3 year old Australian Shepherd is having trouble holding down

Customer Question

3 year old Australian Shepherd is having trouble holding down her food. Appetite is fine but anything more than 1/4 cup comes right back up. No sigh of pain when pressing on her stomach. Her diet has been 3/4 cup of Beneful (salmon) 3 times a day with no problems until now. Stool looks good & she is still very active, showing no signs of being sick. Weight approximately 55 lb.
