Hi there. Thanks for the question. Im sorry to hear your puppy isn't feeling well. It sounds like your puppy might have gastritis...either severe inflammation or infection. He may also have a fever. You can check his temp using a human digital thermometer. Wet or lube it using Vaseline and inert gently into the rectum. If his temp is greater than 102 F then it is a fever And he needs to get to a vet asap. If no fever, try giving 5mg of Pepcid AC and feed a small amount of very wetted down soupy food. If he continues to vomit or will not eat or drink, then you need to get the puppy in to see a vet. Such a young puppy can get dehydrated and fatally sick very quickly. Best of luck. I hope this helps.
