My 7week tomorrow old puppy has thrown up 3-4 times today,

Customer Question

Hi my 7week tomorrow old puppy has thrown up 3-4 times today, has bloodshot eyes and is very lethargic. He currently is still on puppy milk and barely eats any solids, he does not drink water at all.
I fed him a bit of milk and some wet food which he ate out of my hand as he wasn't really able to get up. He is now sleeping.
Should I take him to the vet like now or should I wait till the morning?
Thanks ūüėĒ

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he been showing signs?

What is he bringing up in his vomit?

Can he keep any fluids down?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
