    Default Frequent Throwing Up

    Our Otis has been having frequent episodes of throwing up. Like maybe once or twice a week. He throws up and then he is fine. He is not losing weight and acts like his normal self. I have changed his food and that doesn't seem to have helped. We have noticed lately that he will groom himself and start gagging. Could he possibly have a hairball since they shed so much? If so how do I treat it?

    Well hopefully someone with more knowledge will be on to help soon...Meanwhile, my thoughts, my Harley was throughing up a few times a week, my vet suggested we feed alittle something around 8pm, because there tummies don't like to be empty for too long...say from 5pm till morning. We had to adjust his meals into 3x a day, some give a rice cake before bed.
    Not sure about your Otis might be something entirely different..lets see what the the others say.

    I have noticed that he tends to eat more in the evening. I told my husband this afternoon that we needed to start leaving him small amounts in his bowl instead of filling it full.

    Thank you. Our son named him and at first I hated it, but now the name fits him perfectly. Otis is 2.

    A vet visit might be best, just in case....We took Harley cause he started throwing up 3x a week or so..he sent us home with 4 anti-nausea pills and told us not to give the 4th if he stopped throwing up, along with dividing up the meals into 3 and giving them at 8am -4pm-8pm sometimes he falls asleep and i leave it in the bowl. Since then i measure them all out. if i catch anybody not measuring i...

    Yellowish sounds like it's bile = empty stomach. Try breaking up the feeding to twice a day, this might help alleviate it. Daphnee would do this, but in the morning, so she started getting a night time snack to help out.
