Why Your Dog Throws Up Every Morning

Dog Sleeping

Does your poor dog have a tendency to vomit almost every morning? This is something you will want to address immediately as vomiting can be a sign of underlying health issue. In other cases, the vomiting might simply be a result of a lifestyle habit or choice that can be easily adjusted to prevent more vomiting in the future.

Your Dog Has Acid Reflux

Dogs can also suffer from acid reflux. The dog will start vomiting in the morning if they aren’t able to tolerate the buildup of acid in their stomach. The buildup generally occurs during long periods of rest. The likelihood of a dog developing acid reflux is even greater if they go to sleep with an empty stomach. We suggest giving your dog a small, healthy treat before going to bed. The treat will act as a buffer for the stomach acid and alleviate the reflux issues.

Your Dog is Pregnant

Just like us humans, dogs can also experience morning sickness when they are pregnant. Other common signs of morning sickness include lethargic movements and reduced appetite. If you have an unspayed dog then this is something to watch out for.

Your Dog has Pancreatitis

Pancreatitis is a health condition that can be dangerous for dogs if left untreated. The pancreas can get inflamed due to a number of causes including a high-fat diet and diseases such as hypothyroidism. Pancreatitis may cause dogs to vomit in the morning and other parts of the day.

Your Dog has Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The constant vomiting in the morning could also be caused by other health conditions like inflammatory bowel disease. Dogs with IBD are known to have chronic vomiting issues due to the irritation that the condition can cause on the intestinal tract. In addition to chronic vomiting, other common signs of IBD may include a loss of appetite and the development of bloody diarrhea.
