Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Cali. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. My name is Rebecca.
It would be very unusual to see bloat in a 9 week old puppy, and dogs with bloat have hugely distended abdomens. Usually when a dog with bloat tried to vomit, nothing, not even clear fluid comes up.
So this is probably not bloat, but I am concerned about her vomiting, and not eating. She might have a virus or other intestinal infection. Has she been vaccinated at all yet for things like Parvo virus? If she is not eating and drinking, she could become dehydrated.
Check her gums to see if they appear bright pink. Or if they look pale. If her gums are at all pale, or if she goes much longer without drinking or eating and she continues to vomit, I would have her checked by your veterinarian as soon as possible. Let me know what else I can answer, and how she is doing. Rebecca
