Q. 4 wk old pup in the im weaning and she has vomit her mothers milk 3x in the last few days. Not every feed. Never vomit the puppy food. Is this normal?

Answered By

A. It may happen if, for example if the puppy drinks too much milk from mum. Puppies tend to vomit more than older dogs so I would suggest to wait and see how the puppy is getting on. You should monitor how often she is vomiting, if she is strong and active, if she is putting on weight etc. If you have any concerns you should take her to your vets for examination.
