If my dog ate something bad and now puppies are sick could it be what she ate?

Hello. Dr Sheree here to help with your questions.

Yes, it could be something Jazz ate. It could also be something more serious. Can you tell me about Jazz's vaccination history?

She is current

The mother Jazz can pass roundworms through her milk to the puppies and I recommend dewroming puppies as young as 2,4 and 6 weeks with pyrantel poamate (Nemex, Evict, Strongid). It is very safe. They may have a virus that will have to run it's course. Make sure they are nursing. If they continue to vomit, they may need subcutaneous fluids by a veterinarian.
