Unhappy Duncan vomitted this morning...

He was up like 5 am and was making a weird noise,kind of like when a cat needs to cough up a fur ball.Well after this he vomitted,I guess what was bile since there wasn't any undigested material in it.It was very little,maybe a teaspoonful,but then he went out and went back to sleep and is acting normally.
Should I be concerned?Did he maybe get too many treats or too much food?
THanks a bunch all.
Dot

Awww, poor Duncan. It has happened to Oreo when he has gone a long time without eating. I have found giving him a biscuit helped Oreo until the morning. If Duncan is acting just fine it could have been him feeling icky from having an empty stomach for too long.

Hi Dot,

This same exact thing has happend to Beamer 3 times in the past 5.5 months since we have had him. (I cannot belive its been that long!?!?!)

Weird coughing noise followed by some bile liquid coming up always in the early morning. From what I've seen on this board, its cause by a very empty stomach. Beamer has always been excellent after the vomitting.

I would suggest doing what Helen mentioned and giving Duncan something to eat before bed or late at night. I always brush Kubrick at night so he gets some treats before bed and he doesn't sleep on an empty stomach.

I am going to be baking those wonderful cookies Kara posted and will be giving Oreo one of those nightly. I usually brush him or comb him in the evenings, and like Lina, I give Oreo a nice treat afterwards for being such a good boy.

How often do you feed Beamer and Duncan? I feed Bogart at 7am and 6pm. If he vomits it's usually one of two reasons. He's gulped his food down and drank lots of water right away. He'll vomit and up comes all his food. He will also vomit when he eats grass.

Brando gets feed at 7am, 1pm, 6pm up until he's 6 months.

If you take them out before going to bed maybe they are eating something outside?

Beamer gets fed 2 times a day. Dinner is at 6:30 usually.
He gulps down his raw food like its going out of style! (He has never puked from eating to fast) Although, if you pick him up right after eating, you would think he's going to hurl all over the place, with his stomach making funny noises.. lol

We get up at around 7:30, so thats a good 11 hours with out food. But he does get a couple small treats in the evening to. Only happend 3 times...

Duncan gets fed at 7am and 6pm,and is always getting a treat of some kind during the day.
I though that maybe he chewed on one of pig snouts too much and maybe that caused it.
Once we fed him canned food and he vomitted,and we assumed he ate to much or it was too heavy.
I never would have thought it was because he was hungry.
Good to know.
I absolutely love this place.
Thanks all!!
Dot

dito on the empty stomache, django always throws up when he's got an empty belly. i always try to keep something in his belly throughout the day, he's not a big eater, maybe eats once a day if we are lucky. just make it a habit to give him a little something before bed time just to be on the safe side.

Actually I read somewhere that when feeding raw, dogs will sometimes vomit in the night. It has to do with small pieces of bone that aren't digested and end up getting vomited up.

Where's the place .... ahh here it is... go to number 33).
