Withhold all food until tomorrow. Only give small amounts of water. We need the stomach to rest. You can give 1/4 of a 10 Pepcid AC to stop the vomiting. Tomorrow we will start a bland diet of skinless chicken breast 1 part boiled to 3 parts white rice. You can add a Teaspoon full of Pure canned pumpkin to the mixture and feed in small increments throughout the day. This is a bland diet and should help. I would get the puppy in for a Parvo test asap. Even with vaccines, it is possible to contract Parvo. Right now short of seeing a ER Vet, all you can so is supportive care and rest the stomach. I do urge you to have the Puppy seen asap. We cannot recommend Prescription medications for a situation like this. Only after a hands on exam can a Vet give medication legally.
