A. Intermittent vomiting can be related to eating food to quickly, sensitivity to certain food stuffs, scavenging from garbage cans or whilst out walking or low grade inflammation in the stomach. Feeding a consistent diet daily and ensuring it is chewed and eaten slowly, preventing scavenging and possibly probiotics can help. Tests to rule out underlying medical causes would be required if there was any associated signs such as abdominal discomfort or weight loss
