    puppy pukes in the morning

    My puppy, 4 months, sometimes in the early morning you can hear him like beginning to puke and sometimes he even does puke a little bit. I heard that it was because his stomach was empty and I was just wondering if anyone else heard of this. He has had all his shots and his vet visits have all been good. Personality wise he is te same. I usually will just get up and get him a little bit of food and that seems to fix it for the time being.

    It could very well be due to his stomach being empty. How many times per day to you feed him, and how long are the intervals? My old dog Harley was fed twice a day, morning and evening, and had that happen. I ended up having to feed him three times a day, morning, early afternoon, and late night. I'd try feeding three times a day spaced out (same amount of food as you do now, just split up into three meals), and see if it helps. If it doesn't help, I'd get him checked out to see what else could be the problem.

    I do 3 meals a day but he rarely eats all of his food unless i mix it with canned food but then his farts are horrible and kinda loosens his stool

    Try giving him a buiscuit right before bed, and feeding him immediately after his morning potty break. This keeps my own pup from doing the same thing...

    yea I started doin that or ill leave a lil bit of food that Ill give him during the night. Funny thing is that he is not always eager to eat right away in the morning even though I know he is hungry

    Many dogs gag and vomit yellow, foamy bile due to an empty stomach. I have to feed my male a mini-meal about two hours before bedtime to avoid this (and he is fed twice a day, w/treats twice a day). I usually give him something like spoonfulls of yogurt or cottage cheese, and a crunchy liver cookie (homebaked).
