Default Occasional retching and vomiting

Jazz has always had a bit of a sensitive stomach....at least that's what the Vet has said, because he can find no cause of her occasionally retching and sometimes throwing up.

She'll retch and retch, and then sometimes she'll throw up a sort of muddy looking liquid, and sometimes she won't throw up at all. She's been tested, she's in perfect health, she shows no signs of illness or feeling under the weather. Her eyes are bright, coat shiny, she bounds around like the hyper lunatic that she's always been.

I feed them both a high quality grainless kibble (I cycle through the good ones out there...their current one is Fromm Hasen Duckenpfeiffer) supplemented with omega oils and various nutritional boosters for joint health (because of Tango's Addison's symptoms) and other immune support supplements. Jazz's bouts of retching and vomiting are completely random...no correlation between food changes, supplement additions, nothing that would explain it. They both live a very controlled life primarily as a result of Tango's illness, so there's little to no chance she's getting into anything random.

Does anyone else deal with this kind of issue with their dogs....the random retching, occasional vomit, but nothing's wrong, nothing else ever comes of it?

Leo has a sensitive stomach too. He goes through bouts where he throws up a few times over a day or two then it stops, or he gets a day of diarrhea. I recently gave him only grilled chicken after a diarrhea bout mixed with a little rice and he got better quickly. He never acts like anything is bothering him, he's always his mischievous self, but I totally relate.

Anyone else have any experience with this? Hard to believe that Jazz and Leo are the only two chis that do this.

My pug/Jack Russell mix does this. I have noticed that it can come with major weather changes and I think it is from post-nasal drip (saliva/mucous going down the throat). He also has a collapsing trachea, and does it way more if he wears an ID collar or his harness around. Even a sweater can put enough pressure on his throat to trigger it now. Nothing you can really do but give them something for the stomach upset it causes if it gets bad.

Zarita is prone to reflux. That is different from regular vomiting though. No gagging, or retching, just all of a sudden she leans forward and brings up foam, or kibble if she has just eaten. The vet put her on a quarter of a 10 mg Pepcid. She has been really helped by it. I had her worked up for this years ago by a specialist, and they confirmed the diagnosis.

Pearl does that. Not long age it got really bad and I took her to the vet. He said she had lost most of the good bacteria in her gut. He gave her an antibiotic, kaolin to settle her stomach and she was on probiotics for 6 months. Now she just gags occasionally.

Mine does this occasionally around the time its time to feed her. Gaggs a bit I feed her and it goes away. Usually in the morning after shes slept all night. Could be low blood sugar

Kody does this too...... I have noticed if he eats ANYTHING with the slightest bit of grease in it..... weather a drop on the floor or someone sneaking his a bite.... he will vomit up white foam and be sick for a couple of days....
