Default Puppy barfed up almost half a meal

Called the E.R. Vet no answer yet, calling again but gunner just puked up half a meal. We feed him according to the bags feeding chart. Royal canin puppy maxi. He's been fine on it for almost 3 or 4 weeks and no issues. Stool are firm and not lightly colored. Plenty of energy and gets excited about his food. But we just walked around outside for a few minutes just now and when we came back in, he puked up a good bit of his dinner. (Ate at 5 and took a nap afterwards) I'm worried something is blocking his digestive system or something. He's pooped fine all day but not since after he ate. Felt around his intestines and didn't feel anything pertruding or hard. He seems fine now but I'm worried still. He's drinking fine and all. Chart on the back of royal canin bag says 4 and 2/3 cups a day For his size, so we divide that into 3 meals. (8-12-5). Too much food? Did his body just reject what it didn't want? Very confused and worried

How old is he?
How much does he weigh?
Has he been dewormed?

Calling the vet is always a safe bet. How old is your dog ... Still a pup?

I remember panicking whenever Jake would get sick when he was a pup. For now I would watch him closely, ensure he stays hydrated and withhold anymore food for the rest of tonight.

I would speak to your vet, but DON"T PANIC.. puppies throw up sometimes for just no reason, especially if he had a big meal ..so again Don't Panic,,but do speak with your vet.

How old is he? I never go by the feeding recommendations on the bag, they usually have you overfeeding...

again, don't panic, just wait till the vet calls back..
