Last night around 4 am my 6 month old maltipoo puppy woke up and threw up. We’ve always known her stomach is on the sensitive side, but we’ve never seen blood. When she threw up it was liquidy yellow bile with specs of blood. it wasnt dried up or anything. Shes really adventurous and loves to sneak off with anything she can find. yesterday she ate a pen and got a hold of the ink tube and kept chewing on that. we dont know if shes throwing up blood because of the pen or something else she ate or because of something more serious. Im a broke minor and my parents are refusing to take her to the vet, but im really worried. Any thoughts?

Yes. If she can't go to the vet, you need to surrender or rehome her to someone who can care for her. To deny medical care in this situation is criminally irresponsible and there is absolutely nothing that anyone on an Internet forum can do to help with this.

I know. I love her with all my heart and my parents do too. theyre just really cheap and dont think it is a good idea. i forgot to mention that shes only thrown up once. my parents said if she throws up again and its worse that they’ll take her.

Put this to them ...often times when you delay going to a vet the problem becomes worse and costs a heck of a lot more.

Sadly vets fees are all part of the budget need to consider when getting a dog.for future reference either get vet insurance or possibly get a special savings account for the vet bills and put a few dollars each week into that account then only touch it if there's an emergency it might at least get you halfway through an expensive bill.

There may be many diagnoses. Definitely the dog needs to be taken to the veterinarian. Tell us how she feels now? Does he feel better?

Shes doing a lot better, she hasnt thrown up blood since. we think it was because of something she ate. I emailed my vet about it and he said to monitor it. So far shes been fine. Shes super energetic and loves to play but ahes been eating less. Were almost 100 percent sure its just because she is a picky eater because she will eat everything and anything unless its her kibble. The only thing thats a little concerning is that when she goes to the bathroom her poop is black sometimes and jm not really sure why. she doesnt have any other symptoms of anything so im thinking it might just be because she eats a bunch of random stuff off the floor?

Black poop often indicates bleeding in the GI tract and is a medical emergency. Time to contact your vet.
