ASSUMING that the temps are ok, and they are not stressed or overhandled, they likely have endoparasites. I personally have battled this problem this year with my Western. During a stressful move, he spontaneously developed parasite problems and started regurgitating. You will need a visit to the vet to determine the parasite at the root of the problem, as this will determine the medicine needed. I used panacure at the subscribed dosage and frequency and it did not help, I had to aggressively treat with repeated daily doses. My hog lost a lot of weight because of this, but is currently eating frog scented fuzzies (luckily I have gray treefrogs as pets anyway). If they are WC or have been in contact with any WC herp, then this increases the likelihood of parasites. I really wish I knew the mechanism behind parasites and regurgitation!
