If your dog vomits after eating, its possible that hes eating too quickly. When dogs gobble up their food, they can ingest big pieces of kibble without properly chewing them first. Fast eating also cases dogs to take in too much air. Both unchewed food and air can cause your dog to throw up after eating too fast.

There are other reasons a dog may eat too fast. As a puppy, he may have had to compete with littermates for food. He learned to eat quickly before his brothers and sisters beat him to it!

Gulping food can cause gas, bloating, and choke so it does need to be addressed. I bought him a bowl with fingers so he could not just grab and gulp his food. This worked until he discovered he could use his foot and flip the bowl over. I bought a different type with a wider base, and he again flipped the bowl.

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), if your dog eats too fast, they could experience digestive problems and vomiting. More seriously, consuming food without chewing is a choking hazard. Another risk is a condition called bloat, which occurs when a dog swallows a lot of air as a result of eating too quickly, says the AKC.

This behavior can cause problems such as vomiting when she eats too fast, food aggression and gastric dilatation, or volvulus, which is also known as bloat. Bloat is a serious condition and can occur when a dog swallows too much air during a meal causing distension of the stomach and predisposing it to twist over on itself.
