Q. My 8 week old puppy threw up her puppy chow for the first time and later threw up brown liquid. What does that mean?

Answered By

A. The food may not agree with her digestive system. You may need to seek out a better food that does well with her. Each dog's digestive system is different and not all foods agree with all dogs. It could also mean she has an obstruction if it continues. I would seek vet care if it happens more because I would be suspicious of a foreign body at that point.
