Why is my Lab barfing in the mornings?

My 3 year old yellow lab is acting pregnant like me! Today was the 3rd time (in a span of 2 or 3 weeks) she's woken up barfing yellow bile onto my carpet... I haven't changed her diet or her food, she hasn't been eating grass... and she is definitely not pregnant lol So what could be wrong? Any ideas?

  • Dogs get gastric reflux just like humans. Could possibly be that!

  • It is probably caused by an empty stomach. Is there any way you could either feed her last meal a little later or her first meal a little earlier? Or, if you are only feeding her once/day, start feeding her twice/day.

  • Chances are she has heartburn.

  • Its because of an empty stomach. My Fox Terrier does that if I sleep in and dont feed him at eight AM but I get that way too. If I dont eat I get sick to my stomach and then I dont want to eat at all. Its a vicious cycle :(

  • actualy sweety she might be getting alot of air in to her tummy when she eats bigger dogs its alot better to have the food up higher than just on the floor its them not take in some much air when they eat
