I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I wouldn't be alarmed seeing the one episode of vomiting but would be if it persisted. The pup may be colicky or needing worming or perhaps found something inappropriate to ingest. If mom's dietary indiscretion were responsible I'd expect all of the pups to be vomiting. I wouldn't treat the vomiting specifically but I would worm all of the pups with an over the counter product containing pyrantel pamoate if that hasn't been done yet. Roundworm impaction is my primary concern. May I have an update on this pup, please?

How old do bulldog pups have to be for their first parvo shots? , I was hoping to give them 2 parvo shots by 8 weeks when they go with nee owners since parvio is
common in this area
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 7 months ago.
Current canine vaccination guidelines suggest DHP between 6-8 weeks and repeated at 9-11 weeks and 14-16 weeks. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

The breeder we bought are male from said he does one at 6 weeks and another at 8 wasnt sure if that was to much. Thank you
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 7 months ago.
6 weeks followed by one at 9 (rather than 8) weeks gives a better amnestic response (boost in antibody production). You're welcome.
