Lol be kind! He obviously doesn't get all that at once. But yeah, the kibble raw mix is common at night.

Had the same problem here, but with kibble instead of raw. I dealt with that yellow bile early morning throwing up for years and it got really bad at times. It was the protein that was causing problems. Chicken, turkey, and duck specifically.

Tried multiple kibbles and nothing helped. Finally got her off all poultry completely and on a lamb/beef formula and the problem was fixed pretty much overnight. Went years without that yellow bile throwing up once i made that switch.

Had to switch formulas again because the company stopped making that beef/lamb formula and tried going back to poultry and she started throwing up again. Switched back to a different red meat formula and no more throwing up. It was the chicken/turkey/duck.

When the dog is fed at the same times each day, there is a rush of gastric juice in anticipation of the meal.
What I was told to do is vary the feeding time, so that we don't have this massive gastric juice influx happening.

This truly works.

I also realized that the calculated amount of 1 1/2 pounds wasn't enough for him, and after I bumped it up to 2 pounds of raw, we had no more problems.

How old is the dog?

Interesting idea. This only happens over night though. He's fed between 7 and 8am... Last night he got us up at 4am vomiting... Can it start that early?

I would try feeding a snack in the early evening, and the big meal just before you go to bed.
If that doesn't work, I would switch protein.

I would try making the night time treats cookies of some sort - I make grain free ones for mine or buy them if I am feeling lazy! My dogs always charge inside the house after their last potty break because they know what is coming!!!

Thanks for your help everyone - I'll try out some more things.

Will also not combine the raw with kibble anymore... it's easy for me to avoid it, so no point in risking anything.

I am so glad you posted this. I have the same problem with her throwing up bile in the middle of the night. Never thought she had an empty stomach! I feed her at 5 pm and that must be way too early. My thinking was that I wouldn't have to get up in the middle of the night to take her out. When I first switched her to RAW she had some diarreha and had to go out at all hours.

I also feed kibble. I felt safer switching over slowly and was just going to feed her 1 raw meal a day but it made such a difference with her that I feed all raw. I leave kibble down but she rarely eats it.

I'll have to try feeding her later tonight! Thanks
