Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am currently not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Did you take his rectal temperature? If so, what was it?
Friend, it is contraindicated to give such a young puppy medications like Tylenol or any other type of non steroidal anti inflammatory. Do Not give him Tylenol.
A dog's normal temperature is between 99.5-102.5 F, our temperature is 98.6 F. So, upon touch a dog will always feel warm to us. The only way to rule in a fever is by taking a rectal temperature.
I would recommend you keep him on the medications prescribed by family veterinarian. Instead of feeding him cheerios give him a bland diet of rice and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef. If possible blend the food and force feed him small amounts with a dropper every 4-6 hours. Follow up with family vet in the morning if he is not doing better.
