• Our male has been diagnosed with IBS and A-Typical Addison's Disease. After cortisol testing last month, docs decided no further medications unless issues became worse, etc. Two days in a row this week he woke up between 2-5am and threw up (no changes in food or routine these days) and this has become an every 3-4 week occurrence over the past 2.5 months or so. Should we just come to expect this with the two diagnosis from above or should we now return for even more additional testing? (his previous diagnosis was based on weight loss, being lackadaisical, excessive eating of feces and urinating way more than our other female while both get the same amount of water each day. Both are on a raw diet also)

    Hi Victoria,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. Vomiting as much as you are describing is concerning and could be related to the diseases but it could be related to the raw diet or something else altogether. Your vet knows your pet and will be able to give you the best advice on if he needs more testing or treatments.

Need more information or advice?
