My dog puked a yellow foamy liquid, what can I do?

Our team is formed for veterinarians, ethologists, and animal health content experts.

The fact that your buddy vomits is never a good sign. If you have discovered your partner’s vomit in his bed or where he usually plays at home, then you have to study the color very carefully. If the vomit is white, you should contact a veterinary clinic as soon as possible, as it is a symptom of a serious illness. However, yellow vomit, especially in the morning, can be due to many other factors.

Why does my doggie throw up yellow vomit every morning?

One of the reasons your doggie is vomiting a foamy yellow liquid in the morning is because his stomach is empty. Make sure that the time of vomiting is always in the morning, to be sure this is the case.

The solution to this problem is quite simple: feed your buddy a little bit before he goes to sleep. This will help settle his stomach and make the vomiting problem go away in a few days. If the problem persists, be sure to post a query to one of our veterinarians.

Feed them light, nutritious food just before bedtime to solve the problem of yellow vomiting

This doesn't mean your hairy friend has to eat twice as much. Divide his daily portion into two parts and remember to always feed him before 7 pm. When your partner only eats once a day (usually at breakfast or lunchtime), he ends up with an empty stomach for the rest of the day, causing bile vomiting syndrome.

If your doggie has weight problems, in addition to exercising regularly, another solution is to divide the food into three or four small portions throughout the day. Reward walkies by giving him a small portion of food once he has rested to avoid making him feel sick. The problem should go away!

My DOG STOMACH is making NOISES and GROWS loudly

If your dog's guts make lot of very strong noises, if he has diarrhea, he does not want to eat or the bowel sounds are very strong, we tell you what to do in the next video. In Barkibu we have online veterinarians which are specialists in nutrition.

Change your buddy’s diet

As well as changing how often you feed him, it's a good idea to change your buddy’s diet. Always keep in mind that food for humans is not ideal for your furry friend. If you don't want him to get sick, avoid giving leftovers that contain a lot of fat, sauce, sugar or chocolate.

Doggie food, both dry and wet, is ideal for restoring your buddy’s stomach. There is a wide variety of dog food on the market, including those with less fat if your partner is overweight, those specifically made for different breeds, and even some with special ingredients. There are dogs that can’t tolerate turkey or chicken and those who only like salmon in their food, though all these ingredients are very good for their fur.

If your partner has gastritis, as well as taking him to a veterinarian, you can prepare some white rice with boneless chicken breast because it takes longer to digest and is really nutritious.

Other reasons why your dog’s vomit is yellow

If your fluffy pal is over nine years old then there may be other reasons why he is vomiting a yellow foamy liquid. Older dogs are at risk of serious medical conditions, which means that you should get him checked out to be on the safe side.

A good veterinarian can determine if he has a stomach ulcer, an inflamed intestine, a giardia infection or some other problem. The veterinarian will carry out the blood tests, endoscopies or ultrasound tests necessary to determine if something is wrong with your buddy.

I've changed my friend's diet and it he is still poorly. What do I do now?

If, after changing the type of food and his feeding schedule, your pal still vomits, or if he is over ten years old, then don't hesitate to take him to a vet. Don't give him any medicine that hasn't been prescribed by a specialist because it could make the situation worse. And never, under any circumstances, give your pal human medication: it’s very dangerous for your four-legged friend.

There are several types of medicine that a professional can give your pal: from a stomach protector to protect his stomach from acids, to a prokinetic that helps his stomach muscles get stronger. The veterinarian will do the necessary tests to find out what's wrong with your buddy and find the right treatment.

In short, if your pooch continues to vomit yellow foamy liquid even if you have changed his diet and eating schedule, you should contact a specialist. Send a query to our online veterinarians to make sure nothing serious is going on.
