Regurgitation

Ejection of the contents of the esophagus, not the stomach.

Regurgitation is a common condition in dogs that causes them to spit up food or liquid. It’s normal for a dog to regurgitate food and water once or twice after eating, but if your dog is regurgitating more than that, it could be a sign of something serious.

Acute gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines) is caused by bacteria or viruses.
