Duke Regurgitated Last Night

Last night around 12:30a Duke refurgitated a small amount of food. It was 6 hours after eating dinner and he seemed fine afterwards. The only thing i can think of is that he and Connor played hard by running laps in the yard around 10p, and maybe that unsettled his dinner from earlier? Before I freak out and start to think the worst, has anyone ever had a golden that regurgitated food several hours after eating and it was an isolated incident?

My RB GR Murphy used to do that. We spent 100's of dollars to find out why, only to learn "That's just Murphy" LOL
It didn't happen too often and it never seemed to be connected to exercise or anything we could figure out. He didn't seem bothered by it. He did it his entire life.

@Bentleysmom: thanks for the response. This is the first time Duke has ever regurgitated, but because our first golden (Paul) had megaespohagus and regurgitated often I couldn't stop myself from freaking out. Then I did a search on the work regurgitate and the results were all about myasthenia gravis and such, and I started to freak even more. Thanks for the reply and reassurance.

Yes, my pup has done that a couple times for no obvious reasons. Completely fine after, didn't happen again. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Thanks everyone for responding. So far it hasn't happened again and I'm at a level below freaking out. I do think that Duke eats way too fast and going to switch him to a slow feeder bowl, which may help overall.

I thought the occasional blurp up of food was just a normal part of having a dog. All my dogs have occasionally barfed up a wad of chewed kibble and occasionally a whole meal.

I think of puking as normal dog behavior when it only happens once in a while. Barfing doesn't indicate a sign of problems in my book unless it happens several times in right in a row or daily for more than two days, or unless the dog is heaving repeatedly without bringing anything up.

We had a vet that told us that dogs can vomit almost at will. An occasional upchuck is no cause for alarm if there is no other sign of illness...... but repeated vomiting or a dog who acts "off"... then that's a different story.
