Dog just threw up and I don't know if contents should concern me

My dog has been doing great since changing his diet to home-cooked meals, about 3/4 to a cup twice a day. He used to vomit quite frequently and I've determined that it had to do with his diet as he apparently didn't tolerate the low quality dog food well.

But I just woke up (it's almost 6 in the morning) to him vomiting and I inspected the vomit. Mostly dog hair from the other dog we have, but some human hair, inside is a tiny piece of plastic about 3mm in diameter, circular, and a tiny piece of cloth, rectangular, about 2mm by 5mm. (These are guesstimates. I didn't use a ruler.)

My dog is a 15 month old 10-pound Pomeranian male who is fixed. He lives with me, spending the daytime while I'm at work at my moms house, where I have two young adult sisters, and they have two adult Pomeranians, female, fixed.

Should I be concerned or relieved? I figured he was consuming (actually swallowing) an inedible here and there so I'm glad they came out rather than causing harm but I'm not with him 24/7 so I don't know when these were swallowed, especially since he spends the daytime in my sisters room with the other dogs while I'm at work (and she does a crappy job dog proofing and refuses to listen to me about it).

Should I save it and show a vet? I can't really afford to see a vet right now. My income is very low (I'm a student who had to move back in at home, WITH MY HUSBAND, who's also a student) and I planned to see the doctor for myself next week.

Please give me suggestions, as my family has stopped listening to my concerns about my dog and I feel like I've hit a wall.

Your dog should absolutely see a vet because you don't know if he got all of the stuff out or if it caused any internal damage.

No one here can offer you any medical advice as it is against the rules of our forum. Additionally, I would caution you to accept medical advice from the internet.

Good luck
