Given the episodic nature of the vomiting, it's important to consider what the specific triggers might be. These could range from dietary indiscretions to stress or even exposure to toxins. The medication "Vh" you mentioned is not clear, and it's important to understand what this medication is for and whether it could be contributing to the symptoms.

The additional issues you've noted, such as diarrhea, lethargy, loss of appetite, and the vague term "Fonl," suggest a systemic problem that could be infectious, toxic, or even related to congenital issues, especially considering the young age of your dog. The fact that these symptoms have been ongoing for a month and are still present is concerning and warrants veterinary attention.

At home, ensure your dog has access to clean water to prevent dehydration, especially if vomiting and diarrhea are present. Monitor your dog's behavior closely; a sudden worsening of symptoms or the development of new symptoms, such as difficulty breathing or collapse, would necessitate immediate veterinary care.

Regarding the vaccinations and preventatives, it's good that your dog has received the DHPP 5-in-1 vaccine and heartworm prevention. These are important in preventing some infectious diseases and parasites. However, they do not protect against all causes of vomiting and diarrhea.
