Vomiting puppy

We have a puppy aged 15 weeks. She’s been on the same good quality dry food that breeder used.
On Friday night she was randomly sick. Just food cane up. It had been an exciting and tiring day so I put it down to that. On Tuesday lunchtime she was sick. Again just food brought up. She had been to my Mums for the morning for the first time. Last night was sick again, just food.
She only gets her food and random treats for weeing /pooing outside but will eat anything she can find. We watch her all the time but if she finds anything small on the floor she tries to eat them.
She’s not acting unwell at all. Happy and relaxed, no swollen tummy,wee and poo is normal. I would take her to the vets but I don’t see what they would do or say.
Any advice?

Is she eating the food too quickly? Maybe try a slow feeder bowl?
It is probably because she eats things she shouldn't and hopefully she grows out of it soon smile

Sickness in a young puppy should always be checked out - they can go downhill very quickly at that age. I'm sure she's absolutely fine but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Can you check whether she's dehydrated? Lift the skin on the back of her neck and see if it "snaps back" - if the skin remains raised then it's a sign of dehydration and she definitely needs to be seen sooner rather than later.

If it's a case of her eating too quickly, a slow feeder, snuffle mat or kong would be a good idea to slow her down, but please do get her checked. They eat all sorts at that age and you don't want her to have a blockage.

Good luck! smile
