Q. My 4 month old puppy ate 3 "Dream Bone" chees & since doing so she has thrown up 5 times, is lethargic, and has little appetite. Advise please?

A. It sounds as if your puppy ate a lot of rich food, and is likely having some severe digestive distress. It is best to pick up all food for a few hours, and then offer a bland meal of boiled chicken and rice to try and soothe the stomach. If the vomiting continues for more than a day, you see blood in the vomit or diarrhea, or if your dog stops having bowel movements it is best to seek veterinary care as soon as possible to make sure a tear, digestive illness or obstruction has not occurred from eating the large meal.
