Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am sorry to hear you are worried about CJ's pregnancy. Vomiting and not eating is not normal, so I am worried about her. She may just be vomiting due to the size of her abdomen, but usually at 5 weeks the puppies are not big enough to cause this; that usually happens in just the last week or so. At 5 weeks, the puppies would not be very big, only a couple of inches each.

Has it been confirmed she is pregnant? I ask because a dog her age is at risk for an infection of the uterus that can also enlarge her belly and make her look pregnant. If she has a pyometra (infected uterus) that could make her vomit and not eat.

If you lift her lip and check her gums, are they pink in color or do they seem pale?

Little pink. She is throwing up and it looks like poo not biel

If you are worried about her and her puppies, I would have her checked as soon as possible. I am very worried by your description of her condition.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

You can try withholding food, offering only clear liquids, and seeing if some Pepcid AC (famotidine) helps with the vomiting, but it sounds like she needs to be examined by a veterinarian to see if she is pregnant and to be sure she does not have a pyometra.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

A pyometra can be a life threatening infection.
