Ageizm Thanks guys/gals....I only had it happen once and since then like others here I've employed a no play time after eating. I have also started soaking the food.

The routine now a days is prep his meal, then while his meal soaks we go for a good walk/run ( bout 15-20 mins) so he's good a tuckered out, then feed him and watch him plop afterwards. He's doing really well with this regimen. =)

Who knew this would be such a learning experience? (which I'm thoroughly enjoying thankfully)

I've always had cats and have been spoiled by their easy maintenance. =P

If he threw up because he ate too fast or it was too much for him to digest all at once, I don't see the harm in him eating it, but not if he's sick.
Which is hard to tell when they do want to eat it as sometimes they are sick.
Also give more small meals instead of two large ones, and sometimes soaking the food so it's already swelled as much as it's going to helps. You have to soak for a good 20 min. in warm water for that to occur.

I wouldn't. If a dog's stomach is upset enough to reject food, it's pointless (and possibly harmful) to put more food into it right away. If my dog throws up after dinner, I wait until the next morning to feed again.

katieliz oh yeah, scarlettsmom, i'm with you and very proud of my "un-fun mom" title.

Scarlettsmom WE are super uptight about the "NO RUNNING AROUND AFTER EATING" rule in our house. We hold fast to the 30-60 minute plan. I think GSD's are more prone to hurling and worse when they have full stomachs and zorch around.

Scarlett now knows to go relax after eating. It took some time, but she's very good about it now.

We went from Blue Buffalo to Royal Canin and back. Scarlett's poops could win contests for perfection. Only dog owners can appreciate a poop contest, eh? :0)

Sounds like you have to be more uptight...fun spoiler and all. Anything we can do to reduce the chance of bloat or torsion is worth it, even if it makes us the most un-fun dog parents of all.

I am proud of that title.

As long as the dog is otherwise acting fine, I would. I'd probably wait and watch for a bit before trying again. (And as you did, I would start with a reduced amount)

MattLink Foods can cause a little vomiting for several reasons. Some that I know of are; gobbling up too much and too quickly to digest, which is normal for carnivores. The food might be too rich for the pup, or the change from one brand of food to another might have been too quick.
If I didn't think it was one of these things, I'd probably ask my vet.

I don't think that I have ever refed one after they have been sick, hopefully someone more knowledgeable will answer this for you.

She also threw up in the car yesterday while we were driving after she ate some grass, which is normal as far as I know.. About 2 days ago I found 2 throw up strains on the carpet, it seems like she throws up and then eats it, I obviousely didn't let her eat it when I saw it today. She is healthy weight and playful and full of energy, she is acting like nothing is bothering her, right after she threw up today she went to eat her normal food like no big deal and back to playing....Should I be worried, did anyone else have this kind of experience?
I would try keeping her calmer after she has eaten and see if she stops or continues to throw up. I make mine chill for an 1 1/2 to 2 hours after eating, mostly because I am so afraid of bloat.
