vomitting aussie

Post by Bob Yos » Thu, 23 Dec 1999 04:00:00



I have an 18 month old Australian Shepherd.  Every couple of
weeks he
throws up.  It usually occurs long after he has eaten, quite
often in
the morning when he hasn't eaten for 6+ hours.  Not to sound too
disgusting, but the vomit is purely yellow liquid and is acid
from his
stomach.  (I have been told that bile is a green color).  Before
and
after vomitting, his behavior is fine.  He has no trouble eating,
drinking or playing.

Any ideas what is making him throw up?  He doesn't eat much
grass.  His
diet is strictly Iams chunks.   I rarely give him rawhide bones.
The
only other thing he eats is maybe one or two strips of Bacon
Begging
Treats.  I am not terribly worried about his health but I am
anxious to
keep him from doing this -- it makes a terrible mess.

TIA

Your Aussie's about the same age as mine.

Yellow is a good colour.  Typically, when a dog vomits with an
empty stomach, the bile will be yellow.  Try saving a small
portion of his dinner and feed it to him just before bedtime.  
Of course, to be safe, see your vet.

You mean that you haven't trained your dog to puke on linoleum?  
Just kidding, but my 10 year old female *always* uses the
kitchen or bathroom to throw up.

You may want to divide his food up into smaller more frequent portions
sounds like he just has an empty stomach that gets upset. Our dogs will do
this at times when we are travelling and they refuse food for awhile. Hope
this helps.
