Please help - Rottweiler pup vomiting daily!
by Kelley S
I have a 14 week old Rottweiler puppy she is suppose to be going to the vet for her second round of puppy shots thursday. But for about 4 days she has been vomiting anywhere from 2 to 3 times a day.
She plays with our other two dogs which are fully vaccinated and eats, drinks and does her "business" with no problems. But when she vomits it's chunks of her food, I thought maybe she was eating too fast and just not chewing her food but we feed her away from the older two dogs to ensure they don't eat her food and she doesn't eat their food.
I'm wotried there is something wrong with her and I don't know what to do!! My mother-in-law said it could be she is too anxious because she is too spoiled.
Please help me, btw I have not changed he food but is it possible for her food to be to rich for her stomach I feed her beneful healthy puppy.
Luckily it sounds as though your puppy is healthy and active apart from this repeated vomiting, and from what you describe it's more like regurgitation than vomiting as her food is undigested.
There are all sorts of reasons that this could happen... ranging from something as simple as eating too quickly, to a physical problem with her esophagus or some other health issue. As you don't say she has problems drinking, then hopefully it's something on the minor end of this scale!
I'd recommend that you discuss this with your veterinarian and make sure she gets a check up to rule out any physical problems. If she tends to gobble down her food (which a lot of Rotties do), a 'go slow' bowl such as the Brake-Fast Dog Food Bowl can help.
If she's been eating the same food since before you got her, I doubt that it's upsetting her, but it's always possible. If the check up doesn't reveal a problem and the special bowl doesn't help, you may want to try putting her on a food that's specifically designed for puppies/dogs with sensitive tummies. There are a whole range of these to choose from.
Hope this helps some and that your puppy is doing better soon. Good luck.
