I have a female rottie that is 11 years old. She has always been in great health, but recently she seems 2 been having a lot of trouble eating. We have tried several types of dog food 2 see if this was the cause but all had the same results.
She gets a meal in the morning and a meal in the evening usually round 2 med sized cup fulls which is what she’s always ate…But over past few days withing 10-15 mins after she eats she starts 2 vomit, usually not a lot but it’s a little here and there.
We were trying to find out is this something common in older female rotties and if it’s a condition of some kind? If you could please give us some insight on this we would greatly appreciate it… thanks
At 11 years old your Rottweiler is an old lady, and there are all sorts of conditions that can occur in older dogs.
I’m afraid I’m not sure what this vomiting indicates, but something is wrong and you really need to have her examined by your veterinarian as soon as you can.
It could be that she has a physical condition of some sort that is causing this, perhaps age-related or due to an illness that has arisen. I’m not a vet and there’s no way for me to say what is causing this I’m afraid.
I doubt that it’s related to the food she is eating, it’s more likely that it’s due to an esophageal or dietary tract problem, and only a vet can make an accurate diagnosis.
I’m sorry I can’t help more, but I’m sure your vet will be able to figure out what’s causing this and if any treatment is needed he/she will be able to get it started. Best of luck with your dog.
