Chronic vomiting;Is it allergy?
I am new to all this. I adopted my Havanese, Bailey, when he was 11 months old on Feburary 9, 2009. Noticed vomiting in his crate in morning but he had eaten most of it. He was on Eukanuba, I thought it was separation anxiety or anxious because I was anxious being a first time dog owner! He would vomit usually 6 - 8 hours after he eats and sometimes there would be mucous in the vomit. It happens intermittently, maybe for 4 or 5 days in a row 1 to 2 times a day.Then stops for 10 to 14 days. NO WEIGHT LOSS.He weighs about 16 #.
The Vet suggested a barium study to r/o tumor, in May '09 done and negative.
Then we tried different foods, slowly introducing Nutro Sensitive stomach and skin(did not eat that one), Science diet, purina pro plan.
September 09 switched to EN canned chicken and rice...still vomiting.
Oct 09 Vet switched to Prescriptive ultra zd only (as snacks too). Still vomiting.
In April 10 we moved Bailey to a bed in our bedroom at night and he developed bilateral ear infections(there was some dust in this new enviroment), cleared up with Rx ointment and prednisone. He did not vomit while on Prednisone.
I did lift food bowl up, thinking it he was swallowing air,but still vomiting.
I have fed him at regular times 2 x day, I have left food out.
His appetite is finicky when he has upset stomach, like he didn't eat breakfast last couple of days. I don't know what to do but I love my dog and would appreciate any help, suggestions. I will post a picture as soon as I can figure that out.
