    Default Finn's been Throwing Up :(

    So my little Boo-Boo-Finn started throwing up this morning. He was having reverse sneezing along with the vomiting. I thought he was done with vomiting after the first round since most of his breakfast came out but the little guy threw up a couple more times where it was frothy bile and I did see a couple tinges of pink which I can only assume is blood

    He started the Orijen Six Fish about 2 days ago so I'm wondering if he's reacting to that food change (?) He's also on cephalexin and apoquel, started about 5 days ago and wasn't having any problems so I don't think it's from the meds.

    Anyone have any thoughts? maybe he's picked up a bug. I'm going to feed him some plain white rice and maybe chicken broth for dinner. Do you think i could add some lean ground beef? he definitely still has an appetite and is acting normal.

    What was he eating before? The six fish is super high in protein - he could be reacting to it. Tyson didn't do so great on it either.....

    I would do the rice/chicken for a few days and see if it clears up. If he continues vomiting even after the bland, I'd be at the vet. Poor Finn.

    Thanks Jessica. Finn was on Earthborn Holistic prior to the Orijen. I switched him b/c of his skin issues, just trying to see which food he might be better suited for. Seems like there's one thing after another with him. So maybe the Six Fish is just too rich in protein for Finn. It sure cost a lot of $$! Tate is doing fine on it but then again, he's always been a little easier when it came to the food.

    Wonder if the meds are too much for his belly?

    I agree w/everyone… maybe the fish is too much or the meds. Have you ever had allergy testing done on him?

    Could be, or maybe the combination of switching foods PLUS being on those meds are just causing his tummy to do somersaults. Hoping it's just a temporary issue and he'll be good as new soon. So far this afternoon all he's been doing is terrorizing the gardener!

    no, never did the allergy testing on him but i considered it some time ago. He's probably a good candidate for that too b/c of all his "issues"!

    Totally get the allergy testing... Maybe give a pepcid before meal to see if it helps his belly. Is he drinking water normal?

    Yes @2BullyMama, he's drinking normally. He's hungry too...wants me to give him snacks (which I'm not doing), so that part is all normal. I don't have any pepcid, is that OTC? i'm a pharmacist, i should know this!

    Just make sure the only ingredient is fomotadine. There is a Pepcid that has fomotadine and another active ingredient, this not the one you want.

    Poor Finn I hope he feels better soon! Personally when I had Murray on the bland diet he didn't care for the chicken but loved the lean ground beef with rice and no salt chicken stock
