i think we will change his feeding times and see if that makes a difference,
since we night have been feeding him too far apart- dinner around 7 and breakfast around 8 am, i think this may have been the problem
I have noticed that my dog has been vomiting around everyday,usually in the mornigns, before breakfast, and refuses to eat until almost everyone in the house is gone. if he hasnt eaten in a while, his whole body convulses and he vomits stomach acid:eek:
once we finally get him to eat, sometimes hes been so hungry that he eats the whole bowl of food really fast! even then, he will vomit because he ate too fast!
we try to feed him 3 times a day (since hes still a puppy) and we walk him at least once a day. do i need to take him to the vet if this continues?
we've tried putting hot water in his food, and that seemed to help since the hot water makes him smell it from across the room… but usually in the mornings he still wont eat! the only meal he wont eat is breakfast, does this mean something? does anyone else have this problem?
im afraid that the voimit is damaging his stomach lining an throat, so any help is greatly apreciated!!
thank you so much for any answers you guys can give me!!
alright, i'll give pumpkin a try this weekend.
i will also start using brown rice instead, i had'nt thought of that, so i'll use it when i make his food for the following week this weekend
its funny that you should mention that carrots are high in sugar,
because he will actually spit out the carrots from his meal, so we picked them out of the rest of his food.
He has lost all of his puppy teeth by now, and his breath doesnt smell, other than his normal "dog breath".
Thank you so much for all the suggestions,
so far we have tried a diet of homemade food (some rice, ground turkey, and sliced carrots) and served it half and half with his regular dry kibble.
we thought this should help the smell, but didnt.
I am pretty sure he doesn't have an anal gland problem, he has never scooted across the floor, and i checked after he got up from a nap, he leaves no fluid on his bed.
I will check his feet for a smell, thank you! i never would've thought of that!
as for the pumpkin, it is a great idea, but my puppy has recently had diarria,
and the vet explained that it was because of a sensitive stomach, so we're not sure wheather or not to try that.
again, thank you so much for the help, i was so suprised that so many of you took your time to answer, thank you.
we are feeding him digestive food from the vet
(he recently had diarrhea and vomiting). Stool samples @ Vet's office revealed no bacteria, worms, etc. Put on anti-diarrheal medicine.
Vet reccommended food is called royal canine digestive formula, low fat.
Ok, so there might alredy be a thread like this, but i just need to know…
i recently taught my basenji that when he rings a bell on the door, someone will take him outside and he will be praised.
the only problem is that he loves being outside, so he
will ring the bell when he just wants to be outside,
not to... do his buisness...
i dont want to un-train him from using the bell, and saying "no" for ringing it when he just wants to be outside, but i really dont have the time or patients to take him out evry 10 minutes...
