Reasons Why Dogs Vomit Bile In the Morning

Why Is My Pet Vomiting Bile?

Bile can be irritating to the stomach and can appear as a yellowish foamy substance. Bile is produced by the liver, stored in the gallbladder and is squirted into the intestines to help with digestion of fats and protein.  However, bile can end up in the stomach (due to a stomach valve issue), causing irritation especially if a pet has an empty stomach.  If your pet is vomiting bile, it's important to bring them to the vet for an exam.  Finding the root cause can bring your pet fast relief.  

Here are some of the more common reasons that your dog may be vomiting bile:

Bilious Vomiting Syndrome: this is a condition when the bile leaks into other parts of the digestive system (stomach and small intestine). It occurs most often when your pet has not eaten frequently enough or ingested an excess amount of fatty food.

Symptom of A GI Condition:  Pets can vomit bile as a result of a  GI Condition such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD/IBS), Ulcers, Parasites or acid reflux.

Allergies-  Many pets are intolerant of common foods such as poultry or grains.   When a pet consumes a food they are allergic, it can cause acid reflux and vomiting bile.

Pancreatitis:  Pets with pancreatitis have very sensitive digestion and require a low fat diet.  A pet can have a flare up after eating high fat foods resulting in inflammation of the pancreas. Symptoms will include vomiting, extreme stomach pain and diarrhea.

Liver Disease:  The liver’s main functions are detoxification and secreting bile to help digestion. When the liver is unable to perform these functions, toxins may not be removed, and symptoms will become more common. Signs of liver disease includes a loss of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting.

Many times, a change in diet and a few supplements can be life-changing for pets that are vomiting bile.

Diet Changes Are Needed For Pets Vomiting Bile
Changing your pet’s diet to a hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory diet can help. Many foods can be hard to digest,  worsen symptoms and increase flare-ups. Even just changing the size and timing of the meals may help in some cases.  If you include your pet’s current diet and symptoms on the order form at checkout, will include a diet suggestion on the packing slip that comes with the product directions.
