Q. Year-old golden doodle vomits a few hours after eating, is extremely thirsty, and very skinny. Large amounts of vomit, a wad of paper was in it.

Answered By

A. It looks like your puppy is eating junk like paper and possibly other stuff. This means he may have a partial obstruction which causes the vomiting. However there are other intestinal diseases which can also cause this, and some hereditary problems. Your pup needs to be examined by a vet who will also do blood tests and possibly radiographs and/or ultrasound to determine the cause.
