Is this Something that can Happen When a Puppy Starts to Teeth?


Here is a question from Yvonne asking other Boston Terrier owners to help her Boston Terrier who is getting sick every now and then.

She says : “Hello. Im from South-Africa and I have a beautiful Boston puppy, only 10 weeks old.

I have been experiencing some concerns. My puppy has been eating normally, playing around, running around like crazy, his mood and personality has been the same, but every now and then he will through up and have running stomach.

I did a bit of google searching, and majority say it can happen when dog starts to teeth. I would like to know if other boston terrier puppy owners have also experienced this? “

Does anyone have any advices and/or experiences?

Omg, so cute as babies!

Same as a teething baby

I’ve had 6 Boston puppies through my life and every one of them has had different everything. Your baby is beautiful ❤️

Does anyone know how i can fix my boston terriers ear? Ear tapping? His right ear

Sharon Lovelace

Please leave it alone. If it doesn’t change will be part of his personality.

I put a stick for ear cleaning.

Our Boston had her ear hanging. As soon as she had her teeth changed, the ear stood up right!

Joel Perez

Corrine Mosselman wow ok! So you think I should wait until he stops teething? His only 11 weeks old.

I think it has more to do with a puppy that is so excited to play all of the time, that they eat and drink too fast and then go right back to running around and all of the sudden their lunch comes back up. I wouldn’t worry too much as long as it is only happening occasionally. If it starts to become more often or you are more concerned about it, call your veterinarian.

Be very careful about letting your Boston Terrier ( or any dog) from eating a big meal and then running, jumping and romping. They can actually twist their stomach when it’s full completely around. This results in cutting off the blood supply to the stomach ( a major organ). It is fatal if not surgically repaired immediately!! I was a vet tech for 15 years. We lost several wonderfully healthy patients who came in too late. Symptoms are vomiting, not eating lying down, rapid, shallow , breathing. If you suspect this is happening, you can not get to the.

Are you sure he is teething? Perhaps you should start looking at the kind of food your feeding him. It might not agree with him. We had this problem with one of our Boston’s. It stopped after we changed his food.

Catherine Woolford Hoffman

I would think if this were the case that it would happen all of the time, and not on occasion. Just a thought.

Laura Westerhouse Skorczewski

Catherine, Yes. You’re right. I misread.

Catherine Woolford Hoffman

Have a great day Laura. I hope I didn’t come across as brash.

Laura Westerhouse Skorczewski

No you didn’t, not at all.

Seems to me 10 weeks is a little bit early to start changing teeth?!

Diane Harris

Mine didnt throw up with teething .very naughty at chewing other stuff .like cabbles plastic boxes . When older .grown out of that .thank goodness did get car sick .but so far been better .dont feed her before travelling long way .

Deborah Ruelle

At what age did yours outgrow chewing things up? I had two 13 yr old Boston’s that never chewed anything they shouldn’t. I now have one that is 9 months old and chews everything he can get ahold of. Eek 😬

Diane Harris

About 2 .

For young baby bostons they say don’t let them do to much when there growing all the time, I’ve only had three but after meals they don’t normally want to go out for 30 mins.

Danielle Melville

Mine did for a while but i thought it was down to her running and jumping about so much. I used to put her in her crate after meals so her food would get time to settle.

Claire Kirk

Danielle you love her😍

I do shes a wee dote when shes all calm 😍
