Hello and thank you for using the Dog category to help you with your problem. I am sorry to hear Momo is having this problem.

What breed of dog is Momo?

How long has this been going on?

How many times a day do you feed Momo? Is it dry kibble or wet food?

Is Momo on any medications?

How often does Momo seem to vomit bile?

Boston Terrier, I have had him five years, I feed him kibble with water once per day. No meds and it is infrequent. Just happens sometime.

Thank you for that information. You may be seeing acid reflux as just like humans dogs can get this. What I would try is breaking the one meal up into three smaller meals, breakfast, mid afternoon around 3 pm, and then before bed.

An empty stomach can cause more acid so smaller meals may help.

You can also try giving pepcid AC and I will direct you to a site with dosing for this.
