Greetings, dog lovers! I am Byron de la Navarre, a veterinarian as well as a fellow guardian of man’s best friend. Having grown up in a home where there was always a canine companion, I am very familiar with all their behaviors as well as their physical ailments.

In my 25 years as chief of staff at Animal House of Chicago, Complete Veterinary Care, I have seen lots of vomiting in dogs.

Vomiting describes the active expulsion of food from the stomach. It is not a specific disease or a diagnosis in and of itself. It is a clinical sign that can occur with many diseases or conditions.

If you think growing dogs vomit a lot, you’re right. That’s because dogs have a well-developed vomiting center in their brains, which allows them to throw up much easier than most other animals. It’s partially a defense mechanism to the dog’s scavenger nature. They see something and eat it to find out if it’s edible. If it’s not, their body throws it back out the same way it came in.

But vomiting can also be a sign of a serious and even life-threatening illness in our pets. Here are facts you need to know about vomiting in puppies.

A Vomiting Puppy Is No Laughing Matter

Vomiting in puppies 6 months old or less, because of their smaller size and immature immune system, can be more significant than in older dogs. In general, the occasional bouts of vomiting are not uncommon for dogs. They might have eaten something that upset their stomachs, or just have sensitive digestive systems. However, it becomes more significant when the vomiting does not stop and when there is nothing left in the stomach to throw up except mucus and bile (the yellow fluid). If this occurs, take your puppy to a veterinarian.

While vomiting may have a simple, straightforward cause, it may be an indicator of something far more serious. It is also problematic because it can have a wide range of causes, and determining the correct one may be quite complicated.

In puppies, one of the most devastating conditions that we see all too often at Animal House of Chicago is either coronavirus or parvovirus infection. The severe gastroenteritis often associated with these viral diseases can carry with it a very guarded prognosis in young pups, so it is critically important that your puppy is properly and completely vaccinated. My current dog, Josie, is a French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix who we were able to save from the ravages of parvovirus. Luckily, if the puppies are able to survive the life-threatening vomiting and diarrhea associated with parvovirus, they can usually make a full recovery and live out their normal life span.

Signs And Causes Of Vomiting

Some symptoms that the vomiting is becoming more serious are:

  • Frequent vomiting (it will not stop, happens more than once a day or on consecutive days)
  • Projectile vomiting
  • Evidence of pain and distress
  • Developing weakness and lethargy
  • Bright blood in the vomit (hematemesis)
  • Dark blood in the stool (melena)
  • Vomiting occurring with diarrhea
  • Vomiting hours since eating
  • Abdominal bloating

What causes vomiting? The list is long, and includes:

  • Dietary indiscretion
  • Change in the diet
  • Gobbling food/eating too fast
  • Intolerance to a particular food (i.e., be careful feeding pets food intended for humans)
  • Allergic reaction to a particular food
  • Obstructing objects
  • Acute bacterial or viral inflammation of the stomach (gastriitis)
  • Acute bacterial or viral inflammation of the intestinal tract (enteritis)
  • Parasites (e.g., whipworms, roundworms, Giardia)
  • Bloat and/or torsion of the stomach (prone in deep-chested dogs; very critical)
  • Tumors
  • Metabolic disorders (e.g., liver, kidney disease, etc.)
  • Heat stress/stroke
  • Adrenal gland or other metabolic diseases

Finding Out Why Your Puppy Is Puking

To help your veterinarian to make the diagnosis, bring a sample of the vomit to the clinic. If there is a lot of mucus, an inflamed intestine may be the cause. Undigested food in the vomit can be due to food poisoning, anxiety, or simply overeating or eating too fast. The presence of bile indicates an inflammatory bowel disease or inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). If bright red blood is found, the stomach could be ulcerated. However, if the blood is brown and looks like coffee grounds, the problem may be in the intestines. Finally, strong digestive odors are usually observed when there is an intestinal obstruction.

