Several Bassets on this forum do this. Our boy, Bogie, now 2 did this when we got him as a ten month old. He would wake up about 5 AM and throw up yellow bile. The vet told us it was the "empty tummy syndrome" and to feed him a portion of his daily food right before bed time. So we give Bogie a 1/2 cup of dry food about 10 PM just before bed time. The vomiting stopped and he sleeps til 6 or 7AM now. Some forum members just feed several dog cookies for a night time snack and that seems to work for them.
Good luck with Softie!!
Mine have never thrown up, but Gibbs occasionally will wake me up in the middle of the night, well way early in the morning, with his tummy growling very loudly. I feed him a little bit of food and then he is fine. I have now started giving him only a portion of his "breakfast" and increased the amount of "dinner" he gets and it seems to be working so far...we'll see.
THANKS EVERYBODY...THIS MIGHT BE IT!!! WILL TRY AND FEED HIM A LITTLE BEFORE BEDTIME!!!
The vet said he is a bit underweight although we feed him the correct amount of Hills!! so he's on a fattening up diet!!!
I know this thread is old but can I tell you how relieved I am!?
I could not for the life of me figure out why Whiskey was fine with eating and drinking all day long and then suddenly in the middle of the night/early morning, she would throw up. I am going to try and give her a little bit before bed tonight and see if that helps.
