I have an 8 month old blue heeled who has been puking and dry heaving most of the day. He puked a lot this morning and dry heaved for the last 9 hours. He ate his food and drank this evening, but he still gags and dry heaves. His temp was 101 and I gave him a peptobismol pill. Just kinda worried about the little guy. He's been eating grass on and off all day because of his stomach pains as well.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: He has had all of his shots except his parvo shot. He hasn't had any diarrhea that I have seen. Also saw him chewing on an animal backbone before all of this started.

I have a 9 week old puppy that I got last Wednesday

Hi, I have a 9 week old puppy that I got last Wednesday afternoon. She was acting pretty normal (sleeping a lot but not lethargic) and didn't eat any of the food (I put two different types of kibble out for her) on the day she arrived. I chalked it up to nerves. Then on early Thursday morning, she had diarrhea and was dry heaving periodically and continued to not eat or drink any water. Any time she drank water, she threw it up rather immediately. She began to look visibly weaker so I took her to the vet Thursday afternoon. They tested her for parvo and I even took her stool sample which tested negative for parasites. They gave her a shot on her back for fluids as she was very dehydrated. They also gave her an antacid shot, anti nausea shot, and an antibiotic shot. All the shots were quite hard for her so she slept most of Thursday evening but did not throw up or dry heave. They sent me home with the oral version of the anti nausea medication that instructed me to feed her .2 via a plastic syringe on an empty stomach every 12 hours. Friday afternoon she began to eat the wet food I gave her so instead of feeding her the anti-nausea medication, I let her eat. She only ate a little. Her condition and overall mood seemed to improve as she began to eat little by little throughout Friday and Saturday. Sunday morning, I received a call from my vet letting me know about the negative test results. I told her how my puppy was doing and she advised that I continue to give her the antacid medication as she was vomiting with foam for another 4 days just in case. That Sunday afternoon, I fed her the medicine and she threw up Sunday evening. She ate a bit and then Monday early morning I gave her the medicine again. Monday afternoon she threw up again. And was reluctant to eat much since Monday night. I called the Vet again Tuesday (today) morning and the vet said to stop the medication and get Gerber baby food in all beef or all chicken - nothing that had vegetables mixed in. I fed this to her this evening and she seemed to be eager to eat it. Maybe too fast as she threw it up almost 10 minutes after she ate it. Now she is sleeping again and reluctant to eat (her last vomit 2 hours ago). What should I do at this point? Should I wait at least a full 6 hours to try feeding her the Gerber food (but in smaller portion) as she seemed to like it or should I feed her something else like plain yogurt (I read that online)?
