    So far so good! He hasn't vomited since the dry heave a few days ago and all else is still normal. Last night I fell asleep early (ie passed out) and didn't give him a snack and he still woke up fine.

    Thanks for checking! I'm still going to keep a close eye on him for the next few days especially in the morning.

    All 3 of my dogs have been on Fromm Chicken a la veg for 1 1/2 years. One by one, they started having issues with their stomach (extremely loud gurgling in their intestines ) and some vomiting of bile...even with increased feedings. Talked to vet because episodes were increasing. He said sometimes you need to change foods every so often. I thought this was a little odd but..I changed to Fromm Duck and sweet potatoe and all 3 dogs have not had any problems at all since the change.

    Well all, I took curly to the vet because he vomited again this morning and this time there was some blood in it (all bright yellow bile specks of blood). The vet also suspects that it's an empty stomach and the specks of blood is just irritation.

    She ruled out obstruction because he isn't displaying any other symptoms. She said that even if it was a partial that his vomiting wouldn't be isolated to the morning only.

    So it's official. 68 lb Curly has fat dog problems.

    BTW I'm still at the vet and I've opted to have an X-ray done just in case.

    X-rays came back clear, so no obstruction. The vet said it was most likely Bilious vomiting syndrome, like most guesses were. She said that my feeding schedule if fine but thinks curly might digest his food fast so she wants me to wake him up around midnight and give him a late night treat

    I swear Curly paid off the vet and made her say give him more treats!

    But another bit of good news is that the vet said that Curly looks like he is in good shape and at a good weight (she own an EB)

    Keep an eye on the vomiting and the quantity of poo.

    Baxter had a huge obstruction and it not only didn't show on the X ray, it didn't show on the ultrasound either.

    Turned out to be a rubber/spongy material that is invisible to both technologies, but was the size of a golf ball.

    Drooling mouth, inability to poo, and continued vomiting I would take him to the local pet ER ... not to your vet ... and let them do the check.

    3 vets had no clue on this end. As always, ER docs are kings of knowledge/competence. He called it right away, despite normal ultrasound, and suggested exploratory surgery.

    @baxtertiberius I totally remember your ordeal! Which was in the back of my mind when I took him to the vet (and also why I opted for an X-ray)

    Curly is otherwise behaving normal except for the morning bile only vomit which never has any food. It's only once and afterwards he just goes back to sleep. It usually happens between 6 and 7 in the morning, like clock work. Which also points things more in the direction of Bilious Vomiting Syndrome, according to the vet.

    His poops have been fine, good amount, not too loose not to hard. And he is eating his normal amount of food too (if not more when he steals from the other two). He has plenty of energy too. Yesterday was bath day and he was overly playful (as usual) afterwards.

    Fortunately my home office allows me to monitor the dogs during all their waking (and sleeping) hours so I really don't think he got into anything unusual. But of course curly might be a ninja and I just don't know. I'll keep a watch on him regardless
