    Orion will throw up if she exerts herself at any time. It may be a palate issue also. Did they check her for an elongated palate and/or abnormally small trachea?

    ok ...i asked in a thread the other day about how much to feed her and most responses were 3/4 cup three times a day because she svery stocky and built but i will try to reduce it ..shes a hungry girl

    Okkkk I've never had it happen n my breeder was far from great lol buttttt she was neurotic about one thing n that was food I fed 2/3 cups 3 times a day n I "had" to wet n microwave the food!!! Now like I said my breeder was far from great but I went through my bulldog care book she gave me n in it she wrote to prevent vomiting on exertion (sounds kinda like what poor Lucy is doing) prepare food as follows 2/3 cup eagle packs puppy 1/2 cup water microwave for 30 seconds stir and microwave for another 15 seconds!!! Not saying u need to do that but I've heard a lot of puppies will vomit their kibble up bcuz they don't drink enough even though they drink so it just basically lubes the food n makes it digest easier!!!!! Plus it won't hurt her if u want to give it a try with what u feed her!!!!!! Hugs for u n Lucy let us know how she's doing!!!!!

    Winston (8 months) will throw up sometimes and it could be up to three hours after eating. He did it more when he was a small pup. Sometimes he is just playing to hard with another dog or just on a walk. He mainly did this in the summer but two weeks ago we took him on a snowy trail and at the end he threw up twice. I think Winston does it because he is too excited. Maybe that is why Lucy is?

    My vet says they should go at their food like they are starving to death. Rudy's breeder wasn't happy with us because Rudy wasn't growing as fast as his fat brother. I try to go somewhere in the middle. Mila is 8-1/2 months and eats about 2-1/4 cups a day plus about 1-1/2 TSP of cottage cheese. She had soft, really soft, stools when we brought her home at 9 weeks @ 2-1/2 cups a day. After a visit to the vet, We cut her back to about 1-1/2 cups and she was fine. Whenever we tried to increase the amount too fast she would get soft stools. We try to use the feel the ribs method. If they have ribs with meat they are good. If they have "rib" they are fat. If the ribs are too pronounced (no meat on the bones) they are too skinny. Your dog food may have a higher or lower energy content so please use my suggestions and others as a guideline.

    Lots of good info given.... I would try to keep her settled for about a half-hour after eating to see if that also helps

    I think you got all the info you need, I would say too if she is devouring her food consider getting a slow feed bowl. Good luck
