Spice has been sick after the last 3 meals she's had. She eats and literally within 5 mins or less she sicks it back up, almost looking the same as before she ate it.
I kno chis can hav sensitive stomachs, Sugar can't eat beef at all, or too much chicken at one time with out being sick, and she's always been ok by the next day when she's been sick.
So should I be worried or do u think it will pass the same way within a day or so? Should I keep letting her eat or hold off for a bit?
If it helps at all she's just coming 11 weeks and she is 28oz in weight.

I vote call your vet asap. Sounds pretty violent for 11 weeks, and three meals is quite a bit. :(

Good luck! Hope it's transient!

She does eat quite fast and she will eat Sugars food as well if she can. They are both on Hills Science Plan mini puppy, she's been fine on it until today, she was on Royal Canin wen I got her. She seems fine otherwise, still running around and playing?

Might be worth it to try feeding her a tiny meal, and see how it goes. Also, you've switched her food, which might be upsetting her tummy. Have you tried her original food to see how she reacts?

I don't know if I'd wait too long, she is pretty tiny. Is she drinking water? Low blood sugar would be a worry too. I'd try some baby food and see if that stays down. Any of the meat ones would be OK, though I'd start with chicken. Good luck Sue

I would at least call the vet and get some advice sometimes. A call is all it takes. Try giving her 1/2 portions. More often she may. Be eating to fast and not able to digest it as fast as she eats it so smaller meals may help.

Ok so I called my vet, he said to keep trying her on v small meals and also to give her sugar so her blood sugar doesn't get too low, and if she still hasn't kept anything down by the morning to bring her in.
She has had one small meal that she has kept the majority of down, she had about 10 pieces of food and 3 came back up.
Thanks for everyone's comments x

Does she hold on to her water or throw that up to?
How are her stools? Does she have diarrhea or bloody stools?
Is she lethargic? If some of these answers are yes, it could be Parvo.

If I were you I would not wait it out, I'd get her in to the vet's asap.
She is very young. I would not risk waiting with a puppy that age.
From personal experience, things can get ugly real fast.
I don't want to scare you, I just think you are better off being safe than sorry.

I hope with all my heart it is nothing serious and your pup will be ok.

Poor girl. It's good that she's keeping some of the food down, at least. Hope that it's nothing and that she recovers quickly.

Thank u so much for everyone's kind messages :)

Today Spice has been fine thank God, she has kept every meal down.
Her stools were always normal and she was still drinking water, she had no other symptoms other than vomiting, but hasn't vomited since about 6pm yesterday.

So glad little Spice seems to be good as new!! I'm sure you're still keeping a watch on her. Let us know that she continues to hold down what she eats.

Hills isn't the best food on the market...She could have a gluten allergy. I would recommended a cereal free food, such as Orijen, Acana, Applaws or Fish4dogs. I feed a mixture of them all!

It may not be the best food, but it's wat my vet recommended and Sugar does well on it, the vet gave me a sample bag of it when I got her. I haven't heard of any of the foods u have mentioned? Are u in the US?
