    Default Vomitting while playing

    I'm wondering if it's "normal" for bullies to vomit while they're playing. Last night, we took Blue to the dog park. He was running around, chasing another dog like crazy for about 10 minutes, then threw up his dinner. He ate at least 2.5 hours earlier. This is the second time this happened in the last 2 weeks. He needs to run around and get some exercise, I don't want to stop it- but is there anything I can do to prevent the vomiting?

    Ummmm, not sure what to do to prevent it unless eating even earlier
    before play? With heat & humidity, it is normal to throw up if really
    played hard...hopefully more experienced will come by & help you.

    Great to 'see' y'all!

    My pup does this sometimes, more so when he was younger and ate more meals. I try to always make sure that he doesn't over do it after a meal - I usually wait a few hours for him to digest. Sometimes even then he still pukes but keeps on playing. Silly bulldogs.

    I don't know if it's considered normal, but Winston does this... Of course he plays, eats some grass, hacks up (sometimes dinner) ... then runs around some more! I guess I just thought this was normal behavior... LOL

    Maybe try feeding him a small meal before going to the park and the rest when he gets home from playing.

    Our French used to do this in the summer. Probably just the excitement of it all. He's still a baby. Good to see you!!!

    It's good to see you guys too, @Texas Carol @pdolphon27 Thanks for the responses. I'm still concerned though. Going to the Vet (for his cherry eyes, he now has it in both eyes) tomorrow, will mention this as well. Between work, hubs and Blue, I've been very busy and just exhausted. Hoping this isn't anything serious.

    I know this bully that attends our meet ups that are known for always throwing up after playing too hard! Sometimes he pukes 2-3 times in a matter of 2 hours. His owner won't even feed him breakfast because she knows he tends to vomit while running around.

    I guess for some dogs it might just be a normal reaction when they play a little too hard! Hopefully is nothing serious

    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    if thats the only time they do it i dont think i would be to concerned. perhaps just a small meal before going to the park then feed the rest when you get home and they are rested a bit. maybe more rest time or breaks at the park. you could give a pepcid before going and see if that helps the vomiting.
