Daisy has done this twice now in the past couple of months. It always happens early in the morning. She'll wake me up making that doggy heaving sound. Luckily I have been able to get her into the bathtub both times before she threw up. The first time she threw up once, but this morning it was twice. It seems to be nothing more than stomach bile (TMI sorry). Any idea why this is happening? She seems to be fine otherwise, eating normally, peeing, and pooping normally.

I would ask your vet about this as it is clearly not a case of
motion-sickness or feeding a pup a new food item. Btw, how young
is Daisy? And does she have a dog door to the outside when you
sleep? The "leavings" would suggest something that was nearly
complete in digestion, but if she ate bugs or small rodents...
that might explain the vomiting. If you go to the vet, take a
small sample of the vomit for them to examine. (As "food-
oriented") as beags tend to be, it is very rare for them to part
with food once it has been eaten!

I read that morning sickness in dogs was down to an irritated stomach because it's too empty and to try giving a biscuit to the dog as late as possible the night before.

It may be "morning sickness" if your beag is female & pregnant...
but none of our current "boy's" have "vomited since they became
adults"!!!

Thanks all! I'll try giving her a biscuit or something just before bed. Now that I think about it, she has only done it when she didn't eat well the night before. Sometimes she inhales her dinner and sometimes it's her lunch. Yesterday she ate all of her lunch and just picked at dinner so her stomach may have just been too empty.

Btw, you might encounter a loss of appetite problem as "unlikely
as it may sound" with a beag when they enter advanced age like
Goober! But, he needs to be fed 3 times a day when possble or
given a high calorie meal twice daily. Last night Goob's enjoyed
some bacon with some chili& beans with his kibble but he was too "stuffed" to eat his "T/D" treats or even a dog biscuit! But
at least he is back to an acceptable weight for his age now that
he will turn 16 next saturday!!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/thumbup2.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yay.gif

Josie used vomit stomach bile in the mornings when she hadn't eaten. She is a terrible eater so to get her on a schedule, we started giving her some canned food with her regular dry to encourage her to eat. It helped and she hasn't vomitted in a really long time. However, she has gained quite a bit of weight, so now I've taken the canned food away. Hopefully she won't go back to the morning vommiting...

Uep, we had the same problem with Duke. He isn't a typical beagle with his food (totally a beagle when it comes to human food and treats, though. He would often nibble at his food and not eat the evening meal and that's when he'd have what I termed spit up the next morning.

Once we made sure he ate in the evenings (often by adding low fat chicken broth to his food), the problem was gone.

I hope this thread helps Daisy!

But...I had no idea about the empty stomach thing being problematic. I will start giving Kioko a little snack before bed. She has thrown up a few times...all in the morning...and all when her tummy was empty (cause I've never had to clean up a mess when she does it...just liquid or bile).

I had no idea about this. So glad I read this thread.
