My dog does it sometimes too. Sometimes the food migh have upset her stomach or they chugged water to fast. Nothing to be worried about. Their fine! If you can try to take her to a park or something so she can eat a little grass. Dogs do this when they have an upset stomach. You can also try chicken broth and white rice for a day just to ease her belly.

Mine does this occasionally too. Usually it’s after he drank too much water too quickly.

our dog has done this before when he has a furball stuck in his throat that he’s trying to get out (he has really long fur so he ends up ingesting a lot–ick! it usually comes out the other end but not always…). usually if he has a stomach issue, like from eating something he’s not supposed to, his vomit is umm, chunkier. you could try giving him white rice and/or boiled chicken and/or low-sodium chicken broth if he keeps retching–that’s our general go-to plan when he vomits or has diarrhea, and if it keeps up past a day we take him to the vet

She may be very hungry! Our dog will throw up foamy/ stuff and its because his stomach is empty. Give her a few treats before bed or a small meal!

My dogs sometimes vomits from licking her fur too much, can find some hairs in her trails, that may cause some tummy discomfort.

Research “bilious vomitting syndrome” and feed your dog a snack at night.

One of my dogs does this if he goes to long without eating. I asked the vet about it, he said it’s nothing to be alarmed about, just feed the dog more often.

(Strangely enough, this seemed to only be an issue when I fed kibble. Even on “fasting” days with raw he doesn’t do it. Maybe it had to do something with the grain in his old food, I really don’t know.)

My little guy still does this about every other week.  We asked the vet and he told us that since he is so active he has burned off all of the food he ate from the night before.  So we need to either feed him right before bed or if we happen to wake up in the middle of the night.  And of course you can’t just give the 1 dog an extra little snack at night- so our other 2 are enjoying an extra snack as well!  In all of the times he has had this extra snack at night- there has been no 5 a.m. wake up calls!

Good advice from everyone.

As long as your pup is still eating and drinking normally you should be fine. When her appetite starts to dwindle then you should contact your vet, otherwise it is a normal thing and all dogs do it on occassion.
