Q. My dog is randomly vomiting what appear to be undigested kibble. His pancreatitis labs are normal, what else could it be?
A. It may be dietary indiscretion, food sensitivity or even gluttonous (rapid) eating. Try withholding food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. If the vomiting stops, transition slowly to the regular diet. If not, try feeding the regular diet in small, frequent amounts in elevated bowls. Large stones in the bowl or special bowls can be used to slow down eating if necessary. If the vomiting persists, see your veterinarian. Consider abdominal xrays and discuss food elimination trials and allergy testing with your veterinarian.
