Customer Question

Hi my dog eats really fast then vomits his food. the food is undigested but it takes effort when he does it so I know it vomit not regurgitation
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: no not today. I did try him eating separately from my other dog so he wouldn't think its a race and got half can and soften the kibble up

Good Evening, This is Dr. Stevens, try placing a tennis ball in his bowl. It will slow his feeding down. You can also use a muffin\cupcake pan and place a little kibble in each hole. This will ensure he slows his feeding down. The act of vomiting is retching from the small intestines and stomach. Regurgitation is when they just open their mouth and the food comes up. You are very right to distinguish from them because each can have different causes.
