. I think you should give the vets a call if he's been doing it for three days, just to get him checked out and make sure there's nothing to worry about. Indy has had the same symptoms over the weekend but his was due to some medication he was on that upset his stomach. I switched him from his dry food to a tin of Chappie (the words easily digestible caught my eye when I was shopping) and gave him little and often, instead of his usual two meals.

Could Max have eaten something that might have upset his stomach on a walk? When Indy was young he was sick a couple of times from eating fox poo.

Anyway, try not to worry too much as he's acting normal, but I would get him checked over if you can. x

We have a similar problem with Bruno, who always eats as if it is his last meal.

What has helped him is if I feed 1 third of his meal at a time, ie, I am trying to get him to wait, then put down 1st small portion, then the next and another wait and last portion, it seem to work as he is not enhaling his food all in one go.

It may not be your problem if Max is 'nt eating so fast that he is just bringing it all back though, but if he is eating to fast it may be worth a try.

I would give the vet a ring if you are concerned that it may be bloat, but does not sound like it.

Good luck, hope he is ok soon.

June

I wonder if he is bolting his food too quickly? That sometimes makes it bounce. Try putting some water in his food to slow him up a little and see if that helps.

Thanks for the replies, don't think it would be bloat as it's not every meal he's bringing up. He's not eaten anything strange on walks either so think it could more than likely be he's eating too fast. Just seemed strange that's he's only being sick now when he's always bolted his food. I will try and portion the food out and see if that helps and if he keeps being sick I will give the vet a ring or call in(there only at the end of my street) he's happy and playing as normal and it doesn't seem to hurt him if I touch his stomach. So fingers crossed slowing him down with his food will put a stop to it.

Try giving him his food on a baking tray or there are bowls called brake fast bowls that have lumps in them that makes it harder for them to wolf the food down!

When Mins was briefly fed on some dried food some time ago, she used to eat it really quickly too. I put something in the bowl (think I used one of our big galileo bones as it was heavy and to hand) so that she had to eat around it.

Since my last post I have given max his food either in his treat ball or as June suggested and split it and give a third at a time and he hasn't vomited since breakfast on Tuesday. But then he has today it wasnt after his meals as before. He was fed breakfast at eight and was sick about half an hr ago so about three hrs after his meal. He brought back up all his breakfast. I can't understand what the problem could be so am going to give the vets a ring. The only prob is if they want me to take him in to be checked over. I don't get paid till mon and don't have any way of paying till then. Do you think it's something that can wait as he's ok otherwise??

How reasonable are the Vets? Ours you can run up a bill before having to pay - they also wait for 'on insurance' so you don't have to pay straight away, don't even pay the excess until they've got the claim back which is good, our old Vets didn't but its worth asking (ring and ask if you can't bear face to face).

They have a pay when you receive treatment policy. I have phoned them and asked there advice and they said to starve him today and then feed rice and chicken( no good as he doesn't tolerate rice well so would be mash and chicken) not sure why they said that though. Thought that was just for runny bums!! :? Don't see how feeding him that would stop any sickness but will see. They said if it keeps happening then take him in mon or if it gets any worse then get him in before then.
