    Question

    I have a 6 month old Black Lab mix (not sure what she is mixed with). She inhales her food. It normaly gives her the hick-ups, but there are times when she throws it all back up in solid form. What can I do. She chews everything else. She has toys that she chews on all of the time. Any ideas?

    Okay, you will probably want to double check this before you try it. I know that with horses, you can place rocks (smooth) in with their food. Make sure that they are much too large for them to accidentaly eat. They then have to take the time to pick around them.

    How often do you feed her? Maybe try smaller quantities spread out through the day?

    Right now Im following the recommended 3 times a day. That's from the food bag.

    Maybe try spreading it out a little more. Try feeding maybe like 5-6 times a day (feed the same total amount). But I would try the rocks - I've also heard of people doing that with horses (Good suggestion Dawn!). Make sure to get big enough rocks so your dog doesn't eat them, though.
