I have a question about..vomiting
Posted By tdomf_d6e07 On November 15, 2013 @ 8:45 PM In Ask the Vet,Diet and Nutrition | 1 Comment
I have a 12 year old shitz-u who has been vomiting since she was a puppy. I have been very careful with not changing food and she gets no table food. I have consulted my vet and the only thing he has tried is an ant acid which only helps once in a while. I have tried grain free treats as I think the treats are the culprit I break them all Into tiny pieces because to many means puking the next day. Since the past year she seems to be puking even more. Not sure what else to try and I haven’t changed to senior diet because I don’t want to upset her stomache. Any suggestions.
Answer from Dr. Gaylord Brown:
It is possible she has a motility disorder, food allergy, or a gastric sphincter problem. A motility study to determine stomach emptying time would be valuable information; as would allergy testing. Motility problems can be helped with drugs, the gastric sphincter can be loosened with surgery, and food allergies can be treated by diet. You need a proper diagnosis!
