Hey everyone first time reaching out figured maybe this has happened to someone else’s boxer. Last month Roxy (3) started throwing up at 3 am 2x a week . Each time she threw up it was her food which she had been fed at 5pm/6. I finally took her to the doctor had blood work done and fecal exam. It all came back with nothing but precautionary they sent me a dewormer and I had to give her a bland diet. During the bland diet she did not throw up once. This is the first week back to her normal food that she has been eating since she was a puppy. I thought I was in the clear but tonight I was just woken up by the sound of her throwing up. I’m wondering if it’s acid reflux I had a boxer before that I use to have to give otc to for it. Super Bowl Sunday she was eating carrots and cucumbers and her food and did not throw up. Do I attempt a slow feeder and feed her an antacid every night. Looking for any insight from other boxer owners thank you!!

Maybe she is reacting to her food maybe she has developed a sensitivity to one of the proteins in her food? Sometimes chicken can be a cause of food reactions. I switched my male to a turkey protein in the dog food and it helped him. What other things is she eating ? Does she eat her food quickly? A slow feeder would help her as its not good to gulp down the food. I saw you said she was on a bland diet and it worked what was the protein in that? Was it beef or some other?

It was boiled chicken, rice, cottage cheese, pasta. It’s just weird she doesn’t do the throw up every time I feed her in the morning she doesn’t throw up in the middle of the day. It’s also not consistent in the middle of the night either

So not the chicken then, maybe she does have reflux does the Vet have any recommendations? Some people use probiotics that seem to help their dogs I have used Fortaflora from Purina just sprinkle it on the food I can't remember how many times a day there are other ones out there and maybe someone else will have a suggestion.

So was it full kibble at 3:00 am? If it is, I would think that should be digested in 10 hours. That seems like a possible digestive issue.
