    Thanks for the help. We are trying twice a day feedings to see if that helps.

If so how do I treat it?
    Deanna, You'll love it here. I Like the name Otis, somehow it just seems to fit their faces lol. I've had the same problem with my boys, I feed them early in the morning, and late in the evening, sometimes being 12 hrs apart. Rocky would throw up, but not a large amount, anywhere from the size of a quarter, to 3" in diameter. The vomit is a yellowish liquid, and slimy. We've had this discussion before, and what some of the members did was to feed their Baby's a plane Rice cake in the evening, and not allow them to go to bed hungry, as they would surely vomit the next morning in getting their food. I use snacks and training with my boys at night, and during the day, they get fruit and such between their kibbles. It helps tremendously, and I hope you give this a try with Otis and hopefully you'll have as good a luck as we who've had this problem have had. Good Luck!!

    Don't mean to hijack your thread but my Petunia did the same just this morning...she woke up around 6 am and threw up twice (once was nothing) in succession on the bed. It was yellowish and frothy. I already feed her twice daily...should I switch to 3X? She seems to want something to eat around 8:30 ish...

    She did NOT want to eat her breakfast this am which is unusual for her.

    HI I have a 3 year old Jr. Every so often he will do the same! It's mostly in the middle of night. I went to vet and they said it had to do with fluid in stomach and when he lays down to sleep it coming back up almost like Acid Reflux! I tried giving him a small piece of bread to absorb anything in belly and that seemed to help! Also yes he tends to lick and lick and gag himself. Hope this was helpful

    Ok, now I am a believer. I was skeptical at first that Otis's throwing up problem was because his tummy was empty, but now I think that just might be the problem. Yesterday we were gone for most of the day Christmas Shopping. I couldn't get Otis to eat anything before we left which is not unusual in the morning (he normally eats around lunch). My mom came to let him out around midday and she said he was so excited that it was her coming for a visit that she couldn't get him to slow down long enough to eat. By the time we got home he was starving. He didn't eat lots of food, but it wasn't long after he ate that he was throwing up. He threw up several times during the night and this morning you can just tell he is not himself. However, he has eat today and held everything down. From here on out when we are going to be gone for a while he will have something on his stomach. Poor guy I feel like I made him sick.

    Aww. Poor Otis. I'm glad you found the reason, and I hope he feels better, but this is not your fault. We all try to do what's best for our babies, but we are only human, and we learn everyday, these babies are so very sensitive, and have so many different issues such as allergies, breathing, joints, etc.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
