Throwing up after eating...
Quick question... Storm is about 18 months old now, and she has never once threw up AFTER eating. There will be a couple of times a month she throws up in the morning before eating... but that's it. (This morning being one of them)
Well, I fed her her normal amount of food this morning, and she ate it, went outside, everything normal... then about 30 minutes later, threw up on the floor. It was simply her food, no strange colors or foreign objects... didn't even look like she'd chewed the food, at that. She started to eat it, (sorry, gross, I know) but I stopped her and put her in the other room so I could clean it up.
My question is, what do I do at her next meal? Should I be alarmed?! She drank water after eating, also bounced around with the cats (typical!), she doesn't seem sick in any way.... and of course she's had all of her up to date vaccinations and such. should I be alarmed?! Should I call the vet?
LOL, just opinions and experiences would be nice....

When she vomits in the morning before she eats it it bile and yellowish in color?
If it is, I would suggest giving her snack before bed the night before. Her stomach is just empty..
I never give my Dobes water after they eat.. I wait 1 hour before and 1 hour after they eat.
I do not let them jump around either after meals..
For her next meal.. try to have her slow up while eating.. Maybe you can put a small bowl inside the large dog bowl so it's harder for her to gulp the food down so quickly... Give it a try.. I think she is fine, only needs to slow up.

Thanks for your quick response. Today was the first time she has ever thrown up after eating, but in the mornings, yes, it's exactly what you described. I will try the treat thing before bed... so thanks for that tip.
As for her water, I had no idea not to give her water before/after meals, so I appreciate that too! She eats twice a day, so I'll try what you said.
But if she's acting normal, then really no cause for alarm? It's common if she throws up every once in a while?

If the vomit contains a lot of bile, then clean it up, but otherwise, I usually let my dogs eat up their up-chuck. It is usually because they ate too fast. If they sniff at it and don't want it, then they are sick and/or the food is bad or contains secretions that make it unappetising.
I get this occasional vomiting with dogs that bolt their food.
Cato now gets a nighttime snack because he was vomiting most mornings, just watery or bile - and if he was upset in the tummy, I figured I could help him out with a little snack. He gets about 1/4cup of cold cooked oatmeal with a teaspoon of fat free cottage cheese on top and that's enough to help him thru the night until breakfast.
I just 3/4 fill an old cool whip container with oatmeal then pour on boiling water to cover it, slap on the lid and leave it on the counter until cool enough to put in the fridge. Not much effort, not much space, 2 of mine now get oatmeal each day - they like it with or without the cottage cheese.

I didn't know that! Thanks, yeah, she was eating it... I didn't know... lol, I just figured I'd clean it up, because I didn't know the deal. After I cleaned it up (hardwood floor), she went right back to the spot and licked it. Makes sense, though.
I didn't know about the oatmeal. I'm going to pick up some today, and give it a shot. Thank you!!!

Keep us posted on how she's doing. I've recently been through quite a bit of dog vomiting but it seems my girls just had a bug.
Hope your girl is fine and feels better!
