Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.
I'm sorry to hear about your puppy. It sounds like you may be dealing with Parvo
Virus. This is a common virus that infects puppies. It leads to vomiting, diarrhea, anorexia, lethargy and secondary infections. Unfortunately, the chance of survival without any care is < 20%.
The only thing you can do at home, is try to manage the vomiting and get fluids into him. You could use an over the counter antacid like Pepcid AC (Famotidine
). You can give 10 mg every 12 hours. I would also try to syringe feed him every 4 hours. He'll still vomit, but at least you'll get some fluids in. The reason these puppies die is from dehydration and secondary infections.
If you can get to a vet for IV fluids, or at least Sub Q fluids, that would be ideal.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
