Why is my dog throwing up bile?

My dog seems to be really ill. He is throwing up bile. Did he eat something bad or is it a reaction to the heat? What can I give him for this?

Depends on how often he does , if it is not continuous , then probably his stomach is empty , make sure he eats something . I am not a vet , this is my experience with my dog , she had the same issue and that's what her doctor told me and makes sense .

My dog, Red, does this from time to time as well. He is an extremely picky eater, and will sometimes refuse dog food of any kind (yes, yes, we've tried all the expansive brands, canned stuff, raw, hand feeding, etc etc). After a couple of days of eating little to nothing, he will throw up bile. Our vet told us he does that because he has nothing in his stomach. Then she will tell us the standard line, " When he's hungry, he'll eat." In our case, Red was still at an acceptable weight - and then some - so the vet wasn't too concerned.

If I were you, I'd check with your vet to make sure nothing is seriously wrong, but until you get that appointment, don't fret too much.

He may be throwing up because his stomach is empty or irritated. Please take your dog to the vet! Especially if this is abnormal for your dog.
