Default Throwing Up

When either one of my babies drinks alot of water they throw up. Its not alot and it seems to be clear slime more than anything. (sorry for the visual) It happens when they drink alot, and I find myself making them stop drinking for about 2-3 min.s to give their bellies time to settle then let them drink again. I leave water down all the time, but it seems like they don't drink until they can't take it anymore and want to drink it all in 2 sec.s. Does this happen to anyone else? Im not sure if they are drinking to fast, or too much at once, or waiting so long to drink and then wanting it all at once and their bellies get upset. It doesn't seem to bother them, they just throw it up and move on like nothing happened. What can I do to help them?

Start soaking their kibble in water. Dogs that are fed kibble can actually become dehydrated as the body tries to digest the food. You can combat this by soaking their food in water. Then maybe they wont feel the need to drink so much in one go.

I will def. start doing that. They don't get ALOT of kibble though. I give them home cooked meals too. They do it no matter what they have eaten. (Even in the morning before they eat.) Do you think I should stop the kibble altogether?

I call it "blarping." It is sort of the noise Rocco makes when he does this. He mostly does it after drinking alot and too fast. Sometimes it happens after he runs around. I agree with 2manydogs. I think kibble can be dehydrating so I feed one meal with some moist food mixed in.

mine are raw fed and still do this occasionally I too stop them after a few minutes and make them wait a bit for more that helps stop it but there are times you just cant catch them soon enough and there is the mess we have dog towels and wood floors so clean up is easy enough just a pain and adds to the laundry some days I swear I do more laundry for them than for the household

This happens to Jasper too....my theory is that he drinks a bunch (gulps a bunch), gets air trapped and instead of burping ends up throwing up water and a bit of saliva or bile.
