Lately Rocky has been throwing up right after his breakfast. His energy level is fine and he seems to be acting normal. Also, there's been no significant change to his routine and he only does this after his breakfast. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?
What are you feeding him? is he exercised before or after he eats?
Is he gulping down his breakfast too fast? My daughter's lab does that and it comes right back up.
Does he gobble his kibble extremely fast, maybe more so at breakfast than in the afternoon? Are you feeding out of a bowl, say a 2 qt. stainless type? You might try feeding out of 8" or 9" cake baking pan or a 9" round crock type bowl. That way food is spead out and they can't gobble up mouthfuls so quickly.
He gobbles down his food the same morning and night and is exercised after he eats. This is his routine and it hasn't been a problem until the last few days. Trickster, he is eating a dry food called TLC ( a Canadian company) mixed with a bit of water.
hmm wonder if hand feeding him breakfast would help.
It's possible that he is eating it so fast on a empty stomach in the morning and that is why it's coming right back up.
Oh does he drink a lot of water before or after breakfast?? That could make him throw up too.
See of hand feeding his kibble little bit at a time keeps him from throwing up. If you are pressed for time...then as has been suggested above...spread the kibble out on a cookie sheet to slow him down.
Hope this helps!

He doesn't drink any water before or after breakfast and I only put enough water in his kibble to float it.Originally Posted by Buckyball
could be an obstruction or anything...
I would simply get wet dog food ane feed a tablespoon every hour for about 8 hours then start to increase it - SLOOOOOWWWWLY.
I thought maybe he was eating too fast on an empty stomach. Hope he is okay. Hand feeding in the morning may help. Please let us know how he is doing.
I think I have the problem licked. I take Rocky for his walk before feeding him and no more upchuck. That was simple. :
