Three week old puppy is throwing up—advice?
My dog has had a litter of eight puppies on April 8th, 2018. Last week she slowed down on feeding her puppies (about twice a day) so I got replacement milk formula and mixed with baby rice to make up for what mom wasn’t feeding them. This week the puppies are three weeks old so I’ve started them on softened (wet) puppy chow. This morning one of the puppies ate and then threw up quite a bit, but I made sure she had a full tummy before they were finished eating. The second feeding she did the same, but didn’t throw up as much the first time. The mom just nursed them (she will only nurse once a day now) and the same puppy spit up a tiny amount of milk. None of the other puppies have done this, so I don’t think it is the food, but perhaps overeating? I’ve never experienced this before so I don’t know if it should be a concern. Please offer any advice to help! I’m worried about the puppy, and I’d like to do all I can to help her feel better and stop throwing up.
