Riley has pretty much always been a vomiter. He just has bilious vomiting syndrom. It is mostly late at night or early morning. An empty stomach tends to bring it on. He gets a biscuit at bed every night and this has seemed to help alot. At 3-4 in the morning, when i hear that hacking sound i jump out of bed to get him out (or at least make it off the carpet)! Nothing wakes me up from a dead sleep faster then that! Just one of our many health issues.

Not my poodles no. My other dog Coco was up until a few months ago we changed his food. I also allowed him to eat a small dinner around 7pm because I believe it came on from the empty tummy too.

OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH yeah Mister is a vomiter!!!!

If he doesnt eat breakfast because he's too excited or doesnt feel like it and then i take him to work or leave him in his kennel he will puke up yellow bile a few hours later because his tummy is so empty.

Its the funniest thing even too because its like clockwork! So i fix it by always making sure he eats his food, he gets locked in his kennel with him food so he can focus enough to finish it lol.

My sister thinks its the craziest thing. She used to work at a vet clinic and had never heard of this. I learned what it was all about working at a dog daycare and boarding place. If a dog didnt eat breakfast because it was in a new place or whatever you better believe it would be puking around lunchtime. So we would take em in the kitchen and give them turkey jerky (the dog kind) and they were more than happy to eat that lol.

I have had cats for the past 20 years, so I'm well familiar with that 3am hacking sound (and jumping up out of bed to move them off the carpet, etc.- LOL).

My poodle Teddy has only thrown up twice. The first time was after he had eaten too many freeze-dried chicken treats and then went for a ride in the car. What came up was pretty much what had gone in.

The second time was this morning, when he threw up what looked like a hairball. I'm not kidding. I've seen enough of these to know very well what they look like.

I'm not sure if he ate something he found in the yard last night on our last walk of the night, or if he's ingested enough of the cat's hair to make an actual hairball. He was kind of quiet and not interested in food until late this afternoon, and then boy, did he perk up. Like someone flipped on a switch or something.

I had an English mastiff that did this and we found if we sprinkled brewers years on his food we did not have problems.
I would buy it at the bulk food store as the dog stuff is so expencive but for 2 bucks got a big bag at bulk food.
Just a tablespoon sprinkled on and we didn't have any problems.
Worked like a charm I read it somewhere and tried it. Instant cure
Worst thing to come of it the fleas won't like your dog as that is also a natural flee deterent

Our standards vomit if they have just eaten and then go and sneak to their water bowl and guzzle to much water b-4 we realize what they are doing and can divert their attention else where, instead of drinking. If they do this they will pretty much vomit up just about everything that they have just eaten, and then because now their tummy is pretty much empty, they want to eat again immediately. They will also vomit up water if they have just gotten a pretty good size drink and then decide it is now play time and start running all over playing chase and etc., which we too try to stop if we know that they have just gotten a drink. This only pertains to our standards, our toys are not effected this way.

None of my (or spoospirit's) poodles do this, but my Doberman has done it since I got her as a pup and she is 8 yrs. old. Normally in the morning, and it is always yellow bile, but sometimes in the evening also. She used to do it frequently when younger (she was a fussy eater then, not sure if that has anything to do with it) but seldom now (she is a chow hound now!) I feed all my dogs twice a day.. morning and night. Funny thing is, Grace is a really fussy eater.. she LOVES raw but won't always eat her kibble so goes hungry sometimes, but has never thrown up bile. And Jade (my dobie) still very occasionally throws up bile even though she eats both her meals every day. Doesn't seem to really correlate to not eating *shrug*

Desmond does that a lot. He doesn't do it every day, but lots of days when I come home from school he gets really excited and playful. He drinks a lot I guess once he's let out of his crate, and then runs around on an empty tummy and vomits up water/bile. It's always really sudden, like he's fetching a ball and will just randomly spit up a little. He just stops and looks at it all sad like and looks at me like "Oh gosh I am so embarrassed I can't believe that just happened". :lol:
He's never done it at night unless he's sick though. It's just in the mornings or afternoons when he runs around on an empty stomach.

Rofl, my cat did the hacking thing a couple days ago. I stopped what I was doing to grab him to try and get him on tile, but he ran away from me, stopped for a second, threw up on the carpet, I tried to grab him, he ran off again, threw up again.. and this repeated until he dumped the rest of his stomach a couple inches away from the kitchen tile. Fun times. But it's not daily, so I don't feel all your pain!

On occasions when Paris hasn't eaten her dinner at all, she will, at work the next day, give me the 'ears & tail down, slightly worried & upset look' by the door at work, I'll let her out and she'll go straight over to eat some grass and puke some bile. It only ever happens on an empty stomach, and that's not all that often; I can usually get her to eat *something*
