OLIVER AT TIMES THROWS UP BILE. WE USED TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM EARLIER BUT WE WERE TOLD HE WAS HUNGRY. NOW HE THROWS UP IN THE A.M. AND IN THE AFTERNOON.HIS ANAL SACKE ARE HAVING TO BE DRAINED EVERY FEW WEEKS. LOVE THIS BULLIE AND I'M WORRIED.
My rescue Lola came to me as I quickly found out prone to vomiting bile first thing in the morning or if she goes more than 5 hours without a meal...I feed her 6 (yes) small meals a day including her "snack" at night and finally had to resort to giving her OTC Pepcid 10mg. prior to bed per my vets suggestion. She's a teeny little thing...it has worked like a charm and he said she could be on it "forever" without any harm. He said a lower fat meal was best for her esp. at night...hope this helps...that BILE can be a killer on your carpet to get out not to mention the vagal response that can happen when they wretch "too long"
we gave him smaller portions throughout the day, and some boiled hamburger at night. We are also on ProPlan Sensitive Skin and Stomach with no problems now. Rocky didn't ease up on the vomiting bile until he was about a year old. How old is your bully? Some dogs do need their anal sacs expressed more often, I have friend who gets her bully's done every month. I would definitely consider switching foods, or giving smaller, but more meals throughout the day, but I don't know if the bile is related to the anal sac problem. I get Rocky's done every 3-6 months.
Mimi threw up all the time until I switched her to Pro plan for sensitive skin and stomachLife is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.
Nelson his 3 cups of food, in smaller portions throughout the day and have added brown rice. It seems to help the throwing up. At night before bed he gets just rice and also keeps him without throw up till morning. Good luck.
