Q. My 50 lb mixed breed regurgitate his food very often. Gulps water too. Feed him with slow feed bowl also. What can I do to try to stop regurgitation?

A. If you are feeding one or two larger meals during the day, it may help to increase the frequency (if possible) to several more small meals throughout the day. This will help limit the amount he is eating at once, and may help prevent him from overloading his stomach. If he is regurgitating mostly in the mornings, it may be that he is going too long between his last dinner meal and breakfast, and feeding a small biscuit last thing before bed or first thing in the morning might help to settle his stomach some before eating a meal. If the regurgitation continues even with changing some of his eating habits, then consulting with a veterinarian and looking for any physical issues causing the regurgitation may help.
