my lab has been throwing up almost everyday after she eats. Took her to the vet today, they did every test they could there and found NOTHING wrong. Next thing is more extensive tests. Really i just spent over 200(dont know today bill yet) for you to see nothing wrong. He is going to give her meds to settle her stomach and a steroid incase there is some inflamation some where. BUT really where does it stop. I am not being heartless, but this is my dog not my child.

on a lighter note, when the vet was feeling around on her she had a look on her face like THIS IS THE BEST MASSAGE I HAVE EVER HAD.


I love my husband and kids, but there is something missing, LIKE MAYBE A LIFE!!!!!!!

How old is she?

I get the costs, and not wanting to break the bank on testing.

Did they do xrays to be sure she didn't pull a typical lab stunt, and eat something that may be blocking the way?
Is she still pooping?
Has she lost weight?

Just trying to think of causes, and need more info.

I wonder if your pup has developed an allergy. Does her food have corn/grains in it?
Two of my three dogs seem to have a bad reaction to any food with grains in them so we only feed them grain-free foods. We noticed improvement within a few days.

I would look into her food as well. Though, the first thing I thought was "she eats too fast". Don't know about your lab, but mine eats like he might never see food again, at every single meal. The bowl is empty 30 seconds after I put it on the floor .
So she could be eating way too fast. They make a dish so they won't gulp and get bloat.. it's got a bump in the center so all the food is around a ring in the outside and they have to eat slower and work to get it. I'm thinking of one myself.

I asked about the food thing, Dr said he would see more itching and skin problems if it was the food. She has alway gulped her food. the throwing up can be anywhere from half hr after eating to 3 hrs after eating

PS she does not get Jerky treats

Good point about the dog eating too fast! I have a cat (who is skittish around the dogs) who gulps his food and always vomits a little while later.

I got sick of cleaning up his mess, so we got a bowl something like this:

It works VERY well!
Try searching "slow feed pet bowl" on amazon or pet store sites.

This might be a dumb question, but is she eating grass, or possibly even poop? My dog does this.

Wouldn't this only happen if she was allergic to the food? Perhaps the formulation of the food has been changed and it just does not agree with her stomach?

We have always had Airedales as a kid and when I was grown, and they are notorious for digestion problems. My DD fed the last one a Krystal burger and the dog had horrid liquid diarrhea for two days. (horrid as in change the carpet in the bedroom horrid) I always fed lamb and rice food and that controlled it. Maybe try that? Hugs to you and ur poor dog...

I had a cat who used to throw up after she ate. Turned out it was the dye in the food that was making her sick. She never had itchy or irritated skin, just throwing up food. Could be worth a try checking out the food angle.

My one dog will throw up if I give her anything with wheat. Typically.a couple of hours later. I would keep a log of what she eats and then throws up. Also have a friend whose dog throws up due to food gulping. ((Puppy))

I recommend a "slow down" bowl and the grain free dog food. Both my labs and one Sheltie throws up grain foods (although they can tolerate grain people food in small amounts).

One of my pugs did this for the first year of his life. He gulped his food and we thought that was the problem. Our first vet ran the same tests and just shrugged it off. We got a new vet, and she said that he was likely allergic to the food. Well, 1 year later of trying every food under the sun we have identified his allergies (poultry, beef, wheat, corn) and we have gotten him LID food that has been a life saver.

I recommend getting specialty food with limited ingredients and seeing what happens. Proteins like venison can actually be easier on their systems.

Good luck to you and your sweet girl.

Try a mixture of boiled hamburger and rice for a couple of days.

Also, canned pumpkin (not the pie mix, just pure pumpkin) mixed in with the food will help with digestive issues.

Also, definitely get the dish with the bumps - labs are notorious gulpers (as are corgis)!

Ok so she isn't loosing weight at an alarming rate, which means she is still getting nutrition. This is good.

Is she a tall lab? Or have a really deep chest? If so try raising her bowl if you are feeding her on the floor. My Dane had to have an elevated bowl or she would reflux after eating, also helps prevent bloat, in addition the slow down bowls are essential when you have a lab, they act like they are never going to eat again.

I would try switching her to the no grain diet for a while. My MIL had a dog that had developed an allergy to the food as well, and he didn't have itchy skin and all that, but when she switched his diet around he was fine.

She made him ground chuck with some carrots potatoes, and green beans, he loved it, and was sick no more. He's going on 13, and still acts like a puppy.

she is always eating grass. Loves it. Both of my dogs do

I read awhile ago (and asked my vet) about dogs eating grass. Turns out they do that so they will throw up. It's their way of settling their stomachs. So I agree with the others.. eliminate grains and go with ONE protein source to start. You should be able to eliminate the source that way.

Ironically I've got my puppy on antibiotics and probiotics (to counteract the effect of the antibiotics on his tummy) right now. He has a rash on his belly, that turned into a mild staff infection.
He had it once very early on and it went away on it's own right about when we switched his food.
We keep his food in a giant bin. When we got to the bottom of the bin this month some of the last bag was at the bottom. He ate it for a few days.. and the rash was back. I'm pretty positive it's the food. It's all done now and we'll stick with the new food that he is doing really well on.
It's Acana fwiw.
