Hi I am Dr. Denney. I am Currently reviewing your post now. Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question.
I would avoid the raw food for now since it sounds like his upper gastrointestinal tract is inflamed. How do his gums looks and feel? Is Klaus drinking water?
any chance he could have swallowed something he was not supposed to like a sock, toy etc?
We can try giving him some oral antacid (Pepsid plain). What is his approximate weight?
Then to make sure his electrolytes are ok we can add in chicken broth to his water.
Did he swallow it?
Thats good. Puppies can eat things which can cause blockages and require possible surgery or hospitalization to get them to pass it.
How much does he weigh approximately so I can get you a Pepsid (over the counter antacid) to try with Klaus.
Hopefully this is just some mild tummy upset from something he ingested.
So we can give him 30 mg of Pepsid (generic drug name is ***** ***** you can find it at any drug store over the counter) he can have another dose in 12 hours (tonight) then I would just offer boiled chicken and rice tonight in a small amount.
If Klaus is not eating by tomorrow morning we will need to get him examined by your regular veterinarian to get this figured out
Let me know how he does. If he develops any vomiting today or tonight then I would go ahead and get him an appointment for tomorrow
