Vomiting, I think I need advise
Hi all, I have a 11 month old GS pup. I notice this morning after her breakfast her tummy did a little hick-up. She didn't make a hick-up sound but the gesture. I thought she might throw up but after 2 hick-ups, it stopped and she was back to normal. Then for dinner, she powered through her dinner and just as I gave her a piece of her usual liver treat, her body does the hick up gesture and she gets a preoccupied look on her face and walks away. Bends over, hick-up, and a portion of her dinner comes out. She walks away from the first post dinner goods and hick-ups, this time a little bit more comes out. Then she walks between the two post dinner piles, sniffs, and actually eats the first pile as I'm cleaning the second larger pile! Oh, and the piles just look like undigested kibbles. Quite clean looking and it looks like just a thin coat of mucus. (Easy to pick up and clean)
By the time I finish cleaning the second pile she already ate the other pile:( And her stomach actually doesn't reject it this time. If there was a hick-up after eating that pile I missed it or there wasn't one and everything went down ok. I don't know. She seemed totally fine right after eating that first pile. She even came back to the stop where she delivered the second larger pile and stiffed around, looking for left-overs! I had her come over to me and hand fed her 3 kibbles at a time to see if she would want to eat at all and if anymore of the hick-up continued. She ate the kibble and no hick-ups, but she seemed a little tired from the episode and immediately laid down.
I'm currently feeding her a mix of each: majority Natural Balance Lamb LID kibble, NB Liver wet (1-2 spoons), Nature's Variety Raw beef (2 medallions), Honest Kitchen "Love-beef" (1 spoon), and Purina Fortiflora. I feed her twice a day, in that slow feeder bowl. She's been on this diet for 2+ months now. This is the first time I've seen this happen to her.
I'm calling my vet in the morning. Any advise, comments, suggestions would be helpful. :confused: Thanks everyone!
