My 1 year old female dog started throwing up 3 days ago

Customer Question
twice a day. She threw...
My 1 year old female dog started throwing up 3 days ago twice a day. She threw up just now 3:00 am, yesterday afternoon, the middle of the night the night before last, and then the day before that was in the morning around 7:00 am. The first time it looked like a ball of hair, but since then it has been food. She is a very picky eater and I had to switch her from kibble to vital (the stuff that you store in the fridge) because she would go so long without eating she would throw up bile. She has been good for about a week with the transition. No more bile throw up. Just don't know when I should worry about this new round of throw up. She does inhale her meals now, but the two middle of the night episodes were several hours after she ate, as was the one in the afternoon.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Can she keep any food or water down?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