Your veterinarian, as part of the comprehensive physical examination, will look in your pet’s mouth for foreign objects that may be wedged inside, such as a bone. The pet’s temperature will be taken and an examination of the abdomen will be done. If it turns out to be no more than a passing incident, your veterinarian may ask you to limit the diet to clear fluids and to collect stool samples over that period as the underlying cause may be passed along in the stool. Occasionally, a puppy’s body may use vomiting to clear the intestines of toxins.

How To Stop Vomiting In Puppies

Treatment will be recommended according to the underlying cause behind the vomiting. Some possible remedies include:

  • Dietary changes
  • Medication to control the vomiting (e.g., cimetidine, anti-emetic)
  • Antibiotics for bacterial ulcers and overgrowth
  • Corticosteroids to treat inflammatory bowel disease
  • Surgery, in the case of tumor-caused vomiting or ingested foreign objects
  • Special medications for treating chemotherapy-induced vomiting

As far as what to do and future management, always follow the recommended treatment plan of your veterinarian. Do not experiment with medications or food at this time. Pay close attention to your pet. If he does not improve, return to your veterinarian for a follow-up evaluation.

When Vomit Isn’t Vomit

Another condition we see that can be misinterpreted as vomiting is regurgitation.

Regurgitation refers to the process in which the dog’s stomach contents (i.e., food) move backward up the esophagus and into the mouth. This medical condition can be congenital (inherited) or acquired from a variety of causes. Fortunately, in many instances, modifications to the puppy’s diet, in conjunction with medication, often correct the condition.

Common symptoms associated with regurgitation may include: fever, lethargy, vomiting, coughing, weight loss, difficulty swallowing, bad breath (halitosis), a ravenous appetite, swelling in the throat region and issues with breathing, including increased respiratory noise.

Regurgitation can occur in any breed, although several breeds are predisposed to the condition, including the Wire Fox Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, Great Dane, German Shepherd, Irish Setter, Labrador Retriever, Newfoundland and Chinese Shar-Pei.

Medical conditions that can cause regurgitation include: problems with the throat, often present at birth, congenital problems with the esophagus, acquired problems with the throat that can involve cancer, foreign bodies, rabies, poisoning, muscle diseases (myopathies), acquired esophageal disease that can develop from an enlarged esophagus, tumor, cancer, hiatal hernia, narrowing of the esophagus, and problems with the autonomic nervous system.

To arrive at a diagnosis, your veterinarian will first determine whether vomiting alone caused the symptoms associated with regurgitation. If the condition has been prolonged, an examination of the throat area will be performed to determine the extent of long-term damage. X-rays or other forms of diagnostic imaging may also be used to examine internally for damage.

As far as treatment, modifications with the puppy’s diet will likely be undertaken to see if the condition subsides with dietary changes alone. In some cases, the regurgitation will require ongoing therapy.

For continued therapy, ongoing administration of any necessary medications, as well as diet management will be important to control this condition.

There are is variety of medications that can help prevent regurgitation, as well as antibiotics that can help with any symptoms or signs of pneumonia, which is also commonly present in cases of regurgitation.

  • Greetings Maryann –

    I am very sorry to hear about your little Schnauzer. In small breeds – and especially the miniature’s -you do not want to wait – so along with calling your Veterinarian when signs first begin and getting their advice – I would recommend having them properly evaluate your little one for the various causes of vomiting that I discuss.

  • I have a 4 month old toy poodle. Yesterday I took him to a grooming place for hair cut and shampoo. It was his first time and I left him there for 2 hours. Afterward I brought him to visit few friends (couple different locations). At night he vomited everything he ate and he vomited again this morning after breakfast. What do I need to monitor while waiting to see if he gets better or worse? When should i take him to the vet?

