Dog vomit specs of blood weekly and in stool

Hi we have an ongoing problem with our 8yr old Boston Terrier.

A couple months ago he started this. It happens once a week or so. He wakes up in the morning and his stomach is making these rumbling sounds but he won't eat. Later in the day he vomits. It's a clear liquid spit with specs of blood. Then later in the day he might have soft stools with blood as well. He eventually will eat by night and the next day he's fine.
He may be a little more quieter some days as well.

There is no pattern to this. Occurring randomly. He had blood work which was normal. Treated with metronidazole for almost a month and on gastro food. He also takes a Pepcid daily and on sick days can have sulcrate.

We are stumped. If continues may have to redo blood work and ultrasound. He has had one problem after another. Eye surgery due to an ulcer, suspicious growth removed (was benign Tumor), teeth cleaned and discovered rotten tooth....soo much has been going on.

Just wondering if anyone had been through this!

Yes with my hound. It took us a year to figure it out. My vet also prescribed pepsid . I did not think that it was a good idea. I looked for other ways. It turned out my dog was meat intolerant. I cooked a veggie meal for about 3 months then started adding turkey to his food a little at a time to see if he could tolerate it. It was the only meat he had not ever had. If we had the same result I would have chosen to keep him off meat for good. He had all the same symptoms you mentioned. Gurgling stomach also pinging noise, eating grass, throwing up bile ,refusing to eat. You could start by switching to a single protein food that he has never had before and see if it helps. We use Zignature turkey or Go sensitive and shine turkey. I also recommend either plain yogurt or kefir to help heal the stomach I like the kefir better because it has more good bacteria in it then yogurt. A couple of tablespoons per meal. When choosing a single protein food make sure the fat is not from another meat source and that there is not fish oil hiding in the last few ingredients. It is very important that there is only one meat source in the food. No treats unless they are the same ingredients as the food. You need to feed for 8 weeks to see if it works.

Thanks soo much for your response. It's so frustrating an I'm always thinking the worst. Our vet has him on a prescription vegetarian diet for the past month to see if will help. No meat at all and vegetarian treats. I also give him plain yogurt with each meal.

I don't want to keep him on vegetarian forever. So I will look for a meat he hasn't tried in awhile. Ill do the vegetarian for a bit longer to see if helping. I really hope his problem is something like this and not life threatening.

It's the specs of blood and also having diarrhea same day.

Thanks again for the response ! Very helpful

Sounds like stomach ulcer, definitely.

What was he eating when this happened? I sit a Shih-Tzu who, until recently, couldn't keep a meal down without Pepsid. She was on Science Diet for urinary health. She wound up having a really bad week a while ago during which the owners brought her to a vet. They suspected an allergy and switched her to raw. Problems were gone in a couple of days. I think that the limitation of ingredients made a huge difference with her.

He was treated for a stomach ulcer and still continuing. A lot of it happened a couple months ago after taking metacam for a prolonged time (couple months) due to eye surgery from eye ulcer. We quit metacam months ago and still happening.

He was eating now dog food which he has been forever. Then he was switched to a gastrointestinal food and now vegetarian. There has been nothing new...but I'm really curious to see if the vegetarian will work. Is only been a month and was told could take 8 weeks doe results,

I had my hound on natural balance veggie for a few weeks before i started home cooking. The veggie dog kibble did not seem to help but with in a week of home cooking all the symptoms deciphered. Don't worry about the veggie food the dog kibble has the vitamins and minerals he needs to stay healthy. There are only 2 things missing in a veggie diet and the dog food companies add it.
I never could figure out why the home cooking worked over the veggie kibble because the ingredients were very similar. I guess it was the enzymes in the fresh food. The thing you have to worry about is that the bile can burn the esophagus if they have it for to long.

hello! I'm dealing with what seems like EXACTLY the same thing with our 11 month old pup. Just curious what the outcome was with your dog...were things ever resolved?

@Jill00, this is a very old thread and unlikely that you will get a response. If you are seeing blood in your dogs stool and vomit you should probably consult with a vet.

Thanks for the comment. I have been seeing our vet for the past month and a half. They are stumped. Similar to the original poster. I was curious of her outcome so posted here in case she still monitors her account. Also sent her a private message as well. Figured it couldn't hurt to try.
