I have a 3 year old Yorkie that has being having stomach trouble for the last year.
She keeps eating grass and vomits it up.
Sometime at night she wakes up and vomits and there is a lot of squelching noises coming from her stomach. The vomit is usually yellow in color and frothy.
I have had her at 2 different vets and the latest blood test the vet reckons she has pancreatitis. She has being given medication for this.
Recently i have stating feeding her sheep heart (boiled and mixed with perscripton dry food from the vets) and it seemed to work great.
Now she is back to vomiting again.
Anyone any advice please as im not sure what to do anymore.

I'd get her Bile Acids tested as she could have a liver issue even if her routine blood tests show her liver tests are normal. That was the case with my Tibbe, who was tested for years via regular blood work, CPL Snap test, etc. due to his vomiting and periodically refusing food and only doing a Bile Acids test - which came back abnormally high - showed he had liver dysfunction and further testing was needed.
After a nuclear scintigraphy/abdominal sonogram it was decided he didn't have liver shunt but likely had MVD so he was put on a low-protein diet with easily digestible proteins and he's doing much much much better now.
