Hello,

You were not on, but wanted to help you with the puppy. Dogs will eat items to help themselves vomit, or in Lab puppies they will eat anything.

Sounds like she needs a bland diet for a few days to rest the stomach. We can help her by fasting tonight give 1/4 of a Pepcid AC to settle the stomach. Tomorrow, please give her 1 part boiled skinless chicken breast to 3 parts white rice. Please feed in small increments throughout the day. we do not want anything heavy. This will rest her stomach, but give nutrition. Feed the bland diet for a week and start weaning slowly back onto the regular food. This should hep stop the vomiting. If it should continue with the bland diet, the a Vet visit will be needed. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
