Rusty was doing that. Just yellow bile. Other than that he seemed fine. I talked to his breeder and she said that was the stomach acids reacting to an empty belly. To give him some kibble or a biscuit to hold him till dinner. Whenever he eats good for has a full belly he doesn't vomit. If he doesn't eat, sure enough he will throw up nothing but liquid yellow bile. Try giving her some of her kibble or a treat between meals??? Maybe that's the problem????? Good Luck!

I'd call the vet! Not sure what it means to a dog, but I'd definitely talk to the doctor; forgive me, there are so many posts about sick dogs, I don't remember now, but has Lola been vomiting prior to this? Maybe bile is all that's left to throw up? IMHO, I'd at least talk to the vet; let us know how it turns out!

I hope there's no doggy flu going around....

We'll keep our fingers and paws crossed for all the sick pups on the board!

had a few dogs that could not make it from dinner to breakfast unless they had a bed time cookie otherwise as maggie mae's mommy said the would trough up bile on an epmty stomach usually in the middle of the night in the middle of the bed.

goes to show if you are going to use adverses make sure they are strong enough to change the behavior. Basset no more about training than many of there owners ;)

I told my new vet that Tummy does that and90% of the time his mouth smells like vomit. Sure a turn off for kids who want to pet him. They asked if he just vomited. Old vet said he had acid reflux. New Vet thinks he just has wild hanging jowls that food that build up there. I don't know I give him doggie breath mints and wipe out the inside with diluted listerine X2 wk. What do U give for dogs with A. R.? Happy to be a slave for Tummy Boy. :(

From Dr Mike's Vet info
"http://www.vetinfo4dogs.com/dvomit.html#Vomiting%20in%20the%20morning%20(mostly)"

" I have researched this question in the past without finding a really good answer
for what causes vomiting in the morning (mostly) in some dogs or for what
to do about it.

The prevailing opinion is that many of the dogs that exhibit this clinical
sign have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or some other condition that
causes a decrease in gastric mobility. This may lead to gastric reflux when
the dog first gets up or when there is excitement, as your vets have
suggested. The gastric reflux causes some dogs to vomit. It is highly
likely that there are a number of causes of this behavior but this theory
does account for a big portion of the affected dogs, I suspect.

When possible, confirming or ruling our a diagnosis of IBD through food
trials, intestinal biopsy, ultrasonagraphy or other means can be helpful in
pointing out a direction for treatment efforts. In many instances, it is
not possible for clients to pursue the diagnostic testing right at the time
of the visit to their vet, though. Because of this, there is a tendency to
try treatment to see if it is possible to aid the pet without having a
specific diagnosis. The most common treatments are histamine (H2) blockers
like cimetidine (Tagamet Rx) or famotidine (Pepcid AC tm), feeding small
meals just before bed and using motility modifying medications like
metoclopramide (Reglan Rx). These things sometimes work to control the
problem and if no futher signs develop it is reasonable to continue
treatment prophylactically without a firm diagnosis, at least in my opinion.

If these things don't help, or are only partially effective, it would be
better to continue to work towards a diagnosis using one or more of the
tests mentioned above.

Good luck with this.

If it were me I would start with the late night snack routine worked for us and many others without having to resort to medication.

I can't tell if you're joking, lvbassets, but Dr. Mike is not a member of this board.

This is probably a good opportunity for another reminder to everyone to be very skeptical of information presented here and elsewhere on the internet.

Ask your vet first! But, from my experience: When Cooter was a puppy, he did this too, first thing in the morning. It was too long from supper to morning that his little belly would get upset. So, I gave him MILKBONE just before bed, and the vomitting stopped. Best of luck to you and hope Lola is all better.

DR. Mike Is a vet However he does not post here what was posted if you click on the link I provided is a copy of an answer he provided someone asking a specific question to his web site. It is the reason a link was provide so you can obtain the entire context of the advice. Which was specifically vomiting Bile in the AM, before meal time.

Nothing about tbe causes of a vomit like smell.


Sorry for the Confusion just cuz Dr. Mike and I have the same first does not mean we are one in the same I would have probably been better served to use the
Code rather than just the Quotation Marks I will make note of that for the future.

Making a diagnoses over the internet even for a trained and certified professional is highly risky. Relying of the advice of a noncertified nonprofessional is dangerious. As Betsy said any thing posted here is informational only and not meant as a diagnoses or advice at bet it provides a starting point for you to have with your own trusted vet.

lvbassets- Oh my!!! You didn't do anything wrong! We all ask questions... but of course we all know to call our vet too. The "Dr. Mike" link is actually a good source at 2:00 am for answers when you can't sleep b/c of worry :) We do have some very knowledgeable people on this forum- but just like I can't diagnose over the phone (I'm a nurse practitioner)- no one here can diagnose over the internet. I have gotten excellent advice here that when I asked my vet about found to be right on target. Please don't feel you have to go away... You would be missed!!- Wendy

lvbasssets, no apology is necessary, and I apologize for upsetting you. :(

Many of the longer health and training posts here consist mainly of material borrowed from elsewhere, although it's not always clearly labeled that way. Of course, it's always best to check out the original site, if possible, to form one's own opinion.

On the subject of medical/veterinary posts--we welcome questions and posts from all members regarding their dogs' personal experiences with health issues, treatments, etc.

However, general medical/veterinary posts (as opposed to personal experiences) from people without a medical or veterinary background tend to reflect their lack of education and judgement in this area, and this is why we post our warning.
