Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
He appears to be breaking with a condition called hemorrhagic gastroenteritis which is actually an umbrella term that refers to a number of infectious and non-infectious causes and that typically lasts less than 1 week in duration. This is a syndrome mainly found in smaller dogs weighing less than the general hospital population. Which breed is your dog, please?
Most important, this syndrome dehydrates and leaves my patient electrolyte imbalanced quickly and so it's important to have him attended to by a vet at your earliest convenience.
