Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to help you. Vomiting in a puppy is usually a pretty serious problem. Causes include parasites, foreign body ingestion and Parvovirus. With any of these potential causes your puppy should be seen tonight at an ER because all of these are serious and can result in death if not addressed in time. In addition, puppies can get dehydrated very quickly and this can lead to body electrolyte abnormality which can also result in death. So you need to locate the closest ER and take your baby in now. I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB
