random vomiting
So Ziva usually eats dinner around 5 every night and it was the same tonight. I've been gradually switching over from Instinct to TOTW. Tonight was her first meal of strictly TOTW. She never eats kibble alone and I had read on here about adding pumpkin and some crumbled feta to the kibble. Well, I did that tonight and she ate every single bit. A rarity for us. Well, 11 o'clock rolls around, she had been in her crate for about an hour, and I hear her start to throw up. So I ran over to her cage and she had thrown practically her whole dinner up. 6 hours later! I have no idea where to even begin to assume what it was. Maybe the whole meal? Shes never thrown up before besides morning bile occasionally. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

roxy has randomly thrown up what appears to be whole meals of undigested kibble. It doesn't happen often so I haven't gotten too concerned about it. I think dogs can just get upset stomachs like humans do. I go easy on cheese..I know Roxy can't handle much of that.

Every dog I've had has done this before. Hours later I've been woken up to find a pile of undigested food for seemingly no reason. Happens only on rare occasion so it seems like just upset stomach. I wouldn't worry unless it keeps happening!

Also yeah be careful with cheese/dairy!!

Thank you! I swear i'm a hypochondriac when it come to her. I don't have any kids so SHES my kid and the slightest change behavior makes me a mad woman! lol! Her energy level and playfulness is that same as always even though she didnt eat this morning. I won't be doing cheese anymore. I think it's the TOTW that didn't agree with her so i'm taking it back today and going back to Merrick.

Both mine have random episodes of vomiting as well - sometimes kibble, sometimes yellow bile.

Warden will vomit the yellow foamy bile too if he's gone too long without eating (usually in the morning)

I'm the same as OP... Totally go crazy when anything out the ordinary happens!

Could be the feta. Mine can't handle any kind of milk products.
