I have a 10 month old Lab mix puppy. Several times this past week, she has vomited at around 3-4 am...its mostly liquid and she tends to lap it back up (eeuuww!). Otherwise she is fine - eating, drinking,playing as usual. She still chews things, but doesn't ingest much, except paper when she get hold of a napkin. I was reading other answers and it sounds like perhaps its the acid in her stomach. She eats twice a day, with the second meal being at around 5 pm. Should I be feeding her a bit of kibble, or a healthy dog treat right before bed?
Sounds like except for the vomiting, she seems to be OK. This can be due to slow motility of the stomach or just an empty stomach for too long. Instead of one large meal at 5:00, try splitting that up into a few smaller meals and feed the last one later. I would also cut down on fat and watch what she is getting into! Last thing you want is an obstruction. Your Vet can prescribe something for the stomach or you can ask your Vet if you can try some Pepcid. Always consult with your Vet. Sometimes, you can just call and get an answer. However, I would try the smaller meals spaced out first.
A slight possibility might be worms. Has she been wormed? You can akways take a fresh stool sample to the Vet to have it checked.
