Customer Question
Hi we rescued a...

Hi we rescued a 3 year old Boston with one eye from an abusive puppy mill. Since we've had him he throws up everything he eats even if I hand feed him. It's like he doesn't chew it he just swallows it do fast and throws up balls of foam and I can't get him to stop.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the puppy will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Bug. We've had him since November. He throws up several times daily

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?

He sounds kind of phlegmy all the time

It doesn't matter what he eats. I've tried mixing soft food into his hard food and even just giving him soft food. It seems like he eats so fast or either already has a lot of mucus that he throws anything he eats up. Sometimes he throws up after chewing on a toy (no pieces came of I checked) so maybe he's swallowing a lot of air when he's chewing on the toy? He's not losing weight in fact since we got him in November he had lived his whole life in a kennel outdoor so he was underweight bones showing and now he's a healthy (almost chunky) little guy. I bought a slow feeder bowl but he dumped that over in 2 seconds he's pretty smart. He snores really loudly and all the time even when awake which I've never seen before. I just hate seeing him throw up so much and him sounding phlegmy all the time makes me wonder too. He has boundless energy and plays all day. I have an 9 year old Boston that hardly ever throws up but she has done it when she's been excited about a new treat she really liked and got carried away or drank water too fast or ate too fast. He deserves to be healthy. When I got him neutered in December the vet couldn't find anything wrong so I just didn't know what else to try.

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Bug has been vomiting so much. All the signs you describe makes me suspicious that he's got a condition called megaesophagus. Your vet can check for it by doing x-rays of his neck/chest.
