I have mentioned this in other posts he seems to feel sick and eats grass, then vomits on the carpet.
I gave him one of those big all day bones 3 days ago. I always cut any fat off as it seems to make him sick. I took it off him after an hour I took it off him thinking maybe he is getting too much.
Later that night usual wimpering, and wanting to come and go outside all night. Six vomit patches on the carpet. By 3am I put him in his kennel outside. It is Summer here, so wasnt cold. I have to wait for ages for him to come back inside..
I know someone has suggested enzyme stuff, but I dont' get that in N.Z.
The vet said some dogs have trouble digesting bones and it hurts. He hadn't had a chance to eat any bone.
Edited to add. he seems to be getting worse. His previous owner bought him the big bones and when i first got him he didn't have a problem.
Kassa waiting for me to come home.
Any ideas. Feeding raw i think he needs the calcium and also hard food rather than soft all the time.
hi kassabella and ernie, when you say its getting worse, do you mean he is still vomiting today and hasn't ate any bone or do you mean everytime he eats bone he gets sicker! What (other then large big bones) do you feed and are the bones meaty or is it just a plain bone?
I mean each time he eats bones he vomits more and is up and down all night.
I feed raw meat and vege. he is fine on everything else. I used to give him bones every 2 days. now I have cut it down to one every two weeks.
By trial and error I know it is the bones that make him uncomfortable and sick.
It is with any bone. The big meaty bone, the big marrow bone, or the little beef rib dog bones.
Yesterday he didn't eat any of the bone. Just the meat, grissle and marrow. I took the bone off him in case it was too rich. No he still puked on the carpet. Yellow with bits of grass. Stains the carpet.
When he is outside for ages I think he is eating grass, then vomits.
I presume they eat grass to make themselves sick. He does this only after eating bones.
Do you feed any softer bones? chicken necks/wings/thighs/legs/pork ribs? with the beef ribs, mine just eat the meat and leave the bone.
I think i would definitely try some softer bones (chicken rabbit, pork) so he has his calcium/phosphorous still. (Like trickster said) I'd feed chicken its easy. A whole chicken cut up into serving size pieces. Large beef bones are really hard, can chip teeth and are tough to eat, i think they may be better just for recreational chewing (although I've heard lots of comments about marrow bones, soup bones and all day dino bones chipping teeth and not to offer them at all). Good Luck
