My oldest small dog does this, he throws up just a yellow bile if he goes longer than 10 hours without food. It's a recent thing for him so I started feeding him 3 meals a day and just have to be sure to feed him first thing in the morning.

Okay, well my girl just threw up but nothing came up and she did it again and then White spit came up and she tried a third time but nothing and then she ran to the fridge and stared at it

I already feed her breakfast and dinner so I guess I'm gonna have to start feeding her lunch too because I can't increase the size of her two meals as it is because she's already eating 3 pounds a day!! She would bloat or puke from too much food in the tummy...

Tyson started getting hunger pukes this year. I can tell that it is coming because his stomach grumbles and the tries to eat grass. Then it takes so much time to get him to eat. Usually, it happens between the night and morning feedings.

Maybe feed her dinner a little earlier, then add a small bedtime snack to tide her overnight.

I can't feed her past 8 unfortunately because she suffers from acid reflux if I do

So today I brought a lunch to work for her so we will see how that goes. I'm scared to feed her and leave her alone out of my view because I was told once that if a dog bloats it's usually within the first 20 min to 1 hr after eating... But it is just only 12 oz so it should be fine??? It's basically a little snack

12 oz is a meal for Duke! lol I can't get over how much she eats. You had her tested for hyperthyroidism right?

It does sound like the hunger pukes, although considering how much food she gets I can't understand how she would still be hungry!

Hopefully the "snack" helps!

Wow Wyatt only gets 9 oz twice a day!

Wyatt used to get them horribly, I was afraid when I dropped the amount he ate how much he would puke, but I did it gradually.

Hunger pukes are usually white, foamy, have some yellow in them and usually not a bad odor.

Sasasola - I had her blood-tested for hypothyroidism by a holistic vet. He sent the sample off to a clinic in the USA (I'm in Canada) called HemoPet. The results came back saying she didn't have hypothyroidism but that she had some "gene" or something like that, that could result in it some day so he put her on a very very mild dose of thyroid meds to try to see if it would do things like help her gulping episodes and if we were lucky maybe another benefit would be a reduction in her environmental allergies... Then I was questioning if she needed to be on the meds at all so I got a second opinion from my western vet at a more local lab, and her result came back as normal, but I still wonder if I should get her tested yet again because she now hasn't been on meds for 4 months...

hypErthyoridism... No she hasn't been tested I don't think, both the holistic and the western vet said it isn't common in dogs so we wouldn't test...



Wyatt's_Mom - I know, this little 52lb bundle of excitement and love I have eats like a horse... She eats 24oz at each meal (3 lbs a day) and now a lunchtime snack... And she fluctuates visually between on the skinny side and "just right". She has a super duper metabolism. I don't mind but I can't feed her more at each meal, her seams will burst!! Her puke description was just what you described but without yellow in it, just white foam. One of her attempts last night nothing came up at all, then white foam right after on her second attempt. She was really happy when I fed her she was begging at the fridge door!

She doesn't have worms either, I can't explain it, her whole digestive system is so sensitive and high maintenance

I was thinking of putting her on a
Liver cleanse and see if it helps everything. I have no experience with that but have heard it can help...

Was it MTHFR gene? If so there is a high probability of developing hypothyroidism. Cats tend to get hypERthyroidism and dogs hypOthyroidism not sure why that is. I would watch carefully for signs of hypothyroidism to begin they don't necessarily begin with just food and weight issues.
