I am sorry to hear Fimmy is not doing well.

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Has he had a stool check done by a vet recently and has he had his required vaccines?

After trying to eat and done throwing it up, it seemed he passed out for a sec
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 11 months ago.

I see.

He should not be throwing up that much. Puppies can decline very rapidly when having vomiting or any upset stomach. I also don't like that he seems like he might be passing out. This can potentially be due to very severe dehydration.

Your dog could have an infectious/inflammatory cause of the vomiting, this could be parasites, or this could be a foreign object sitting in the GI tract. Since he is a puppy and he is very sick, I would recommend having him seen by a vet this morning. You are not going to be able to give any oral meds that are going to help if he is vomiting.
