Just wanted to let you know that a change in diet has stopped my dog doing this. He is now having raw beef/liver mince instead of the raw turkey mince. I can only assume he built up an intolerance to the turkey. Am going to give him more of a variety of raw meat now (he was prone to putting on weight for a while hence the lean turkey mince but this seems to be less of a problem now). Hope this helps.View Thread
I have just found this post after my dog Ferris (4 year old Lurcher) has done this for the second time in 2 weeks. Gulping of air, furious licking and desperate to get out. Then he eats as much grass as possible until he throws up. The first time it happened he settled and went to sleep with no problems. Tonight he has slept for about 10 minutes after throwing up but has now gone back to the garden to eat grass again. Will have to see whether he has anything else left to throw up.... Bit dismayed to see there may not be any answer for this as he is very distressed when it is going on. He is on a raw turkey mince diet with vegetables, plus sardines twice a week. He is on turkey mince as he seems to be put too much weight when I try to feed him anything else. I will get in some slippery elm and add it to his food every day to see if this manages to stop it. I had an old Lurcher with IBD that took slippery elm amongst other supplements for many years which helped him so am hopeful that if it is something gastric this might help settle his stomach. Will keep an eye on any developments on this thread.View Thread
