Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Captain has been vomiting. The faster breathing and moaning are signs of pain, which, since he is also vomiting, is probably abdominal pain. Abdominal pain and vomiting can be caused by a few different things, such as a GI blockage resulting from a foreign body being lodged in the intestines. Have you ever seen Captain try to eat things he shouldn't? Another cause of pain and vomiting in a young dog is pancreatitis, or inflammation of the pancreas. I recommend getting Captain to the vet for an abdominal x-ray and blood test for pancreatitis, as well as some pain medication.
