Question
i have a 11 week old puppy that threw up for two days and now she doesn't want to eat anything. All she does is lay around. What can be wrong with her?

Answer
In a puppy that young, I always think of parvovirus.  Has she been vaccinated?  Other things that can cause that include other virus infections, intestinal worms, and even something foreign that she may have eaten. She needs to be checked by your vet.
