Question by chris a: Why does My English Bulldog drink water then burp it back out?
My English Bulldog, Bentley is 8 months old. When he drinks water he seems to always maybe burp then throw back up the water. What comes out is a BUNCH of saliva and some undigested food. Is he trying to drink to much way to fast? Or is it because his nose is pushed in and maybe he is sucking in a lot of air while he drinks then burpping everything out? Is his body not getting enough water?

My dog does the exact same thing. Not everytime he drinks, just when he’s excited (me coming home seems to set him off). He tends to drink really fast, so I always let him take a few slops, then tell him to back off for awhile. He’s a good listener. We nicknamed him “12 tongues” because it sounds like he has 12 tongues slurping up water!
But we call them “jellyfish” because that’s what they look like. Disgusting slimy, watery burp ups.
So it’s probably normal. Try putting ice cubes in his water bowl to slow him down a bit.
