Does anyone know the cause of why chis would vomit? Guinness vomited shortly after dinner tonight - though it wasn't any of his food... it was of his auntie shadows, who he snuck in a few nibbles. When he threw it up, it was still whole..

Anyone have any idea why this happened and should I be concerned?

Kemo and Bindi both can throw stuff up whole, that is their body saying that it just doesnt feel right or simply they are running around and they get sick or even they are chewing a bone and they gag themselves. I have had the fun of all of the above :roll:

if hes acting ok dont worry!

A change in food can somtimes upset the stomick or maybe he gobbled it up so fast as you say it was whole peices and he got sick shortly after. Or Maybe he was just stuffed :lol:

I wouldn't be to worried unless he is acting unnormal.

I agree, if he's acting normal I wouldn't worry about it. In the past when Zeus was a puppy,he would sometimes practically inhale food so fast, it would just come back up.

chiwi did that just the other night. i had company over and after showing off and then getting upset with the visitor (chiwi is protective of me with men!!) she went to eat and was just so preoccupied she kept looking over at him and looking at me and then eating, after like 4 bites she threw it up. i felt so bad for the little girl! but for her it was just nerves. it sounds to me that guiness just wolfed the food down to quick (maybe he did it fast so he wouldn't get caught cause it wasn't his...) and the combination of eating to fast and it being a new food brought it back up.

Awww poor chis. Guinness is perfectly alright.. in fact, he tried eating it aferwards :roll: His poops are back to normal, solid. (They were a little runny. .Im guessing because of the stress of the move).

He's doing great otherwise!

If the food is still in an "intact" or whole form, it's not vommitting, it's regurgitation. Regurg is seen in dogs with megaesophagus and periodically for dogs that are running/eating/running at the same time. Don't let your chi eat and play at the same time, or eat too quickly, if they are inhaling their food, take it away and only offer a few bites at a time and it will help avoid this problem. Hope that helps!
