Default vomiting?

I've got a bit of a problem. Artimis keeps vomiting in the morning. He's done this for weeks. At first we thought he had an upset stomach, but he's showing no other signs at all of illness. His coat is great, he still eats and he isn't looking skinny at all.

It's almost like he is making himself vomit. It's not directly after he eats, it's actually before his first meal. We wake up, and let him out to potty. He then potties, vomits, and then poo's. Every morning.

He's already been to the vet's they said he looks great. We thought it was because he was eating his fast way too fast and not chewing. So we cut his meals down to smaller pieces and much smaller quantities. Still he's vomiting.

Any idea's?

How long does he go between his last meal of the day and his first meal in the morning? Is it just yellow, foamy vomit?
My first instinct is that he's going too long between meals so he is throwing up because his stomach is empty and upset for that reason...

No it's not just bile and stomach acid. It's food, partially digested food. Vet said he seems healthy, no help from them.

And he does seem very healthy. I'm pretty sure he's not getting too much food either. His water intake is good.

It doesn't seem to be affecting his health negatively yet, I just don't like it at all. It doesn't seem normal to me.

IT's an empty stomach. He may need to eat 2 or even 3 times day..the same amount you would feed if you were feeding once or twice, just divied up. Victor and Pepper both will do that if i feed them only once a day.

We don't feed once a day. We've had to feed him multiple, small meals each day so he doesn't eat it so fast. It's definitely NOT an empty stomach either.

Hmmm, that is very interesting. How soon before bed is he eating? Maybe he needs to eat earlier before bed..?

At least a few hours. He typically doesn't go to sleep until we do and that's pretty late. He eats when I get home from work around 9:30-10pm or so.

Do you give him a lot of attention for vomiting? Aubrey had developed "attention puking" at one point.

Do you wet his food before he eats it?

Mine have always done better on once a day feeding . I think it depends on the breed and their size . I've had my Grandog Seger for a few days . He's free fed at home , but it doesn't work out well here with Ollie . I've tried giving him food in the garage , but he didn;t eat . So I fed him with Ollie with a little canned and water and they both wolf it down together ! Yup , Grammys can spoil !
