    So my dog Sting is about 9 months old and basically for his entire life he has thrown up out of nowhere roughly 2-3 times a month. Usually it is in the morning, often on an empty stomach when only clearish fluid comes up but sometimes he'll throw up a whole meal. I don't know how often young dogs usually throw up, I would imagine that some of these instances are the result normal causes for dogs throwing up, like eating something weird, but it seems too frequent. I have read that some dogs have acid reflux which can cause that to happen, but I am wondering if any of you have any other ideas.

    Thanks

    could be a lot of things - food issues, sensitive stomach, junk eating. My Jake eats all kinds of garbage - plastic, dryer sheets, anything fuzzy. When he pukes it's generally because his intestines are rebelling. You might want to check with your vet.

    Harley used to vomit a lot. Part of the problem was food allergies, but the main problem was that he needed to be fed more often (acid reflux). Sometimes feeding a small meal, or even just a handful of food will help with the morning pukes. Pepcid was very helpful, and I still give it to him sometimes if I get home from work late and his stomach is bothering him. You can ask your vet for a dosage.... I would definitely try switching to an allergy diet also.

    Gauge did this and I have found alot of Boxers have this problem. Give him a snack before bed. Some dogs just cannot go 8 hrs with out food they end up vomitting bile. So give him a snack before bed and see what happens.
