Hello. How do I pay you?
My french bull dog is nearly 8 and has been healthy. In the past, he has thrown up occaissionaly after eating grass. Lately, however, he has been throwing up once per day, grass or no grass. Perhaps 4x in past 6 days.

Hi,My name is***** and I can help you this evening.Based on your history, it sounds like your pup has chronic vomiting and chronic mild intestinal upset. There are several different things that can cause this:-food allergy. This can develop over time even if you are feeding the same food over several years. I would recommend trying a hydrolyzed protein diet first and then reintroduce food items one at a time.-intestinal parasites- have you tried deworming him?-too much acid in his stomach- have you tried giving him Pepcid AC twice daily? The dose is 0.5mg per pound of body weight.-inflammatory bowel disease- this would have to be diagnosed by your veterinarian, usually with blood work and abdominal ultrasound.Does this help? What other questions do you have?Dr. Amanda
