So Mikko went to the "doggie hilton" for 2 days last week while my hubby and I went out of town. When we got back into our normal routine, he started doing this really weird heaving thing, which I believe is the "reverse sneeze" mentioned in the health forum, so I didn't rush him to the vet even though it kind of freaked us out. I figured it could be due to a number of things, like being in a new environment at the kennel, etc.
I should mention that we are also transitioning Mikko's food since he just recently started refusing to eat his puppy food and was just not eating for a few days right around Christmas... would eat other things, just not his food. So now he's on Canidae ALS ~ I figured if he's almost 9 months old it's a good time to transition from puppy food. He has been eating better but still isn't back to a normal routine, it's like he's finicky all of a sudden.
Anyway, today the reverse sneeze was replaced with a hacking/dry heaving type of thing, almost like he's a cat trying to cough up a hairball. He did this several times throughout the day. At one point in the afternoon he vomited a clear liquid, just looked like water, not the yellowy/foamy bile stuff. I thought it might be due to the fact that he didn't eat most of his breakfast today and might be an empty-stomach thing, but ate his dinner just fine and was still doing the hacking/heaving thing after that. Otherwise, he seems completely fine - normal energy, attention, looks great (just a bit skinny!). I have no idea what's going on... and before we go to the vet I wanted to seek advice from the wise corgi-owners here! Anyone have suggestions?
