I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Samba. How long has he been throwing up this liquid?

Any diarrhea?

Is he eating, and drinking?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Is there any diarrhea?

Since I can't see and examine him, it will help to know these things. If you lift his lip to check his gums, are they pink or do they seem pale?

his gums are pink
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Good his gums are pink. Is he eating, and drinking? Any diarrhea?

There are so many things that can make a puppy vomit: viral infections, something he ate, an intestinal blockage from eating a toy or a sock. Many times, this gets better on its own after a day or so but if it persists, or if he can't drink or eat and hold it down, it may be more serious.

Has he had his vaccinations?

Yep , all his shot are on time
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Eating and drinking normally
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

That is all good. Are you sure she is not coughing up this liquid, you are sure she is vomiting? It looks a lot alike, but coughing comes from the lungs and respiratory tract, vomiting from the digestive tract. She could be coughing, if all she brings up is some clear liquid.

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Sorry, said she instead of he!

If his gums are pink, and he is eating, he is not in immediate danger.

Are you still there? Can I answer anything else?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I have not heard back from you; how is Samba doing?

Please let me know if my answer was helpful and if I can answer anything else about him.
