Q. Hi my dog is often sick after eatting he bring all his undigested food up. It looks like its all been regurgiteted

Answered By

A. This is common in pets that eat too fast. If this describes your dog, there are a couple things you can try. The first is to slow down his eating. This can be done by dividing up the meals in to smaller, more frequent feedings, by adding large stones or balls to the bowl for him to eat around or to use a special "slow feed" bowl. Elevating the bowl may decrease the amount of air ingested which can contribute to the condition. If it continues, see your vet for an exam.
