Reply To: Food bloat and emesis induction

Scott Walker

I didn’t make this particular patient sick as they were handed over to me having already been admitted and on ivft for several hours.

I have previously made a puppy vomit after gorging on food. It only brought up about 8 pieces of kibble but I did wonder if it resulted in faster digestion of the remaining food. My theory being that the stomach could then contract more efficiently as it wasn’t stretched to it’s max, whilst also allowing for remaining food to swell.
