Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Is it fair to say that it always happens when she is on an empty stomach?

2- How much does she weigh?

3- How long has this been going on?

4- Any other symptoms?

Friend, what you are describing is consistent with "bilious vomiting," we don't exactly know why it happens but believe that it is related to the acid production in the empty stomach that causes the dog to vomit. A very easy solution is to divide her meal to 3-4 times a day including a snack before bed. Or, you can give her Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg at bed time. You can buy pepcid ac over the counter in any pharmacy. If she continues to vomit after doing these changes I would have her checked by family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
