Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am sorry that Blue does not feel well but this is common in younger puppies. They tend to ingest almost anything, especially Weimaraners. Blue most likely has a digestive disturbance and the treatment for this is as follows:
Fast Blue for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.Give him Pepcid AC or Famotidine at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs. That can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy.Give only small amounts of water during the fast or ice cubes After the fast, feed rice and boiled chicken (2/1)
If the vomiting has resolved, then wean Blue back onto regular food. If the vomiting persists especially during the fast, take Blue to your vet for an exam and lab work to determine the cause for this. This is extremely important since this can cause dehydration or other more serious concerns such as an intestinal obstruction.
Does that make sense to you?
