Your dog could have a serious and life threatening problem. He should be taken to a vet as soon as is possible, as online or telephone diagnoses can be quite unreliable due to the often complex nature of medical problems - especially in animals! A full physical examination by your veterinarian will determine the cause of your dog's problem and he/she will also be able to provide you with appropriate medication. Until you can get your dog to a vet, ensure it drinks plenty of water as vomiting and diarrhoea can lead to dehydration, which is not only harmful and dangerous in itself, but also detrimental to your dog's ability to heal and recover - things it is definitely trying to do if it is sick!

With that said, one of the most common causes for a dog to be vomiting yellow bile and having diarrhoea is IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome. An endoscopy by your vet will be able to determine if this is indeed the cause, and your dog will most likely be treated with prednisone and put on a special diet to help its bowels calm down. You should consider your dog's lifestyle, and try to recall if it may have ingested anything suspect within the last few days that could cause an upset stomach or food poisoning. Sometimes even a shard change in diet or emotional circumstances in the home can cause a dog to get sick and exhibit the symptoms you are seeing. Write down anything you can think of, and take the information to the vet with you as soon as you can.

Yellow bile normally is an indication of just an upset stomach.  The diarrhea could be because he ate something than did not agree with him.  You can always take up his dog food & make sure he has plenty of water.  Then you can feed low fat cottage cheese & cooked white rice in small quantities (either together or separately).  If this goes on longer than 2 days, contact your vet, especially if there is blood in the stool or it gets mucus  (PARVO)  Good luck

Vomiting and diarrhoea can be caused by many things including infection, allergies, food intolerances, dietary indisgression, toxins, worms, foreign bodies, systemic disease like organ failure and metabolic diseases.  It is possible to treat your animal at home if the vomiting or diarrhoea is occurring in isolation, but when they are occurring together it is time to see the vet.  Dehydration and electrolyte imbalances occur quickly, and the first step is to correct this.  Your vet will also administer drugs to modify the intestinal motility of your pup, and do some initial tests to work out the cause of the upset.

Have you changed the dogs diet recently? When you change their diet they may get a bit dodgy but are normally ok. Make sure he drinks plenty of water as the fluids are coming out if hes got diahrea AND vomiting. If you are still concerned take your dog to a vet. Hope this helps xxx

Take you dog to the vet asap it sounds like the dog has parvo !  Try to get some gatorade and/or water in the dogs system so it doesnt get dehydrated.  Make sure you use bleach to kill the virus when cleaning up the vomit or poop.  This can kill your dog keep some fluids in him/her until a vet can run an iv and give medicine.

These two symptoms are also characteristic of Parvo. Has your dog been vaccinated? If not, has it been around other puppies or dogs? Call your local vet. Or even animal shelter if applicable.
