    Default Zoey is sick

    Hi again all. In my other posts, I described putting Zoey on a home cooked diet. She has done very well with this for over a week. However, today she is throwing up. She has thrown up about 6 times this morning. Her poo this morning was also mostly undigested food. She is drinking still. Is this a vet trip? Should I just stop the home cooked diet? I am so confused and feel just awful for her. What do I do???

    Oh poor Zoey, I hope you get her squared away soon. Wish I could help, but I'm still learning myself.

    If she is still drinking I would fast her for a day and let her stomach settle. What does your home cooking contain?

    As long as she is still drinking I would just give her a bland diet to day and see if that helps, if not a vet visit should be in order. Hope she get to feeling better soon. Poor baby girl.

    Thank you all. I feel just awful for her. I have been giving her a mix of beef, carrots, peas, and pumpkin this week. I thought she was doing so well as she stopped licking her paws and her face is clearing up beautifully. I'm thinking Fromm is in order after she feels better? I just want to get this right

    you will don't worry.. I hate when they throw up too but I agree if she is still drinking to wait a little bit if still no better or starts to throw up more often I would call the vet..
    Duke was very sick with a stomach bug a few weeks ago.. i usually rush him to the vet I waited a day and by the next day he was ok.. Hope she and you feel better soon !

    She is sleeping peacefully at my feet now while I work. I am blessed enough to be able to work from home so I am with her 24/7. She hasn't had a drink for over an hour though. I will keep eagle eyes on her.

    Throwing up 6 times in the morning is quite a bit.....how much did you feed her and what did you cook her? How is she throwing up and pooping out undigested food? I agree make sure she is drinking but the throwing up so many times scares me. Is she eating really fast. I have had slow feed bowls for all my bullies because they had inhaled their food. Also she may have an allergy that is why I am wondering what you are cooking?

    here's my opinion, smaller meals, she may be eating too much food. I see you have no carbs in her diet. how about a bit of cooked oatmeal to that meal. about 25% of the meal. so if she is getting 1 cup of food, 1/4 of that cup should be cooled cooked oatmeal, or maybe ever a cooked rice or potato, those are carbs also. she has no bone in the diet, so a carb should be in it's place. a tablespoon of pumpkin on top of that, and just might be in business. Let me know if you try this and how it's working. Keep me posted,
