Thank you for using our service. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like your dog may be experiencing gastrointestinal issues. Vomiting bile and large balls of hair can be a sign of an underlying health problem, such as pancreatitis or an intestinal obstruction. Grunting and excessive gas can also be symptoms of gastrointestinal issues.

It's always best to consult with a veterinarian if you're concerned about your dog's health. They will be able to perform a physical examination and run any necessary tests to determine the cause of your dog's symptoms. They may also be able to recommend a treatment plan to help your dog feel better.

In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help your dog feel more comfortable. First, make sure you are feeding your dog a high-quality, age-appropriate diet. Some dogs may be more sensitive to certain ingredients in their food, so it's important to choose a brand that is formulated for your dog's specific needs. You may also want to reduce the amount of treats you give your dog, as these can sometimes cause gastrointestinal upset.

It's also a good idea to make sure your dog has access to plenty of clean, fresh water. Dehydration can make gastrointestinal issues worse, so it's important to keep your dog well-hydrated.

If your dog is still experiencing symptoms after a day or two, or if their symptoms seem to be getting worse, it's best to consult with a veterinarian as soon as possible.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
