If it's an allergy it doesn't mean it's meat. Could be corn or any other grain, which is more common. Could be something else all together. Could be something serious like others have listed. You don't know. I'd cut the treats, cut the table food. Feed the dog food and only the dog food and see how he does with that. If it's still a problem switch to a grain free food and see, if still a problem switch proteins. But a vet visit is really your best bet. I would also look into raw feeding, it helps many dogs with sensitive stomachs and allergies. You also know exactly what it is your dog is getting, no guessing if it's ingredient A, B or X that is causing the problem.

One of my dogs was vomiting bile occasionally over a period of a month or two, mostly in the morning (eats 1x daily in PM), otherwise 100% fine, active, eating, etc. I had mentioned it to his vet and he suggested to try feeding a "snack" right before bed, and that we could try pepcid as well. Before I did either of those things, he vomited up a chunk of wood or a nut shell that had obviously been hanging out in his stomach for a good while. He hasn't had the symptoms since, so it obviously was due to the foreign body... we're very lucky it was apparently too large to exit his stomach, or he would have probably developed a blockage. The thought of a foreign body had never crossed my mind, as he's not the sort of dog to chew stuff up or eat items that aren't food, he must have picked it up with a toy while we were playing, or while digging. It would be worth seeing the vet to make sure it's not something like that, I know I will if he ever has similar symptoms again.

That is why I said to do a vet check to eliminate illness first.

I would still do the vet check first. Then if the vet recommends a change of diet you could do a veggie diet. I used a diet from a Dr Dodds it was for dogs with IBS. It uses beans as a source of protein. It is a combination of lentils, split peas and a variety of grated steamed veggies. Mostly a variety of squash such as butternut spaghetti and zucchini. I also include cabbage carrots sometimes apple. I would change up the veggies every time I cooked I included 2 of the above. I cooked enough for a week at a time. You need to freeze what you can use in 3 days. You also need a good muti vitamin I used this. Make sure to get you dogs weight when you go to the vet, you will need it for the vitamins.

Also very similar to what we went through with Samantha, including the Pepcid, which did help to settle her stomach. Can't really pinpoint what if anything we did to help, it just fortunately is not the problem it once was. Now we constantly fight her gaining too much weight, which she tends to do, but we are very determined that she will not become overweight, which is really hard on their skeletal structure as well as other systemic problems.
