I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner, Shalene. Did his brother vomit and have diarrhea prior to dying? Is Monster vomiting and having diarrhea? Are these puppies vaccinated? Did his brother see a vet? If so, was a diagnosis given for him? You can't know how to stop this if you don't know what you're treating and to know that you'll need a vet's help. My primary concern is the lethal parvovirus or canine distemper virus.

Please respond with the additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi Shalene Red Bird,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Monster. How is everything going?
