Guest montyb Posted February 23, 2016 Share Posted February 23, 2016 Hi everyone, First post here, but we've had our Monty for about 10 months now, and he's been the best dog anyone could ask for! But for the last 2 months or so, he's been having a very grumbly tummy some mornings (this doesn't happen every day, maybe once a week) and throws up some yellow bile around 6-7am before I get up (I get up and feed him at 7:30 am). Occasionally there is a small amount of yellow stomach mucus. When this happens, he refuses to eat or drink, which is very odd because this boy loves his food! I have been giving him a famotidine pill, and he is generally ready to eat a bit later around 10-11am. To try and counteract this he's been getting 1/2 of his daily food (a total of 3.75cups) just before bed around 10pm, in addition to the milkbone he has always gotten. Before anyone asks, I took a sample in earlier this month and there are no signs of parasites (his previous 3 fecals have been negative, though I know sometimes that means very little!) He's been on Acana Ranchlands for about 3-4 months, which has been great otherwise (lots of energy, healthy coat, ok poos), but I am wondering if maybe because it doesn't have as many "fillers" its just going through his system too fast? He was on Iams minichunks before we made the switch to Acana, and he didn't do this as often (maybe once a month), but his poos were very bad. If it has anything to do with anything, sometimes when I let him outside after a throw-up he immediately has a poop. Like he really had to go. Could that be upsetting his tummy? His last out is around 10-10:30pm. Other mornings he just goes out and has a pee first thing, no poop until our walk later. Maybe I just need to stay up a bit later so he gets his bedtime snack later? Any ideas? Thanks for any suggestions! Hmm, ironically there was a post about this sort of problem just a few down the list. That will teach me not to read! Anyway, if anyone has any other insights please let me know oh its not 1/2 his food before bed! Just 1/2 a cup! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
