When is throwing up bad? (caution: yucky content)

Lucky has thrown up in the past occasionally. It's usually a one or two encounter deal and then he's fine. Oh he's 14 months old now. The content of those throws up are usually swollen undigested versions of whatever he had for dinner, usually kibble which he hasn't historically digested well, but I've been trying to reintroduce. Anyway, yesterday morning he woke up with what can only be described as the "dry heaves", wretching with little or no content. We worried something was stuck (and with his journeys into the stuffing of stuffed toys, the chipping away of Himalayan chews, and the shredding of tissues, it could be a lot of things). But it didn't seem there was a blockage; he ate well and pooped well. This morning however he's wretching again and it's got yellowey content. The first one looked like a well digested carrot dental chew. Now it's more liquid. Is this call the vet time (Sunday a.m. not optimal) or give it another day? He threw up about four times and seems calm and sleeping now. Thanks Forum for your wisdom as usia.

I would call the vet. My Miss Paige has done this from time to time & since they are small dogs they can dehydrate faster than big dogs.
Good luck & keep us posted.

I think a call to the vet is the best idea too! Maybe he has developed a food allergy? I hope he feels better, keep us posted!

I'd call the vet. But I would always rather err on the side of caution.
