Default Chi regurgitating a few hours after meals...

Hi all! My almost 4 year old chihuahua regurgitates food or water a few hours after eating. Sometimes it's grainy water and others is liquified kibble. It happens super quickly and only a couple tablespoons. If we feed him chicken or other "human" food(cooked meats), it doesn't happen. It doesn't seem to bother him. I have a "rotation" of foods--Orijen Originals and Timberwolf Legends, and it's happened on both foods.


Also, we went to the vet about three weeks ago because he had an allergic reaction to fleas. They then gave him 2 weeks worth of an allergy medicine, and while he was one it, he didn't throw up(BUT I had to give him chicken with his meals to coax him into eating the pill).

Any advice? I jut bought a bag of Wellness Core Small Breed. Part of me thinks it's an issue of his food being digested too quickly(he's known to throw up bile of he's gone too long without a meal). But it's happening like 2-3 hours after eating... thank you in advance!

Is this regurgitation or vomiting.? Vomiting is with heaving and retching, while regurgitation happens without the former. The dog just all of a sudden, lowers his head and up it comes. If it is regurgitation, then I'd have a vet look at a possible eosohegeal problem. 2 hours is a lot of time to go buy after eating. If chicken makes this better, I'd be inclined to add it to the kibble??

Thank you for your response! It's definitely regurgitation. And I think you're right about continuing to add chicken to his food. It's not affecting his behavior at all, which definitely eases my mind. He hasn't done in since yesterday afternoon.

When I worked at a natural dog food store, we always recommended a chicken-based canned food to soothe stomachs. I have found it works for me too! If you don't want to put plain chicken in there, a small amount of wet food and a little warm water make a sort of stew that I have had success with.

Of course, I also always say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! So stick with the chicken if that is easier for you!
