Our dog throws up...

Our dog throws up yellow bile. Is this normal?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

The only thing I can think of is a rawhide chew.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Silas is about 2

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Silas?

No, I just wanted to know if we should be concerned

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Any time of day?

we feed 2 times a day
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It looks like egg yolks

Okay and he vomits at the same time every time?

No just random times
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Should we be concerned?

Okay

This sounds like vomiting bilious syndrome

IF I am right then feeding three times a day should sort it out

IF I am wrong then we may be dealing with inflammatory bowel disease, food intolerance or some other issue

Make sense?

Paul
