I was researching why my boy, 100lb half Newfoundland and

Hi! I was researching why my boy, 100lb half Newfoundland and half Queensland Heeler may be throwing up. He eats a mix of good kibble and cooked, diced, chicken. I give him a few scraps of what I eat but very little. He had vomiting episodes a few weeks ago and I took him into my vet. Full blood tests and he's really healthy. I came home to his entire breakfast on the floor and 5 other piles of bile. While cleaning, he vomited 3 more times. The last little bit had a bit of reddish gel like pieces in it, nothing man made and I can't tell if it's blood.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: No! Just his regular breakfast. Aside from a bit of tennis ball fuzz, he can't digest any of his toys.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Jameson, 2yoJA: How old is Jameson?Customer: Two yearsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jameson?Customer: Naw, completely healthy otherwise

I rescued a 7 year old Miniature Schnauzer 7 weeks ago and

Hello, I rescued a 7 year old Miniature Schnauzer 7 weeks ago and she has been fantastic. In great health, fantastic teeth, very active and fit. I feed her Honest Kitchen Dehydrated food - 1/2 cup with warm water and a tsp of coconut oil and scoop of E3 Live for dinner and for breakfast 1/2 cup Orijen Senior dog food. She also usually gets a Terrabone dental chew and some low-cal treats during the day. Yesterday I fed her her breakfast, she came over and sniffed it, then walked away - she usually takes it down immediately. So I took her for a walk, she came home and ate it. Dinner came around and same thing, eventually ate after our walk. Today was a repeat of yesterday except she didn't get the a.m. walk, but eventually ate the food. I took her out for a long off leash game of fetch this afternoon (it was pretty hot) where she got some reward treats (took those down no problem). She came home and regurgitated a good amount of food. Dinner came around and it been in her bowl for 2 hours and she's only eaten half, again she normally eats it all immediately. She didn't regurgitate any food after dinner. Otherwise, she seems totally herself, follows me everywhere, excited for walks and play time and has pooped twice today (very normal poops). My thought, which I started tonight at dinner is to only feed her the dehydrated food with no coconut oil or E3 Live for both dinner and breakfast to see if maybe there is an issue with giving her two different types of food or the supplements. Curious on your thoughts. She's been on this split diet for about 2 weeks and no issues until just yesterday. Prior to this she was getting just the Orijen Kibble.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the miniature schnauzer?Customer: Not that I can think of. I know they are prone to pancreatitis, but she has no other symptoms besides the lack of appetite. And not sure if the regurgitation was just from over extending her play in the heat.

My dog ate some spilled flour on the floor. At first i unfortunately didn't know any better and thought maybe she had a cold. I got an antibiotic for her. I didn't know anything about wtetching vut just figured it out now. She is not doing the wretching except for a few seconds a few times a day. Will she be ok? Oh dear... It happened on Thursday and i thought she had a cold on friday so my vet gave me an rx for her. She wasn't seen at the vets ofc. I was trying to save money due to my recent scoliosis dx on myself. She is sleeping now and i havea vaporizer on her now too.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Jessilynn and she is 8 yrs old. Otherwise healthy and great muscle tone. She is a shih tzu. We walk an hour a day and i love her dearly. I made a terrible mistake and didnt think anything horrible when it happened because she has had a fourth piece of toast here and there. She ate perhaps a half a tsp of it fJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jessilynn?Customer: Fyi
