Health related problems that appear to be allergy related (skin condition, sneazing or others). On your part or your dog's part are for discussion here.

7month old cockapoo..usually 1 time during night with heave and bring up some liquid/mucus..otherwise healthy...food not included..anything to do..It does stain fabric he is sleeping on but doesn't have an odor. what to do?
It sounds more to me like an allergy. If he were actually vomiting, it would be a yellow color and may or may not contain food. The fact that he is bringing up a clear liquid leads me to believe that he is actually coughing up mucus. I would have him seen by a Vet to determine the cause.
If you are concerned about his bedding, then I would toss down a dark colored towel for him to lay on. He is still pretty young and I would recommend crate training him. This way you know that he is safe while you are sleeping and he can't get into trouble.
hmmm, didn't say "clear" liquid. How often does your dog get fed? Or is there food available all the time?
You can probaly stop this by feeding twice a day & then a snack at bedtime. some yogurt & a couple bisquits, apple slices & cottage cheese something lite.
Nylabone, all the way! Here's a link to one of the posts about rawhides...
Just for future reference, if your dog ends up consistently vomiting clear liquid with no coloration, i.e. waterish, it could be a very bad sign. It could mean that the dog is having difficulty keeping water down and keeping itself hydrated. In that case, the dog could quickly become dehydrated (and die) if you don't get to a vet. Of course, you'd have some warnings that something was amiss -- diarrhea, vomiting food, etc.
Thanks so much for the reply and concern!!! I know that hydration is important ..especially with our continuing warm weather..He is supplied water even when in his crate..I checked with vet this PM and the mg. for Pepcid is 5mg or 1/2 of the 10 mg. tab..The tech had told me 1/2 of 1mg. Wouldn't be the same!!
<p>Yikes! Good thing you double checked on the dosage.</p>
<p>What I meant with the vomiting clear liquid is that even if the dog has access to water and drinks and drinks and drinks, it won't be able to keep the water down and won't be able to hydrate itself. </p>
