Yorkshire Terrier Vomits and Has Yellow Bile. Natural Alternative to Pepcid?

Q:   We have a 4 year old Yorkshire Terrier and every morning, she has a small amount of vomit which looks like yellow bile.  We have brought her to the vet and he suggested giving her a snack at bedtime which helps.  He also recommended that we use Pepcid.  I would prefer to use something natural.  Is there a natural alternative to using Pepcid?

A.  Some supplements might help.  Try Gastro ULC and Power Probiotic.    These products really seem to help dogs and cats with acid stomach.  Sometimes pets can vomit bile simply from not eating for a long period of time.  Also, ApoStom is a gentle homeopathic remedy for acid stomach which can help as well.   Be sure to avoid giving your dog too much protein as some Yorkshire terriers can be very sensitive.   Regularly check your yorkie's liver enzymes as well.
