Dog Vomiting in the Morning

Question:
Sorry if this has been posted, I can't find it.

Real quick, I know that this isn't a huge deal because a friend of mine in the building has the same thing with her pup and she says it's nothing. However, I'd like to know WHAT it is just so I know.

Lil Nacho is acting perfectly fine. Eating, active, pooping, peeing. Just today and also about a week and a half ago, he vomited in the morning. It was sort of yellow and gooey. Poor little fella. He's fine otherwise. what causes this? is it bad? and can I prevent it??

Thanks
Justin

Answer:
I had the same problem with Jack last summer / fall- throwing up yellow liquid - almost always either during the night or just after he woke up in the morning. We thought that it was associated with him eating grass (he likes the taste of it), the vet thought either the grass or very hungry causing an upset stomach. We uped his food a little bit (also altered his supper schedule a bit) and kept him away from serious grass eating and the problem went away. Spend a day or so recording what and when he is eating as well as when the vomitting occurs then contact your vet (alternatively, if you know what and when already, make a vet trip with the info in hand).

Answer:
The yellow is bile, sometimes it is as result of empty tummy syndrome and too much acid forming in the stomach, a piece or bread or biscuit at bedtime can help prevent. Though if it continues despite a bedtime feeding a vet visit should be considered. Sometimes it can occur due to meds or foods that do not agree.

Answer:
Great, at least I know it's not serious. He's like me, he enjoys sleeping late, so I think that maybe he is just waking up hungry. But he's fed the same time every day, so I'll have to just do what you said and record when and where. He likes to eat grass too, but it's been raining a lot, so we haven't been to the park in a few days.

This has only happened 3 times in the last 4 months, so it's not a regular thing. Just checking up. Thanks everybody!

Answer:
My two dogs used to do this pretty regularly. Once we started feeding 3 times a day (1 cup am, 1 cup pm, 1/2 cup before bed) they stopped vomiting bile in the morning.
I agree with OntarioGrey through, if a bed time snack doesn't resolve the problem, a vet visit is probably in order.

Answer:
I feed them a 1/3 of their daily food at night right before I go to sleep. Haven't had any morning sickness in at least two years. Boo used to be sick every day (bile in the early morning) and that was a chicken intolerance.

Answer:
My vet had a different explanation of the empty tummy syndrom... She called it 'sleeping in'. Charley would do the same thing every week-end if I slept in more than three hours past his regular breakfast time. I found that so long as he ate before 8:30 he'd be ok. He outgrew it though and can sleep until noon now

Answer:
Oh, Bilbo did just like this Weekends mornings. He stoped vomiting right after I changed his food.

Is he only fed once a day? That could be the problem, try feeding him a little bit before bed, instead of all at once in the morning. I have the same problem with my GSD, she has to eat at least twice a day, and sometimes thats not even enough!

Answer:
My guy eats twice, breakfast when i get up and dinner, usually around 18:00.

Answer:
My two boys used to vomit small amounts of bile when I fed the Nutro, both the chicken and the lamb formulas. Since I switched dog foods they have never done it again. I've always fed them around 7:00 to 8:00 am and around 5:30 to 6:30 pm.

What are you feeding your dog?

Answer:
my dog does this too from time to time. Usually on the weekend when I'm sleeping in !

Well then, in your case, it's the "empty stomach syndrome".
