Default Vomit

Our little girl who just over 3 months old now has thrown up a few times over the last two weeks. The three times its happened has always been during or right after she eats her breakfast. It doesnt seem to phase her because she either goes right back to eating or playing. What I have noticed is that it looks as if she didnt chew her food very well at all. So I am not sure if maybe she is just eating to fast or not and that is causing it. Any ideas?

You may be right. She might be eating it too fast...if that's the case, when Barney would do this I put his kibble in a muffin pan which slowed him down. You can also put a fairly big rock in the bowl so they have to eat around it or you can spread the kibble on a rug or cookie sheet....if this works, then you can buy a slow eater bowl....they make them to slow the dogs down...

it works pretty well
Amazon.com: Skid Stop Slow Feed Bowl - Medium (Color May Vary): Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Skid Stop Slow Feed Bowl - Medium (Color May Vary): Pet Supplies

I don't have to use it anymore because I kinda outgrew that.
the water though... different story...
I have a special floaty ball thing in my water bowl to keep me from drinking too fast.
I always drink water too fast and then puke

I rock would be a bad idea since she likes to chew on them. This is another problem we have with her potty training out in the yard. She will find rocks and begin to chew away. I dont know how many Ive had to fish out of her mouth.

This was another question I was gonna ask about. It seems like if I put down a gallon of water she will drink it all. She acts like she is always thirsty no matter how much water she has had. We cant keep water down for her because she will just drink it all, no matter how much, bloat up, and than pee everywhere. Is it normal for them to do this? I feel bad about not having fresh water for her all the time but if it was up to her so would just drink all day. I tried the other day with a big bowl we have that holds almost 32oz and she drank the entire thing it about 3 minutes!

If she can from a place that did not keep water available all the time or they didn't get enough food to fill them up they are more likely to over eat and over drink.Only give her about a cup or two at a time ,past 6 in the evening give her some ice cubes and at night she doesn't need anything. I don't know how rocky your yard is but if you can remove them it would be better since bassets can be rock eaters which usually means obstruction.

When Maggie was a pup she would eat way to fast. We put a large rock and I mean it was probably 6 to 8 inches in diameter and weighed a couple pounds in her bowl and it slowed her way down until she outgrew eating fast. Also if New Mexico is like Nevada I would never not have water available. Here we have many days of temps over 120 degrees and the lows at night still over 100 degrees.

to piggy back on what bubbad posted:

we keep water available always for the girls but not a full bowl at a time. yes

about the rocks, ours had an obstruction. also swallowed dropped coins, etc.

what is the consistency of the emesis (vomit)...does food come back up or light

and foamy? Is there play or running going on right after eating??

She isnt left outside be herself yet but I am planning on getting the rest of the gravel out of our yard. When we bought our house, the whole yard was gravel and I have been removing it since than and plan on planting grass this spring.

It is impossible for us to keep water down because she will drink it as soon as its put down.

For the vomit, Ive noticed thats its kind of foamy but it looks just like her food but kind of slimy. As for the running/playing, its seems like she is always on the fly but she is calm while eating.

I don't want to freak you out, but my Abby was a "heavy drinker" Turned out she had renal issues. Her pee can be a sign. Is it clear and watery or is it yellow and consentrated? Abby's pee rarely smelled like urine and seemed to have kinda' an "oily" consistence. If this is her case, I would have it tested. Also had issues with her vomiting from drinking to much and too fast.
