Default dogs that eat their vomit help

what does it mean when a dog eats it vomit yuk?Pearl started doing this again today i am think it could be the corn starch not sure lol in the dog food i fasting today and trying lean beef or chicken to see how she does later on today.how much should i give her 1/4 cups like her regular food? i was also trying Pepcid Ac and giving her the slippery elm. i am worried that i will have to take her to the vet tomorrow for in depth testing and the insurance won't want to pay for vet error waiting for a call back on the vet she saw back in february she put gasentertis /pancreatis i was not told she had this gastroenetis and pancreatis came back normal. now her actual vet same office she forgot to put the a note with diagnose she just stated vomiting eating ok.i don't want to have further testing if insurance won't pay for it. i am sad i will have to give her up causes of finances.

Sometimes they do that when they think they'll get in trouble, so they try to clean it up. There are many reason they do that. I would try to stop them. Have you tried a little pumpkin with her food? I'd feed her very small portions several times a day until she starts feeling better. I'm sorry your baby doesn't feel well.

Yes!

Also, just because it is half digested food, does not mean it isn't delicious!



Regarding feeding, you don't necessarily have to switch up her diet, you can
simply fast her for 12 hours, then offer tiny meals for a day or two. Make sure
she stays well hydrated. If she keeps throwing up however, or showing other
symptoms such as diarrhea, panting, lethargy or restlessness, etc, then you
should definitely take her in.

You don't have to be rich to properly care for a dog, or 4, but you do need to
be prepared because you just never know. Even when my dogs are fine, I put
aside a tiny amount every paycheck, into their account, even 5 or 10 dollars
helps, it all accumulates. So when we do have a little emergency I can cover
it, or partially cover it and put the rest on the card. I hope you can find a
way to keep your dog.

i am thinking it could the corn starch in the food not sure lol it started when i switched her food without doing a gradual switch eventhough it was her same brand and grain free plus i was not giving her probiotics only enzymes.i really taught buying the prescription diet would be ok but don't notice that the z/d had that ingredient should have gone with the i/d diet she has not had problems with that one before.may have to exchange that food for her to see how she does.i just can't figure out making the food myself when i feel terrible from a sinus infection.

can it be pancreatis vet is always blood testing her any time she gets sick and it comes back normal they says she could still have it what do you think i have been feed a high fat food since the last time they check it back in february.seems not to be an accruate test hate to pay for the same test if its not accruate in diagnosing it it really started with not making a gradually switch within the same brand grain free nature's variety
