It happened before but its happened 5 times today.. He threw up in the morning some chicken he had ate! Is it basically just getting out of his system or should i be worried.. Its definitely not blood.. Most of its just regular like Water/ Saliva but its colored like yellowish as usual.. Respond ASAP!

I had a pup who started throwing up all the time when he was 5 or 6 months old. He was a large dog breed. His problem as it turned out was his guts got twisted. I'm sure there is a professional name for it but that was the vets way of putting it. I guess this is common in big chested dogs, like German Shepard size. He simply couldn't digest his food.

Don't feed him anything for the next 12 hours, just offer him water and cuddles. If he's not vomited for a few hours at the end of this time, slowly introduce bland food in small quantities to him. You could start with baked chicken, (no fat), plain boiled rice, baked white fish, (check for bones).
If this settles ok and there are no repeated incidences of vomiting, he should be fine to resume a normal diet again.
If however, he continues to be sick, blood appears in it, he starts to be ill again when the twelve hours are up or if he starts to look listless and unhappy, take him to a vet immediately. He will need to be checked out by a professional.

If you don't feel too concerned- then I understand- vets are expensive.
