Charlie is going to be 6 months old on the 5th of Oct and he's a mini. He is very food driven and does not miss a meal for any reason. He's also teething and is in much discomfort. Our vet said that it's amplified with smaller breed dogs, well that everything is...they're more dramatic.

We can hear his little tummy gurgling and he threw up a little bit this morning and now he won't touch his breakfast. Any ideas on what to give the little guy for an upset tummy?

If he is teething, check his teeth. He could have a retained baby tooth or a broken one that is infected. I just went through this with Chantel. She was fine two days ago but yesterday she threw up her breakfast, then kept throwing up lots of phlegm. I was very worried and opened her mouth to check her gums to make sure she wasn't anemic and saw that her bottom canine was broken in half and it was turning black. I realized right away that it had to be an infection and the pain that was causing it. I took her to the vet right away, they pulled the tooth and she was immediately back to her normal self. She is on antibiotics because of the infection. So, anyway, one thing you can do is check his mouth for anything wrong with the teeth.

If all is ok in the mouth and he is still acting ill, I would call your vet and ask if they should see him.
Good luck!

Thanks for replying JM! :) My husband looks in his mouth several times a day to see how close he is to losing certain teeth that really seem to be bothering him. He actually jumped back to his normal self about 45 minutes or so after I originally posted. I am so glad that you figured out what was wrong with Chantel! Charlie is about to go get neutered soon and if his teeth are still bothering him by that time, our vet said she would pull them for us.

Glad to hear that Charlie is feeling better. It's always scary when our fur babies get sick or don't feel well, because they can't tell us whats going on with them. Their teeth can cause all types of problems, just like many years ago b-4 real dentists, people even died from infections from bad teeth.