      • Hello Doctor! I have a 6 month old golden chow and he had been puking up his dog food and had a mild case of diarrhea, so my boyfriend and i thinking he had Parvo took him to the vet. When we got there they checked his temp and got a stool sample, he claimed it wasn’t parvo but could be from over indulging in eggs or milk because there was such a high bacteria count. He gave biscuit 2 antibiotic shots and some pills to take home and feed him every 12 hrs. (metrapranizol??) but since we’ve been home he’s been better it seems except he puked after eating dog food 2x last night and this morning he was puking clear stuff. The vet told us to bring him back in if he pukes at all but it’s so expensive. What do you think I should do? Do you have an idea about what could be wrong with my biscuit? Thank you for your time

  • Hello Dr. La Navarre:

    For the last two mornings my 12 week old Lab has regurgitated his breakfast about three hours after eating it. He consumes his lunch and dinner with out any problems. We have examined both his stool and vomit and found nothing alarming in either. Too much food in the morning or what?

  • I have a 7 week old puppy, she was fine at 9 pm then at abot 130 am she began to vomit and have diarrhea. She is weakening fast. I do not have a emergency vet in my rural area. What can I do until the vet opens? We will be at the office waiting for it to open in the am.

      At this time – hopefully you either found an emergency Veterinarian – or your regular Vet. when they opened – it sounds like your puppy needs critical care – hope all goes well – take care – Dr. D

  • Greetings Nancy –

    Though there can be several more involved reasons for his regurgitating his food – and hopefully you have discussed these with your Veterinarian, it could be that he is either eating too fast and/or not properly chewing his food – and/or that he is eating too much – or a combination … you can try to offer less food, sometimes moistening the food will soften it to make it less irritating to the esophagus & stomach if he is not chewing it properly … and indeed you can decrease the amount. Monitor to see if he is eating too fast & not chewing properly – if this is the case you can feed less & soften as I indicated … also there are food dishes out there that help to slow a dog from eating too fast … that may be helpful … of course I recommend that you discuss the matter with your Veterinarians and if it persists having them evaluate your puppy for other issues – all the best – Dr. D

  • Hi, my 9 week old Shih Poo suddenly started vomiting & having diarrhea today. There was a change in his food though. He’s vomited twice and had 1 runny poop. No blood in either. We switched his food back when he had a runny poop this morning. Should we be worried? What can I do to help him?

    Madelyn September 30, 2015 10:51 am Reply
  • Greetings Madelyn – The vomiting & diarrhea you mention may well be a result of the change in food – though there could be several other reasons – so to be safe – best to have your puppy properly & completely evaluated by your Veterinarian as soon as possible – and if you bring a fresh sample of the feces – that will help your Veterinarian. Hope all goes well – take care – Dr. D

  • My 5 1/2 month old chihuahua vomited & is now weak, lethargic & when we move him he wines. He’s sleeping in my arms but I feel so helpless. Can I do anything? I know his symptoms are vague but I’m worried about him. He got neutered 10 days ago & there was no complications during his healing process.

    • Dear Christina – sorry to hear about your puppy. It sounds like you need to take him back to your Veterinarian as soon as possible to be evaluated for the weakness & vomiting. Chihuahua’s are very small – so best not to wait – and instead have the puppy seen by your Vet asap – all the best – Dr. D

  • I have 11 month old boarder collie mix. We adopted him from the humane society at 3 months and days after was treated for parvo and survived it after an intense 2 weeks. Today he has been throwing up white foam (stomach acid) in the morning than gave him small portions of white rice and boiled chicken. He ate the food but hours later he threw it up. But he has been energetic and playful. Should I take him to the vet? He eats blue buffalo wilderness for puppies. Could it be the food?

