Whether you should feed your dog or not after vomiting yellow bile will depend on your dog’s situation.
When To Feed Your Dog After Vomiting?
If your dog has vomited bile once due to an empty stomach and has no signs of being sick, you can feed the dog small amounts of food every few hours. It is, however, wise to wait for at least 6 hours to allow your dog’s stomach lining to settle down.
A bland diet of white unseasoned rice or chicken broth given in small quantities a few times during the day is the best choice as explained in the previous section. This will prevent your dog’s upset stomach from getting worse.
Water should not be withheld from a vomiting dog, as throwing up causes dehydration. If your dog can’t hold the water in its stomach, substitute it with ice chips as these will soothe your pet’s stomach and most dogs like them.
When To Fast Your Dog For A Longer Period After Vomiting?
If your dog’s vomiting is consistent, you should consider withholding food for longer (12 to 24 hours).
Once vomiting stops, do not rush to give food until around 6 hours after the last episode of throwing up bile. A bland diet should be given gradually.
The Diet-Change Alternative
Experts advise that a change of diet is a great way to help a dog that has been vomiting bile.
First, consider giving your dog a light night meal or a treat before bed if throwing up bile seems to appear first thing in the morning.
Further, since indigestion and food allergies and resistances are common causes of throwing up bile among dogs, a readily palatable and digestible food can change the situation.
