    Defaultupset stomach after he eats

    Lately my 5 year old rottweiler will get an upset stomach after he eats. If I don't let him out after to gobble on some grass he will go around the house licking the carpet and sometimes he will vomit up his food. I tried giving him smaller amounts of food and he is okay. I wonder if he needs a vet visit. He doesn't do it every time he eats but it seems to be increasing. He has always had a sensitive stomach, so he has been on a strict diet all his life. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Is he a gulper? If you think it is a case of eating too fast maybe a brake fast bowl would help. How many times a day do you feed him. If only two you mgiht also try three feedings.

    Other wise possibly Sucralfate one hour prior to eating administered on an empty stomach would be helpful if something like Pepcid does not solve the problem. If it's been long term sucralfate might be the best route. Your vet can tell you for sure. You can give the Sucralfate 3 x's a day whereas he can most likely only hae two Pepcids a day.

    Diesel does this occasionally too even with a slow down bowl (and he actually eats much slower than he used to). He was on Pepcid for a while. It really does not happen frequently enough for me to consider it an issue for my dog. Good luck with your guy!

    I'd feed smaller meals til I got it checked out - why have him uncomfortable if you can help him
