This pup is crated from 7-6 then again at night?
Is there anyone home during the day to monitor his actions?
Could he be freaking out all day in his crate and then having horrible stress again at night?

I feel bad that he's so restricted for so long.

Just a guess.

No I can't just take him to work everyday, we have a business to run and it isn't possible for me to take up a cage that a emergency or sick animal needs.
I think this is getting out of hand from what I originally was asking about. Thank you all for the help and responses but we will get through what ever is going on.

Not a good idea to bring a young pup to a veterinarian clinic. Working at one for years, can verify this. Too much unknown illness floating around.

I honestly don't think he's eating enough, and that is probably the issue. I also think he may have issues with the crate. Try setting up a camera and recording one day away to see how he handle being caged.

He is getting a lot of dry dog food but not the water to digest it. Too much food at one time, not enough water. He sounds like he is miserable all night until he vomits. How does he get water during the day? Any chance the same thing may be happening while you are gone at work only, like a typical dog, he eats his vomit?

I guess you said you were gone from 7 to 6. What is the pup doing then? Where is he? You did not say he was crated then.

Another thing -- there are water buckets and even bowls that attach to the crate to keep from spilling. I did that for my puppy. Even though he peed in the crate for the first week or two, he was still potty trained quickly and rapidly. Couldn't leave him so long without water...

I am going to assume the puppy has to be barricaded in a room or outside in a pen and not crated all day after re-reading the post?

How about something like this - though you would have to build a plywood box with a hole to access the food or something strong to hold it and keep the puppy from having a new play toy but you could....as a way to spread out his meals?
