Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi Micah, I'm sorry to hear that your girl hasn't felt well today.
The biggest indicator that something is seriously wrong is if her vomiting persists. The fact that she vomited her food today may well have been because of her eating quickly or gulping air while she eats. This is not uncommon. If she doesn't go back to her normal eating schedule tomorrow, I would contact your vet's office. You should be able to take her in for an exam even if Trupanion hasn't reached out to you regarding her case. If you've already paid for the service, her visit may well be covered if she hasn't dealt with vomiting in the past. Other concerning signs to watch out for would be diarrhea, seizures, non-responsive nature while she's sleeping, etc.This evening, I'd leave the water down and allow her access as long as she doesn't drink large volumes at a time.If she continues to eat her food quickly (if, in your opinion, it's too quickly), you can feed her raw diet chilled or partially frozen. I also feed raw and occasionally have the dog who insists on wolfing their food down. To prevent this, I will feed these individuals (who also have teeth, mind you) frozen raw or I will place their ground raw into a bowl, add water, freeze it and give them the bowl so that they have to wait for it to thaw some before they are able to eat it. It's helped greatly in those dogs who have vomited their meal after eating so quickly.If my answer has helped you, please rate me. If you have other questions, just respond and I'll help you further.
I would definitely contact your vet's office tomorrow morning. The persistence of her symptoms are concerning. They may wish to run some labwork on her. With her age, it wouldn't be a bad idea.
