My 19 week old puppy threw up her breakfast this morning,

Customer Question
Hello! My 19 week...

Hello! My 19 week old puppy threw up her breakfast this morning, and has thrown up 2 times since. I do not think she has gone poop today, and she did have trouble going yesterday, as it was stuck.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?

She has continued to drink water, however shown little interest in her food (which is dry kibble). She also has been a bit lethargic. What is the best course of action until Monday, when our local vet opens?
Thank you for your time.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the puppy's name?

Nyx She hasn't eaten anything unusual that we are aware of (she's sneaky sometimes)

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?

She did snag some of the cat's wet food this morning. She's about 17 pounds currently, and has always been a picky eater

What does the vomit look like?

Is she straining to pass stool?

Which sign started first?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
