Castlemaid For a snack you can give dog cookies, or a portion of her regular meals. A raw or cooked egg. Anything you feel comfortable feeding - maybe a bit of cooked rice and chicken. Lots of possibilities - I'm of the school of thought that variety is good for dogs - unless you have a dog with a very sensitive stomach, then stick to stuff you know he tolerates well.

Thanks a lot! That's probably it because she's a very lite eater in the morning. What would you recommend as a snack?

selzer But be careful with toys. If she is chewing them up she can get a blockage. One of my puppies had a blockage due to eating toys and it cost a bundle to do a surgery to fix that. If the dog is pooping ok, it is probably ok, but it may be a wake up call to ensure that the toys and other stuff is put up when you cannot supervise.

GsdLoverr729 She could be throwing up from being hungry. My best friend's shepherd will throw up if she has gone too long without eating.

Castlemaid The yellow paste sounds like bile, and is common for dogs and pups to vomit bile on an empty stomach.

What time of day did the two bile incidents happen?

For the chew toy piece, if she is eating, pooping, playing, and being her normal self, I wouldn't worry about it, but do keep an eye on her. If she is eating then vomiting her food back out, acting lethargic,in pain, etc, she may have a blockage. That would be a vet visit ASAP.

Should I be concerned?

To begin, my puppy is 13 weeks old now. She is medically up to date but for the past few days she has been vomiting.
4 days ago she vomited a piece of a chew toy that I had no idea was eaten (she had hidden the toy so I didn't know it was eaten until she vomited). Two days after that she vomited a chunky yellow paste (for lack of better description) and today she vomited again. Each not being a lot of vomit but still vomit.

Everything seems to be normal with her though. She happily plays all day and eats her meals with ease so I'm not sure if this is just something puppies do occasionally? Or is it something she ate (it's hard to keep grass and dirt out of her mouth)?
I've already made an appointment to go see the vet but should I be concerned?

Thanks a lot,
Brandon
