Vomiting problems

Recommended Posts

Hi

I need help! My greyhound belle is 8. She had some morning vomiting on empty stomach so I took her to the vet, they did an ultrasound, the barium test to see if she had an obstruction (she didnt) and bloodwork which dont show anything. I started feeding her right before bed and thought sverything was ok.

About a month later she started vomiting between breakfast and lunch 2 days in a row and redness around both eyes like an allergy. Back to the vet and they said they cant find anything wrong. They gave her fluids put her on bland diet for a few days  and said if she continues to go to a specialist

Anyone ever have issues like this?

We currently feed at 6, 2 and 10. She was on purina pro plan but the vet wants us to transition to digestive hills diet. 

No diarrhea no loss appetite poops are solid not mushy at all still wants to go on walks and play with her brother. Only difference is shes a clingy more, she will follow me room to room

Thanks!!

Dee

We've dealt with every tummy issue known over the years and they can be frustrating.  The Purina Pro Plan is normally a good food, but if there's an allergy or some other ingredient in it that her system doesn't like, it may be time for a change.  If you vet did any blood work, post the results here and there are a few people who might be able to make suggestions.  One of our dogs had stress colitis that appeared for no rhyme or reason at odd times, and that necessitated a food change every few months. 

Assuming that the problem isn't chicken, we always kept a case of Evanger's Organic Cooked Chicken canned food on hand.  The dogs with tummy issues would eat that when they had squealing or upset tummies, and it usually put enough food in them to settle things out so they would eat breakfast a few hours later.  You can also use that as part of bland diet combined with rice, scrambled eggs etc, but it is not a complete meal in the can.  It is strictly bland, cooked chicken and nothing else, so not a food to switch to long term. 

Sometimes it does take a gastro vet specialist to figure out these tummy things.  Also, what are you feeding as treats or chews?  Some of those things will really throw a wrench in the tummy.

All of the above, and adding that one of mine was vomiting and now gets 10mg Famotidine before breakfast and dinner. It has helped tremendously, no more episodes. Good luck!

I would try the prescription diet (Easy to digest, low fat) and start famotidine or Prilosec.

Is she vomiting undigested food or yellow bile liquid? 

Does her stomach made loud sounds around the time she vomits?  Is she trying to eat non-food items or a lot of grass?

Did your vet suggest trying fasting and a bland diet for any period of time and did you do that? 

Which flavor Pro Plan are you feeding have you tried the Sensitive Stomach formula?

When they did the ultrasound did they look over the whole digestive tract or just one portion of it?  Did they look at any of the organs for abnormalities?

Unexplained vomiting is tough and can take a specialist to properly diagnose.  You might research of you have a good specialty hospital or clinic with a good gastroenterologist practising there.

My greyhound had three episodes of yellowish bile vomit.  I took him to a vet who ran tests and he has pancreatitis.  He was given an antiemetic and low-dose prednisone.  Hope it all works.
