Im taking Bear to the Vet tomorow morning, but in the mean time I would like to ask some advice. Bear is 5 weeks old, he eats every meal with no problem and always keeps the meals down. Anyway after I went to bed lastnight my boyfriend told me Bear threw up. I watched him all day today and he didnt do it agian and he was acting normal, very hyper and playful. Then about 30 min ago i fed him dinner and just now he threw it up, just food.He then tried to eat it agian, yuck.
He didnt throw up his breakfast or lunch and is acting normal, his poop is watery but not all the time, i think thats cause ive only had him a week so he is still getting use to the food. The day I got him he was dewormed.
Is this normal? Maybe he ate to quick?Im worried since he is only 5 weeks.
Otherwise he is fat, spunky,playful, and just so darn cute!
Eukanuba small breed cause the kibble is small and wellness wet food puppy but just a little so he will eat. Im only feeding the Eukanuba right now cause i got a free bag from work the day i got him and since that was the first time he ever had dry food i didnt want to switch it up on him so soon. Im planning to switch to something better. But he has been eating this food for about a week or more.
5 weeks old? The people you got him from, let him go at 4 weeks old? ::just shakes head:; He should still be on his mothers milk still and just starting his weaning at 7 to 8 weeks. Probably why he is throwing up is that his stomach cannot properly digest the kibble. What is happening is akin to feeding a 2 month old baby porterhouse steak. You should have him on puppy milk. Not real food only. He is probably dehydrated and starting malnutrition. This is just terrible, how could that breeder let that puppy go so soon, it is too young.
I correct myself, she found an ad in the newspaper for puppies that were 1 month old for 25 each, she knew that most people would not know how to care for a pup that young correctly so she went and got them herself.
I also work at an animal hospital and I had the vet check him out the second i got him, we put some dry and wet food down to see what he would do and he cobbled it up, he drinks plenty of water. This pup is healthy except he threw up his food these two times.He also eats all his dry food, he loves to eat.
As i stated in my orignal post he is going to the doctor tomorow morning. Im just looking for helpful suggestions as to what this might be.

Please excuse me, I did not know he was a rescue. I am still dis appointed that a human would let a puppy go at such a young age. There is never an end to the misery humans commit on the dog world. This is just another example of humans that think dogs are not worth it. Not you Stormy, but the people that let these pupies go so early on.
I want to introduce myself...just signed up...so I'm very new on this site...my name is Lonna and I'm from CNY around Syracuse, NY area. I was reading your post and I know how you feel...my PSD Dakota throws up for no reason and he is on a feeding schedule every day plus he takes a medication to help calm him down...he only throws up when his tummy is upset and 99.9% of the time it's bile...Dakota receives nothing other then dog food...he gets "greenies"..."rawhides"...regular treats for training and that is it.
What kind of puppy food are you feeding him? Could he be getting into something around the house that you don't know about? Are you feeding him "people food"?
"Something that she/he ate" is the number 1 cause of gastrointestinal distress in dogs.
The one thing that I had a very hard time doing with my pup was doing what is called "fasting" where he could not eat/drink anything for 12 to 24 hours after he has vomited....just throwing some suggestions out there...hope this helps
IT COULD BE THAT HE STOMACH NEEDS TO ADJUST TO THE FOOD. TO TO PUREE IT BECAUSE HE SHOULD BARELY BE GETTING HIS TEETH. WHEN YOU DEWORM A DOG THEY WILL GET RUNNING POOP AND THROW UP, BUT THATS JUST THE MEDICINE WORKING. HE MAY EVEN THROW UP THE WORMS. (YUCK) WATCH HIM FOR A FEW DAYS, AND IF IT PERSIST TAKE HIM TO THE VET. MAKE SURE THAT HE IS TAKING IN PLENTY OF FLUIDS TOO
I have a 5month old female boxer, the last 4 nights she has threw up just in night( 1:00 am-5am) and it is just white foam as well. She eats and poops fine, but just throws up at night, and she has tons of energy. Does anyone know what it could be?
the reason there are worms in his thhrowup is because there r naturally worms in the mothers milk and he was just dewormed so they are clearing out of his system i have a 5 week pup and i feed her dry food she is completely fine and started eating it 2 weeks ago by choise, there is no reason to switch to milk unless your puppy is not eating his food. the worms are normal and thats whats causing the throw up. he should be fine within a few days when the worms are out of his system
If they are throwing up, they can still dehydrate. Even though the puppy is drinking water, I would suggest some pedialyte until you can get him to the vet. The vomiting could be caused by a number of things, so I suggest just sustaning him until he sees the doctor.
I would imagine that it's just a reaction from the food, but also could be worms. It could be the worming, or a combo, a lot of puppies throw up worms. I think I would start him on a bland diet, of puppy formula, homemade, with a little bit of soaked kibble in it. The formula I'm referring to is: 1 can of evaporated milk goat's milk if you can get it, then you don't need the 3 ounces of water to mix with the evap. milk 1 egg yolk baby rice cereal.. 4 or 5 tablespoons, sloppy at first, and thickening it as he progresses. This formula has seen me through many a weaned early litter. One thing you have on your side is this puppy is already 5 weeks old; so you won't have to do this too long. Good luck with the puppy.
