My dog vomits at the same time every day

My male dacshund has been vomiting at the same time every day for about a week now. It happens about 3am every night, small amout of undigested food or yellow foamy stuff. His appetite, water consumption & behavior have not changed.

Has anything changed? His exercise level? Amount of food being fed?

Ginger will vomit yellow bile when her tummy is too empty.

Perhaps try a small snack before bed to see if he can make it through the night. If it persists I would definitely be making a appt with my vet.

Good luck (and pictures please too )

yep snack before bed is what we do for our guys too! Also you might try some plain yogurt in his food. It helps aid digestion.

Both my boys get a crunchy milkbone at bedtime. We've been doing this for a couple of years now with no problems. The only thing that's changed is my partner left us about a month ago. I'm thinking this is probably the problem, but wanted to get some opinions.

I'm feeding them a raw (BARF) diet with Evo reduced fat dry food. Treats are freeze dried chicken strips (made in China! Yikes!) and a crunchy milkbone biscuit at bedtime. Like I said, no worries up until a couple of weeks ago.
