• My dog (whom is usually obsessed with her breakfast and dinner) hasn't been eating her food right away for the past 2 weeks. I've been monitoring her-she has been acting normal, going to the bathroom normally, and even begging for treats as she normally would. Eventually, she will eat her food when she is hungry enough. I usually wouldn't be concerned but when she does eat her food, she vomits it all up within about 30 minutes or so. She is a very curious dog and it is possible that she might have gotten into something. Should I be concerned? Thank you.

    Hi Lauren, I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The not wanting to eat along with the vomiting is concerning. Especially if she could have eaten something. This can mean that she has a foreign body in her GI system. If that is the case earlier treatment can help to prevent certain complications. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause for her symptoms after they have examined her. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain causes. The treatment that she needs will depend on the severity and underlying cause of her symptoms.
