Has he been checked for pancreatitis?

 

Usually, when dogs have food issues, you’ll need to first look at the carbohydrate source. if the issues persist, then try switching the protien.

 

Fat could very well be giving his issues. I’d also talk to your dog walker to make sure he didn’t get into anything…especially if he’s let off leash! (puddle water will do it)

What a doll!

 

Ask them about colitis as well. It can be controlled with meds and a diet change. Good luck!

Could he be allergic to something? Wheat in his kibble, or puppy milk.. anything? I guess it’s unlikely if it seems to be triggered by table scraps 🙁 poor little dude.

@fireworksgirl:  What a precious puppy!! Have you tried a different dry food?  Maybe give only dry food for a while and see if that makes a difference.  It may just be too much for his little tummy.  I’m not sure if this makes a difference but are the pieces of food large?  He may not be chewing them well?  That may not mean anything, it just popped in my head.

I would ask your vet about using pepcid. That’s what we were using for my dog. And he’s great now.

Also how many times a day is he eating? Is the puking happening at a specific time? My dog was getting sick at 5pm almost on the dot every night. Turned out he needs 3 smaller meals a day. Picked up a (though pricey) automatic feeder. And he hasn’t puked since.

My yorkie had IBD, inflammatory bowel disease. I would ask your vet about this too! He couldn’t have the smallest of table scraps or he would puke and/or have explosive diarrhea. We had to put him on anti-inflammatories and a very bland low fat food designed for stomach issues (medi-cal gastro).

Good Luck – I know how hard it is to see your little guy suffer like this!

I second (third?) the colitis suggestion. This seriously JUST happened with our hound. He is prone to stress-induced colitis and he had just been to the vet for surgery, and so he got a little colitis cause of that experience. He started with the skirrly tummy and progressed to the bloody diarrhea (sooo gross!) too. It was cleared up within the week with a round of antibiotics and bland food.

One of my kiddies eats everything and he’s 7.  Last bout of stomach issues and constipation, I took to the internet and found an extremely bland diet:

Pumpkin- Organic pumpkin in the can is great.

Rice-Brought a rice cooker cause it took us a month to get his tummy under control.

Chicken Stock- To give flavor

String Beans

I fed him for a good month and added chicken w/out skin when he was doing better. 

For deyhdration, add clear Pedialyte to his water.  Great source of electrolites.

My other kiddie has a weak stomach and she’s a senior.  We discovered that lamb didn’t work well for her so I switch to chicken only. 

Also I found blogs that discussed our particular kiddie’s breed and now have figured out which brands are best for them.  Yes, its taken me several months but now the kiddies jump for joy when I feed them.
