Q. My 9wk old puppy was given to us 4days ago full of worms I dewormed him 2 days ago he was pukin yellow bile all day and wnt eat barley drink

A. What did you use to deworm him? It sounds like it is either a bad reaction to the medication or a harsh reaction to having all the worms die at once inside him. I recommend bringing him to the vet as soon as possible to figure out what's going on and treat it. He'll need intravenous or subcutaneous fluids to rehydrate himself after all that vomiting, too.
