• About a month ago we switched Brady's food and yesterday he threw up after eating some of his breakfast, then went in and ate the rest of his food and seemed fine throughout the rest of the day. Then were out in the evening and he threw up a then ate it then threw up again. Is he stick or could it be the food? He is due to be castrated on Tuesday and i want to make sure he is healthy for everything.

    Hi Pamela,
    If he is still vomiting, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. Vomiting like you are describing can be caused by many different things incluiding infection, intestinal parasites, a GI foreign body, or an underlying medical issue. It is unlikely that the food is causing this since he was switched a month ago. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the vomiting after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain causes. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause of the vomiting. Even if the vomiting has stopped you should mention this to his vet prior to the surgery. Your vet needs to know this prior to the procedure.