  • I also gave him pedialyte being that his mid day poop was runny. But his poop before was solid and now hasn’t popped since (been a few hours)

    Sadie October 7, 2015 8:21 pm Reply
    • Greetings Sadie – probably not Parvo – thank goodness – as your pup has recovered from that disease – but no telling – if the pup is ok – not dehydrated this evening you are probably ok to monitor and call your Vet first thing to get their advice based on how the dog does over the rest of the night – if however your pup seems dehydrated / lethargic / febrile / or anything concerns you – then best to contact an emergency clinic asap – hope all goes well – all the best – Dr. D

  • I have a 10 wk old pit bull puppy and he has threw up about 3 times but it has been days apart, hes also eating grass? Could this be a symptom of worms or a intestional parasite?

    jessica October 9, 2015 1:29 pm Reply
    • Dear Jessica –

      the eating of grass could cause the vomiting … so best to avoid .. and indeed – if you have not already – best to have the puppy checked for internal as well as external parasites as part of their puppy exam + any needed vaccinations, etc… Give a call to your Veterinarian and see what they recommend – and if you have not been recently – I would recommend a visit to have these things checked out – all the best – Dr. D

  • My 12 week old puppy is throwing up and his brother who he was around all the time just passed away from parvo but we took our puppy to get tested and vaccinated rite away and he tested negative and had a shot hes been just fine then he started throwing up out of nowhere could this be parvo

    sierra October 9, 2015 9:02 pm Reply
    • Dear Sierra –

      Sorry to hear about the puppies … but it is possible that your puppy may have contracted parvo virus as well – or it could be something else. In any event you need to contact your Veterinarian asap – and have your puppy examined. All the best – Dr. D

  • I have a12 week old cardigan welsh corgi. he is very social and calm around large crowds, people, and pets. The other day he was just hanging out in his dog bed and then got up and threw up what looked to be a while substance. I cleaned it up and he didn’t throw up again for a few days until today, when I took him on a walk he did his business, both 1 and 2 without incident and he started to do his sniffing routine around the grass and trees then he started to heave and the first and second time he threw up a whitish/yellowish substance and the third time he tried he threw up nothing. Since that time we came back from our walk and he began to dart up and down the hallways. I gave him a few ice cubes to see if he’d take, which he did and had been gnawing and licking those for some time and now he’s back in his dog bed sleeping. During this whole time he has not displayed any form of discomfort or whining or crying of any sort. He walks normally and does not show any signs of bloating, I don’t believe. Is this normal or should I take him to a vet?

  • I have a 12 week old pomeranian/papillion mix and she has vomited 11 times in the past week. It is always after eating and then playing (she eats then chases the cat around). It has really only been 2 occasions and she just pukes until it goes from the food to small yellow mucus/bile. (5-6 times within 5 minutes). When she is done she runs around and plays like nothing happened.
    Is it just too much food too fast? She has normal poop, no fever, and doesn’t wat anything weird.

    Thanks

  • My 3.5 month old puppy was chewing on and eating plants while playing in the yard. She lost all the food in her stomach, so I can see she had one or two small hydrangea petals, one begonia petal and a few small ground cover leaves along with parts of a bell pepper from the garden. She tried to again (three times in 30 min.) and only white foam is coming up. She obviously was busy eating while outside today. Is there a medicine I can get at the drug store to help her? Will take her to vet tomorrow.

  • Hello
    My name is Cecilia and my 6 month old chug seems to be having some problems with vommiting though I feel its due to some foods she has gotten into. She has vommited twice in two days but it has stopped now she seems to just be regurgitating into her mouth then swallowing it. About 5 days ago she got into a candy bag and ate half a gummy worm snake which is about 6 inches of it then ate some gummy bears. As well she ended up eating a bag of treats we got her for teething which was a decent amount in one sitting and this was 2 days ago.Also while I was sleeping she ate the sausage and the egg to an Egg Mcmuffin I had from Mcdonalds while I was sleeping. Could it be she is just vomitting from eating things she shouldnt have? I guess I need to find new places to put things so she can’t reach them.

