Throw up issues
2 Attachment(s)
Lately my girl (she 15 months old) has been throwing up a little more often than usual-- usually it is active vomiting where she will go somewhere and start heaving/hacking and then spit up something.

Today it looks different so I have attached pics. My vet said to bring her in tomorrow but has anyone seen this before?

Also, how frequently can a dog throw up for it to be considered normal?

She was on Orijen LBP until about a year old and now she is on Acana.Attachment 211545

that looks like blood flecks and not normal although perhaps if she is doing this quite frequently it is normal because of irritation
what i would think is her gut is quite irritated or her throat
either way blood flecks are not the end of the world but are a symptom of something else going on for sure

just because it is a high quality food does not mean it is the best one for your dog
i would consider switching and even possibly testing for epi and /or sibo

Vet time. That is blood.
Vomiting is never normal.

Thanks guys!

We went to the vet, ran some tests, $500 later she's fine, one some medicine, and a bland diet. No epi.

we went through this ...without the blood...but throwing up every 2 weeks almost like clockwork. I switched to Blue Buffalo lamb and rice and we've gone over 4 weeks now without puking. Just an idea to maybe try lamb and rice food?
