    hi and welcome! I'm glad you joined hopefully we can give you the help you need He could be having a bad reaction to the inoculations or the worms are making him throw up. you may want to cal the vet and see what they have to say about it. I don't know how serious an allergic reaction would be so I'll leave that up to other chaz members to tell you. I hope everything turns out to be ok and you get the help you need. Keep us updated! :)

    If he keeps throwing up you need to take him to the vet. It could be something besides a reaction to his shots. Is he a rescue pup or did you get it from a breeder? If you got him from a breeder there shouldn't have been worms or ear mites. Poor baby boy. I hope he gets better soon.

    Welcome to Chazhound.

    It is always best to place your questions in the necessary forums.. health.. puppy, etc.. so that your question gets addressed as soon as possible.

    Good luck to you and your pup. I hope all gets better soon.

    at 10 weeks he probably can't make it through the night without going to the bathroom yet. You should not go to him when he whines, try to take him out before he starts whining or wait for a break in the whining to let him out. Like buddy's parents said, you should ask about it in the proper section (training) so more people will see it.
