throwing up bile?

This doesn't happen all the time, but at least a few times a month Henry vomits some foaming greenish/yellow stuff that I THINK is bile. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it something to panic about? It usually happens in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning. Afterwards he is back to his happy hungry self. Thanks for any suggestions.

Abby never has thrown up so far but we had a Peke-a-poo that did it alot! It is usually when they have an empty stomach. She used to do it in the middle of the night or early morning, too, so I guess that would make sense. Don't know why some do it and others not, though!

My old dog used to do that. It was because he had an empty tummy. Usually, it would happen when we slept in and failed to eat him at 6:30 am exactly. Poor guy.

A small snack in the late evening would help.

TTFN,
Pam

Kipling does this now and again. I asked the vet and he commented that he's likely got a slightly sensitive tummy and that he may have eaten something that didn't agree (more than likely this would be something he picks up in the yard)...he asked us to monitor how often and with us it's also just once or twice in a month and usually overnight. He did not seem worried. I even took in his crate blanket so he could see what was being thrown up and he confirmed that is was indeed bile-type 'stuff'...yep...we are not concerned.

Yeah, Yogi has done this on occasion too. First thing in the morning, before she eats anything. And Pam...it's best that you not share how you eat dog at 6:30 every morning! People around here will frown on that! HeeHee Ha Ha Ha Hee Hee!!!!

Too funny! I had to go back and re-read as I totally missed it first time! Pam, you had better not let Dave hear about this. He threatened to report me to (cant remember the initials - Havanese police) because I didn't have enough fancy toys/equipment for Augie. And that is not nearly as bad as eating your dog!



Augie has done the throwing up of bile thing too - not often - but when he was younger, and it was always early in the a.m. He hasn't done it in a very long time though. I do have to watch him outside. He wants to put his snout in the ground and pull up grass and eat it. And then he will throw that up later. Not sure what that is about.

thank you all! I have stopped worrying (for now) and will start feeding him a snack at night. If only all ailments could be cured by simply eating a tasty treat before bed! I would be the healthiest person on earth!!!!

Happens to Whimsy once in a while if her tummy is empty.
