This is a little...

This is a little vague but he is 21 weeks and he started jerking his head as if he was going to vomit but didn’t. He is now sleeping but he did it a few mins after the first time as well

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

He is a chiweenie very healthy up to date on shots
