Hi, My 8 month maltese puppy has thrown up several times through out the day. I have taken him to our vet who took x-rays and stated there is a dark cloud on both sides of the stomach but more on the left and not sure what that is but said there is evidence of pebbles and rocks etc along the digestive tract towards the colon, (which he obviously has been ingesting from our yard). She has given him barium sulfate, cerenia injection and fluids, with instructions of no food or liquids for the night. If he throws up again we need to take him to the emergency room. So far he has not thrown up. We are following up tomorrow with the vet for anther X-ray. He lost 2 ounces. She has also instructed a very strict diet of bland food such as a)potatoes, egg and corn oil, or b) tuna, rice, corn oil c) sweet potato , turkey and corn oil. The vet says she has had positive outcomes with this diet for other clients. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
