    DefaultThrowing up at night

    Bandit has been sleeping with me at night for the past month and he has been doing very good. But, the past few nights he has been throwing up early in the morning. and it looks like it is all grass. He acts totally normal throughout the day, eats all his food, drinks and pottys normally. I dont know why he does this, I hear him coughing for about a min and then he throws up. Is he doing this on purpose? Is this his way of waking me up?

    He hold his bladder all night. He goes out around 10:30 then we go to bed and he goes back out around 7 am. But the past few days he has been going out at like 3 am while I clean up. I dont know what to do.

    He had a vet vist on tuesday and she said he was perfectly fine but he may have a little cold and it would just have to runs it course. Could this be from the cold? Any advise would be great. TIA!

    Sounds to me the reason he is throwing up grass is because he is eating grass??? Also, dogs don't really get colds like we get colds, so no...I personally don't think he is throwing up because he has a dog cold.

    Then why is only at 3 am?
    Wouldn't he throw up more often?
    Is he eating grass to make himself throw up?

    Sounds like empty stomach syndrome. Try giving some treats before going to bed. Might be eating grass because spring grass tastes good. Maybe try and limit the amount of grass he takes in.

    Last night he had 2 treats before bed. How can I stop him from eating grass all the time? My other dog eats grass and never throws it up.

    Keep him away from the grass.

    so this is gross but when he throws up is it foamy, watery and greenish in color? if it is i would feed him his dinner a bit later in the evening or half at dinner time and half before bed to see if it is empty stomach perhaps giving him an upset stomach! good luck, also maybe keep him away from the grass for a day or two and see if that does the trick, maybe he is eating too much of it the little calf!!

    Otis used to do that and it was exactly what Kiddsmom said - empty stomach syndrome and the grass. We did several things.

    First we split his evening meal in half and feed the halves about two hours apart. Then a couple hours after that he has a green bean snack - 1/4 to a 1/3 of a can.

    Next we watch him when he's outside and redirect his attention whenever he starts to eat grass - yell, clap our hands, whatever, but we don't let him get more than a blade in his mouth before we're all over him.

    We still have the fluke throw up every once in a while, but it's few and far between.

    My dogs also occasionally do this - empty stomach, for sure.

    I can always tell because of the nights that it happens. It's usually when we need to feed them extra early, because of a kids game, etc. Sure enough, they have a tough time getting thru the night. I also try to give treats, but it's not enough.

    Molly has empty stomach syndrome & would throw up around 4-5 a.m. I feed her three meals a day & the last one is around 9 p.m. NO more throw up.

    Good luck.
