Echo has been sick the last three nights at exactly 2 am. He is fine in himself eating normally and pooing normally playing normally. Nothing in his life has changed - food routine etc. He brings up froth, last night there were some foreign objects (bits of silver foil, grass and other unidentifiable bits) I have spoken to the vet who said to keep an eye on him and go in if his condition changed. I assume that he has eaten something indigestible but it is odd that it is always 2am. Anyone else had this problem? Whisper is fine but he is less lab and more poodle he doesn't Hoover quite as much.

Echo says he needs a little snack in the evening. Sure i read that somewhere. I know when i cut my girl's food right back we had some days of frothy vomit early morning, solved by little more food in evening much to her delight.
If my girl has eaten something that disagrees eg bones or too many twiggy sticks i get used to get a 3am wakeup.

Both boys have supper before bed. I have increased Echo's tonight in the hope I can get a nights sleep. It is just so odd that it is exactly 2am when he barks!
Olly, Echo & Whisper.

I hope Echo is feeling a bit better
I can't really help other than I sympathize, if Stout is sick - usually after eating sticks - or if he is having an ibd flare up, it is usually at 3am

On the occasions when Dude pukes it's nearly always at 3am! He's in our room so I hear the warning sounds! It's nearly always because he's been scoffing nasty things out on walks! Once he produced half a pair of tights!
The favourite forbidden snack at the moment is grass cuttings( all of the verges seem to have been done lately) Grass doesn't make him sick, but his, still firm,poos are a fine shade of green!
It is interesting that, when he is sick, it's always 3am. I assume it's how the dog digestion works? Anny

At my yoga class there are a couple of people who are acupuncturists. Apparently every organ in the human body has its own time of day, so if you always wake at the same time it is due to a particular organ. When nan died, me and my mum kept waking at 4am which is lung time - they are linked to grief
. I am not entirely convinced, but maybe there is something in it
It's weird they seem to be ick at the same time
We5kings - stout sleeps in room too, usually before he is sick he makes noises with his tongue before the tell tale retching. Sadly I had a back op a few years ago, so it can take me a while to get out of bed (Chris has his earplugs in to drown out my snoring
), and he has been known to throw up right in the corner behind the door so you can't then get out to take him outside

Oh my goodness Michelle, I so know what you mean! I am currently suffering with foot Tendonitis so can't leap out of bed when those noises begin!
Yep, Dude makes his way to the opposite corner to his bed(behind the door!) Delightful isn't it

Echo made it though the night without an issue. He wolfed down his breakfast and then regurgitated part of it!!! I am not sure if it was the later suppper or the increased amount that did the trick or if he had just managed to get rid of the junk that he had eaten. I will keep the later supper and the extra amount just in case it was that. (Typically though the dog slept through I was up at 2am with a migraine!)
The boys sleep in crates so I don't have the problem of them being sick in the bedroom for which I am truely grateful. Clearing that mess up on the middle of the night - no thanks. At least with crates all I have to do is replace the vet bed.
