I am worried about Sierra yesterday she threw up her lunch and I noticed it was whole she didn't while pieces. It looked like she had swalled it and didn't even chew. I fed her dinner and I noticed she was just swallowing her food and not even chewing she didn't throw that up. This morning when we got up she stated gagging and dry heaving but didn't throw anything up. I dropped her off at my SIL for the day and she said she was snorting when she ate and sound stuffy. I have an appointment with my vet at 3.30 today.

my husband is worried that we damaged her throat with her training colllar. Her obedience school had us start using the Matingale collar on her as of Saturday.

thanks for listening,

I don't think throwing up kibble in whole pieces is very unusual. I also doubt you would have damage Sierra esophogus with a training collar. It is worth the vet visit to find out why she is vomiting and gagging. Please let us know how she makes out.

I would definitely take her to the vet to have them check for a blockage. She could just have a stomach "bug". When Burgundy has an upset stomach (she doesn't throw up, it comes out the other end...) we give her Pepto Bismol. We use a syringe to just shoot it down her throat...might help settle things for little Sierra! I hope your little girl is feeling better soon. xoxo

The throwing up thing, we've all been through that. I would take her to the vet - not so much worrying about any damage you may have inadvertently done but instead, maybe she is stuffy? or swallowed something and it's partially blocking her esophagus? maybe she just has a bug. Don't worry yourselves too much but yes take her to the vet.

Bailey swallows a lot of her food whole. There have been a few times where Bailey has thrown up, especially when she has eaten something she wasn't suppose to. I hope Sierra is alright.

Both of mine also throw up whole pieces. I'm amazed that they look exactly like they did when I fed it to them...

But I hope Sierra is okay. <3 Give her a hug for me. <3

Sorry, it took me so long but my laptop the video card went out and I never made it to the computer room to get on the desk top. Sierra is doing just fine. The vet couldn't see anything wrong at all. I was very happy about that. She is back to herself today. Thanks for caring

So glad Sierra is OK! It is so scary when they start acting different and doing weird things!

Glad that she is ok. If she is a fast eater, you might try and slow her down.

We mixed Murphy's food with water for the first few months to try to teach him to slow down and to help prevent the food from expanding too much once it was in his stomach. Seemed to work well for him.

Not that he ever learned to actually "chew" -- I'd still say it's more of an inhale!