  • Hello
    My name is Robin, we got our puppy on Nov. 6-2015, he is a standard poodle he is 3 months old. he started vomiting up foamy stuff this morning, and then again about an hour later, a lot more the second time, the vomit looked greenish yellow and watery, the third time it was just a little bit and it had grass in his vomit. The second and third time happened within 20min. I fed him, and he only took one bite and did not want to eat, we went for a walk, we came home 10 min later he vomited up the bite he had earlier undigested.

  • I have an 8 week old Rottie. I fed him lunch today and an hour or so later he threw up, could have been regurgitation rat her than vomit because it was like a tubular pile. Should I take him to emergency or wait to see if it happens again? No dierraa, blood,or bile. He just acts as if a human would act after throwing up.

    • Greetings Derek – as I am unable to receive these e-mails directly – so am unable to monitor and significant time may lapse – without question, when ever people have questions / concerns regarding the health of their puppy – any Veterinary professional would always recommend that it is always best for them to contact their Veterinarian directly/ right away so that they can answer the questions immediately and if indicated provide the pup proper care. There can be so many reasons for all the various signs & conditions that people bring up – that there is no way for any Veterinarian to determine the cause(s) from the limited information described, and again, any delay can result in the condition(s) only getting worse – so indeed though people are hoping for something they may be able to do at home – in the best interest for the puppy – it is always best that they contact their Veterinarian directly and asap … I have in the article provided several possible causes and potential treatment plans – but again there can be one or more problems occurring concurrently – so again – best to seek direct Veterinary care in all cases – hope this helps – all the best – Dr. D

  • My 6 month old rat terrier mix was throwing up two weeks ago, for about 4 days, hours after eating. Always a small amount, mostly looked like undigested food. Then two nights in a row she woke up out of her sleep to throw up, but nothing came out except spit/mucus.

    We took her to the vet and the x-rayed her stomach but found no obstruction. She received an anti-nausea injection, pills to be given once a day, and we were advised to put her on a bland diet for 5 days.

    Everything has been fine since following the vet’s recommendations. But now tonight she again woke up out of sleep to throw up.

    She doesn’t seem sick otherwise: normal energy, no issue eating, but had been weird about drinking water.

    I’m so worried about her! I have no idea what could be causing this.

  • Hello Dr. I am very worried about my 17 week old german shepherd lab mix i got from a person. He has been very active, and full of energy. He all of a sudden started throwing up continuesly. He had diarrhea too. His vomit is now clear and I hear his stomach growling. He is starting to have clear fluid leak from his nose. He looks sad and is also dry heaving. We don’t have emergency vets around here. He did eat a cow ear that I noticed he swallowed a huge piece in his vomit. He also got into a lot of dry cat food and soft cat food. I don’t know if he has had his shots either. I forgot to ask. He knocked over a plate that had ranch dressing and some hot wing sauce. I’m sure he liked a little of that. I obviously realize I can’t do anything until tomorrow but was wondering if there is anything I may do for my boy now 🙁 his tail still wags

I don’t know what caused it, but he’s been panting a lot today and he is constantly thirsty. The puke was kind of semi solid and looked very weird. It was peachy and had mushed up food in it. I’m really worried. He’s only thrown up once before and that was in the car I think because of motion sickness but that time his puke was liquid.

We didn’t do anything then as she started to come around. On Tuesday evening, she was her normal playful self but didn’t eat much at all and drank quite alot of water. When we woke up this morning, after taking her out for her normal morning toilet routine, she has thrown up a yellowy frothy mucus. We are not sure what to do as she seems ok in herself and is eating chicken as normal. Can you please advise the best thing for us to do? Thanks

