Sonya had an awful night

So last night was Sonyas third night with us and bedtime started like normal. But at about 2:30, she started dry heaving. I took her out and she went to the bathroom. When we came back in, I put her in bed with us and she was shaking and breathing like she was in pain. She did this for the next 2 hours. She kept moving and trying to get comfortable and we stayed awake to watch her. She finally fell back asleep and was up at 6. It's about 7:30 now and she seems fine. She got up, ate, played, went to the bathroom and is now sleeping in my lap. I don't know what was wrong with her. She eats great dog food, we do no grain, my other dog has allergies. I also don't think she got ahold of anything else to eat since she's always watched. I'm calling the vet this morning, hopefully he will see her today. I felt like a new mom again with a sick baby last night. The way she was being was just heart breaking. Anyone else have this sort of thing happen?

better safe than sorry so good thing you are taking her to the vet, they need their puppy exam anyways when you first bring them home. It could that she is getting used to her new environment and just adjusting. Good luck and hope all is well.

my 13 week old pup sometimes chucks up in the morning. Vet said nothing to worry about for us. It Could be she needed to pee and was holding on to long didnt want to disturb you. They are so smart. . Was she hot? To breathe heavily . . I dont have as much experience as some people. So maybe wait for a better answer? Go with your gut feeling. . this all said is my experience not speaking as a vet or like i know what Im on about. Just what i have been threw and what our vet said. Not everything is an obstruction. Remember that.

How did she travel to you?..
My dog did the exact same, it was because he had a long drive home
(4-5hours) and just adapting to suddenly being in a new place. it only
happened the one night but was horrible because you cant do anything!
This is what the vet said for my dog, so seeing the vet is a good thing !

-She is Gorgeous btw.. :-)!

If my dog was dry heaving, seemed to be in pain and could not get comfortable for a period of several hours, I would be at the e-vet with him--those can be symptoms of bloat, which can be rapidly fatal if left untreated. Check out this webpage: Bloat In Puppies

I'm glad to hear she seems to be OK, so I guess my knee jerk diagnosis is incorrect and you probably would have been out some money if you followed my advice--but to me it is better to be safe than sorry.

I may be over-reacting, because I have a dog who bloated and needed emergency surgery within about three hours of the onset of his symptoms. He made it through, but we were lucky because many dogs don't.

We went to the vet today and found out she has hookworms. The vet said she didn't look anemic, so that's good, but it's whats making her not feel bad. She woke up this morning and seemed fine but she's slept for most of the day. She slept through her whole appointment. The vet gave her medicine there and more for at home. She gets checked again in 3 weeks. This really sucks but I'm so glad it's not something worse!

We have had Elijah for a week now. We took him for his vet check on Tues and he found hook worms (two eggs under microscope). He hasn't had a solid movement yet
Think it's been the rabis, panacure, water, and new house.
But he has been one hell of a trooper.

Blessings & Prayers
