Bilious Vomiting Syndrome
My 6-year-old Havanese was recently diagnosed with bilious vomiting syndrome. When his stomach is empty, he vomits up bile. We have been working to fix this by adjusting his food schedule Ė we have been feeding him his daily portion of food spread throughout the day in 4 separate meals. It initially seemed to work, but then his vomiting just went back to the same frequency. He generally vomits up bile at least once every other day, if not daily. Usually in the middle of the night when his stomach is empty, but sometimes before dinner too. So frequency of meals hasn't helped. With his vet's advice, we put him on 5mg of Pepcid AC daily. That has helped somewhat, now he only vomits about twice per week. It's still not good enough and needs to stop completely. His vet just prescribed him a prescription food (we're waiting for it to be delivered, so haven't started on it yet), Hills Z/D. I am desperate for this to work, as I'm sure my pup is.
Has anyone had experience with bilious vomiting syndrome that has any insight?
