Occasional vomiting.......what do you think?
This is kind of a tough one because I have taken my 2 yr.old spayed female lab to the vet just weeks ago and she was given a clean bill of health. She has vomited before just like she is now and she just quits doing it. She throws up her kibble after a few hours and it seems to just be the kibble and only partially digested. She may only vomit a few times a week for maybe 2 weeks and then she may not do it again for months and months. Dh and I live on a small farm but Ruby is never out of sight for very long because she goes out with us when we do our chores; feed the other animals, etc. Of course, she wasn't vomiting when she had her check-up but I have asked the vet about it before and she said something like," oh, labs you know how they are; always getting into things and eat like it's their last meal". Ruby has now been vomiting every day for about the last 5 days; maybe once or twice a day. It is always partially digested kibble; no foam, no bile, no blood. We have been trying to feed her smaller meals more often during the day, it helps some but when she does throw up the "pile" is just smaller. We have changed her dog food a few times in the past and now wonder if we should again? She acts normal, of course she hangs her head after she vomits but after that she seems fine. She is starting to lose some weight. If we were to take her to the vet what do you think they would do...x-ray maybe? Thank you for reading all this; just don't know what might be causing this !
