hi my dog is about 6 months old, and hes been throwing up every other day for about 2 weeks now.when i say every other day i mean exactly every other day. i have taken him to the vet twice already and did xrays and said theres nothing in his stomach. they said his stomach looked gasy and his intestines were a little enlarged. they checked his stools for any worms or that other stuff. when he throws up he does a wheezing noise like coughing a hair ball..then throws up twice and his throw up is yellow. he doesnt act sick at all he eats drinks plays and his stools are solids. i have really no idea what to do anymore. hes on a perscription diet with some anitbiotics for his stomach.. the dr suggested that they do a berium swollow and blood work but that all cost 600 bucks and if they find something it will be another 600 and i dont exactly have that money..so if anyone can help me out and if this sounds like anything youve heard please help.. thank you
some dogs will vomit up bile, the yellow liquid, when they have an empty stomach. is there a particular time of day when he does it or is it random ? a barium series is what we do to determine if there is something in his digestive tract that is blocking food or liquids from going through. it is possible thata he could have an obstruction, but only a partial one and that is why his vomiting is intermittent. but in most cases of an obstruction that is not the case, it is usually a full blockage.
how many times daily are you feeding him ? is his vomiting first thing in the morning, or close to one of his meal times ?
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
i usually feed him around 12 and around 2 in the morning...it i always thought that it could be cause hes hungry...but i usually feed him around the same times every day..i dont get how its every other day that he throws up..he usually throws up around 1 or 12 when we both wake up. today he hasnt had to vomit yet cause i fed him as soon as we woke up...soo i guess everyother day his tummy is sensative and needs more attention then other days
