|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My husky is four and half months old and he has had random bouts of vomiting. I would feed him his Blue Buffalo food and a couple hours later he would vomit it up. Whole bits of doggy food, just inflated from moisture of course. He doesn't chew his food but tends to just inhale it practically.
It just doesn't happen every time I feed him. We weren't playing or anything either. He would just be chilling and wake up "coughing" up the food. So, yeah the vomit is pretty solid, I can pick it up easily enough. I also noticed there was his own hair in the vomit. Could he be sick? Coccidia?

Have you tried changing the food to see whether or not it is the food itself causing this reaction?
Coccidia usually just gives them the runs as far as I know. My Husky had it when he was young.

Maybe he's eating it too quick? I had to buy slow feeders for my 3. No picky huskies in my house lol

Did you just get your dog? If so then he might just be him adjusting to a new home. If not then it could be that he's eating his food too fast, I would try getting him a slow-feeder or hand feeding his meals and see if that helps. I believe other signs that he might be eating too fast are if he burps after eating or gets the hiccups. I would also advise calling your vet, just to see if they think that it's anything to worry about.
Yukon used to throw up a bit; generally it happened either when he was hungry, motion sick, or when he just got vaccinated. (Sometimes it was an unpleasant mix of the three...) The only time he would actually throw up after eating was when he was on his dewormer, and that didn't happen very often at all iirc...
Edit: Ninja'd on the slow-feeder option.
