Default sick stomach

Jack is 11 and has been throwing up off and on for months. Been to the vet of course. I am trying to find a great dogfood that is very good for sensitive stomachs, He is on Lamb and rice by Nutro natural choice. Any advice? Thanks.

Hi...do you know why he has been throwing up for so long? Did they determine what it could be.

I am very sorry to hear that your fluff has been so ill. I think we need a bit more information in order to best help you out. What tests have been run and what were the results?

Sorry about that. The vet said he was fine, yet has a sensitive stomach. I tried Blue, nutro and a couple of others, but he just seems to throw up every other day and a lot of yellow bile. He will go back and want to eat. Yet throws up later. Thinking of doing the homecooking. Thanks.

I believe that yellow bile is an indication of acid in his stomach. I do homecook but you have to be careful and make sure he gets all the nutrients and vitamins he needs. I add them in when I feed Zoe which is twice a day.

My cat did that a lot because of kidney disease. I assume your vet checked for that?

Have you tried feeding the same amount but split up into more times a day? This might help make sure his tummy never goes empty. Also, if you feed the last portion several hours before going to bed, try feeding a treat before bed to help hold up the tummy until the morning feed.

That's a good point. How many times a day do you feed him. Maybe his belly is empty for too long.

Have you tried giving Pepcid? I believe the dose is 1/4 tablet 2 times daily. That may help with the stomach acid.

I have always let them eat whenever they want. Always food for them in their bowls. (A yorkie also-Nash). Their weight has always been perfect, so I just let them eat whenever. The more I read, I do believe it could be acid reflux. Thanks guys, very good suggestions.
