|I have a two year old Boxer/American Bull Dog mix, Addey. We have had a lot of issues with her vomiting...and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced any issues like this. What has worked for you? What hasn't?
The vomiting started about a year ago and ever since, her vomiting has been very weird. We have had her one 5 or 6 different dog foods, from Diamond, Iams, to Nature's Recipe Grain Free. When we put her on the grain free food, she stopped vomiting for about two to three months....the longest she has gone without vomiting, However, it came back. When she throws up, it is partly digested food and bile. She typically throws up during the evening hours. She is very weird about eating as well. Sometimes she will eat her food and other times, she will not. We know that it isn't a bad batch of dog food because we have three other dogs on this food as well. The other day, after about three weeks of vomiting, I decided to give her wet dog food. So, I have her two tubs of Rachel Ray Nutrish wet dog food and her normal amount of dog food (she is losing weight) and she scarfed it down. The next morning and evening, we did 1 tub of food and regular amount of normal dog food. She hasn't thrown up since...and that was four days ago.
For the past six months, she has been given a walzan everyday, the vet thinking that maybe it's acid reflux....doesn't really work.
Not really sure where to go from here....vet recommends a scope of her insides. The vomitting isn't really an issue for us...we can clean it up. The issue is that she loses weight. And as a high energy boxer, she doesn't have any weight to lose!!
Thanks in advance for any advice/experiences you share! They are GREATLY appreciated!
