Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Murphy has been throwing up and not eating. How long have those things been going on? How many times has he vomited and what does it look like?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the vomit is mainly liquid yellow
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Rachel, Dog Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

That sounds like he is vomiting up bile, which usually occurs due to acid reflux. I would give him some over-the-counter Pepcid to help settle his stomach. About how much does he weigh?
