Thanks for your concern and help. I got him to a vet, it turns out he has parvo. It cost too much for me to keep him hospitalized so I am going to do the best I can to take care of him, and get him well.
Hey. i just got an 8 wee old puppy Sunday, he has been fine i guess, but Monday I gave him a a puppy chew thing for his teeth, bad idea!
I noticed the after math of that Tuesday as he had diarrhea, and it caused him to throw up. He also wouldn't eat or really drink any water that day.
Wednesday he didn't throw up at all. He ate a little, not even 1/2 cup of food. And drank but not much.
This morning he work me up three different times throwing up. Its a very watery/slightly foamy vomit. And when I took him out just he was looking at me and just spit up on the ground. He hasn't eaten still but did drink some water.
He is really laid back, I can't tell if its his demeanor or if he doesn't feel well. He sleeps a lot! I'm also unsure if its just the change of living situations for him that has caused him not to feel well, he went from under a barn with fifteen other dogs/puppies to living in a house with one other dog.
if you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate them!

Ditto that, he may have any number of conditions. What breed is he? Make sure you push the fluids, and if you can't get in to the vet right away, just got to emerg. Depending on what breed he is, he could be lethargic from being sick, and dehydrated. You can give him some pedialyte in the meantime, till you see the vet.
Get him to a vet asap! He could be dehydrated from the vomiting. There are so many things that could cause these symptoms in a puppy. I would be concerned about him having a foreign body from the dental bone you mentioned. Some of them do not digest well and pieces can become lodged in their intestines. Sometimes they have to have surgery to have them removed. Not trying to scare you, but waiting around could be the difference between life and death.
Hopefully this is not the case and the vomiting is caused by something else. The dental bone just sent me a red flag and of course this can only be diagnosed by an x-ray. I hope you're puppy is okay. Definitely get some fluids in him if you can. Let us know how he does. I hope he's feeling better soon.