  • Hello, my 9 1/2 week old lab is vomiting and has diarrhea. But this isn’t just some ordinary diarrhea. It’s yellow. I came out of my room earlier and there in the hallway was puddles of yellow liquid. It was too thick to be urine. And a few minutes later, he starts puking. The first time, it was yellow with chunks. The last few times it was just drool and slobber. Nothing as bad as the first one. We haven’t changed his food. He’s been eating the same food since he was of the age to be taken off of his mother. I just don’t understand. An hour ago I was calling him and he was prancing over to me. And and hour later he’s all droopy and doesn’t want to really move. Unless it’s to regurgitate. Please help me. I’ve called nearby vet hospitals and they couldn’t tell me anything or any home remedies. But to bring him in. And I don’t have the money right now for him to be looked at and it cost $300 just for him to be checked

  • I have a 3 3/4 month German Shepherd lab mix. She has has her shots vet said she seemed great and healthy when she went for first visit. About 3 days ago she threw up like an orange mucus not a lot just enough to clean up with paper towel then the next night she did it again. Today the weather changed was extremely warm she went for a long walk then after a good nap she puked a lot. It looked like her dog food was in it. It was in dark hard wood floor so the color was hard to determine. Is she OK what should i do. A friend told me that raw hide bones were bad for them and thinking about everytime she’s puked it’s been during or right after chewing on the bone. She’s been chewing them since we got her though….

    I found what I believe is a pit bull puppy. I think she’s about 4 months old we have had her for about a month now with no problems. Yesterday morning I went out to feed her and I found that she had been sick. It looked like her food had started to digest and then it all came back up. She’s drinking fine and later in the day she was wanting food again I just went out there to feed her her second meal and noticed she had gotten sick again and she want nothing to do with any food. She shouldn’t have been able to get into anything but I’m concerned about her losing weight. She was under weight when I found her and I don’t want all of her forward progress to be lost. Is there anything I can do to help settle her stomach? She’s not getting sick every time she eats more like every other time. Please help.

  • Hello Dr. D,
    I have a 9 week old dachshund puppy. We have been in a motel for the last 3 weeks. I haven’t had the chance to get her to a veterinarian for her first set of shots. (I’m feeling very guilty about this!) I’ve had a family emergency that left me with $50 to my name for the rest of the month. The motel is a crime & drug infested community. They only have house keeping a couple of days a week.
    Before I got her, I treated the entire room for bed bugs & lice as well as a “Home Defense” bug spray for roaches & spiders.
    Because she is a puppy she gets into everything!!!! The first week I had her (I didn’t realize) she had been getting under one of the chairs and tearing up the cloth. She started wretching and threw up quite a bit of string. She wrethed a couple more times & nothing came up. (that was 3 weeks ago) Since then, I have tried to puppy proof the room as much as I can.
    She can get under the bed & she is tearing up the cloth on the box springs.
    I fed her yesterday morning & she threw up most of her food about 30 to 45 minutes later. I fed her a little bit of wet puppy food around 8:30pm and she has pretty much slept since then. She woke me up this morning, which is normal, so she can go to the bathroom. But as soon as I sat up she started wretching again. I was running to get her to the puppy pad…but we didn’t make it & she threw up before I got her there. It was clear fluid with a bit of her food from yesterday evening.
    If this family emergency hadn’t come up…she would have had her shots & chipped.
    What do I need to do? She won’t leave my side. She keeps moving around like she can’t get comfortable and is sleeping alot!! She has terrible bad breath & her ears have an odor. I cleaned her ears with a Q-tip & alcohol. They really weren’t that dirty. Even after I cleaned them they still have an odor. I literally have no money to take her to a Veternarian. I do know of a couple of Emergency Clinics but not sure if they would treat her (due to lack of funds). Can you offer any help until I can get her to the vet or to the Emergency Clinic?
    I’ve lost 2 Dachshunds in the past….one was poisened by some dog food that was recalled & the other was killed by a Pit Bull. They never missed any Veterinary care. I completely believe in getting thier shots on time. Basically, I’ve never been in this type of financial situation … that I couldn’t take care of my pet. I recently have become disabeled and now on a fixed income. I suffer from severe depression & anxiety. My Therapists keep telling me to get a pet to help my condition. My son bought her for me. I would absolutely be devastated if something happened to her!

