|This has become consistent over the past few days.
For years and years and years, I have given Sanka ice as a summer treat to cool him off. He loves ice, and never had a problem with it. Earlier this week, I gave Sanka some ice. He happily ate it, but about 2 minutes after, he was throwing up. Just once or twice and then he's good.
I thought maybe the heat in combination with him eating the ice on an empty stomach perhaps didn't settle well. So, the next time I gave him ice, it was after he ate. He did just fine for a few days.
So, I do that, but it doesn't last long. He soon started throwing up, without fail, after eating the ice no matter if he had eaten before or not.
He loves ice, and it is a good way to keep him cool. I've been trying different amounts at different times with and without food...he just keeps throwing up. It's all related to the ice, and he only throws up once or twice a few minutes after eating the ice.
He's done it on the 100 degree days...when it's 60 degrees out at night....after a walk...you name it.
It's so sudden, and he's never had this before. Like I said, I've given him ice in all sorts of scenarios before and never had an issue. Even gave him ice all through this heat wave and he never had an issue until a few days ago.
I like ice to help keep him cool because the next thing I have is hosing him down...and he HATES that.
Just wondering if anyone else has this issue with their dog or if anyone has any idea why he has had such a sudden onset of all of this pukiness.
Mr. Pukey is just fine otherwise. Eats fine. Drinks plenty of water. Eager for walks. Rolls around in the grass like a puppy.
