A. Severe vomiting especially with a reduced thirst is very serious in young puppies and you should arrange an urgent assessment for him - be sure to take his vaccination records with him to his appointment. Foreign bodies/parasites/infections are all concerns in young pups with severe vomiting and dehydration can develop very quickly in this age group