It looks like white foam. He doesnt eat heavy hes more of a nibbler and i havent seen any change in him other than it went from cool to extermely hot in a week. We are also due with our baby in 6 weeks. Could this maybe just be stress from me and my hormonal change lately? I love my doxie and will rush him to vet if this might be more serious. He acts alittle skittish after he gets sick but within an hour is back to his onery self.

  • Today me & my husband didn’t have time to get to a pet store to buy the food our puppy normally eats, so instead we went to a local rite aid and picked up a small bag of dog food that he never tried but just to hold him over for the next day till we where able to get him his regular food. Well an hour or so after he ate the food he had runny diarrhea and puked one time but it has evidence of food in it, so it was not just bile, is this normal? He went back to playing immediately after both incidents.

  • I have a 5 month old labradoodle who has vomited about once a day for the past week. He is full of energy, peeing and pooping normally, and very interested in food. We try to space out little bits of food over the course of the day so he never gets too hungry, and avoid walks or play time before or after eating. Despite our best efforts, he still seems to vomit at least once a day. He has lost 11 teeth in the last five days, and is also in a new environment for two weeks while I’m on a work trip. Do you think it’s just anxiety and teething?

  • My 4 month old German shepherd threw up 6 times in the course of a couple hours. At first it was his food and some black pieces he probably ate from the carpet and after he started throwing up water/mucus. What do I do?!?

  • I have a 9 mo. old pug puppy, and he regurgitates (not vomits) a few times a day. He doesn’t scarf his food down, but does eat. And he has regular stools. But sometimes he regurges back up semi-digested food. There’s no foam, or abnormal coloration besides what his food looks like.
    I do admit that I feed him some chicken from time to time, in small bits.
    I’m just wondering if maybe he’s not handling the chicken because it may be too rich, or what may be up?
    Thank you.

  • I have pitbull about 11 weeks. First of all, last Friday she was perfectly health and playful around with adult dog lot(I didn’t watch her cares) then my girlfriend got home from work then she bit excited see her which mean not normal because she tend super excited to see her almost everyday when she got home. So she sleep lot that night no vomit but won’t eat or drink water either. Next day, we took her to veterinarian. They said she have baterical in stomach and asked me if she did eat something that suppose not eat it. I explained to them that I am not sure since I didn’t watch. They just think it’s baterical so they gave her shot gentamycin. After vet, we go home and took nap with puppy. After woke up, she is much fine then Friday night. She play with her toys and vet told us that we can’t give her food or water. Then an hour later, she become awful than Friday night. She sleep lot all day. No vomit or no poop yet. Yesterday Sunday, we took her to vet since they told us to. They gave another shot and she seems bit better. Doctor said let give it food and bit water too. We gave her those. She sleep lot all day and at night she still won’t drink water or eat. Late night, she throw up with food from morning. She keep throw up few more. Then today morning, she vomit much and we took her to vet again. Doctor touch stomach belly and didn’t say anything and asked us again if she not suppose eat anything? I told them again that I didn’t watch her from Friday. She checked if she still have baterical and yes she still have it. So she gave another shot is more ML than first and second shot. Then said no food and no water today. We go back home. She vomit on bed then sleep for two hours. After woke up, She vomit again and I took her outside that I knew she need to pee. She did finally poop for three days since Friday. I was wonder why she poop now? Then few min later she vomited.

    Please let me know what’s wrong with her?? Please respond ASAP! Is it really baterical? Or aomething you stuck in her stomach? My girlfriend and I talked about that. We betting on that something stuck in stomach. I mean she was perfect healthy on last Friday. I need your opinion.

  • 3 1/2 month old puppy has been throwing up once every other day for the past 5 days maybe. It wasn’t constant so I thought it was going away, and then it just happened again this morning. It’s just liquid no food. She seems fine otherwise, energetic and eating and pooping alright. Any ideas?
