Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Good evening, JACustomer. Thanks for your question.Who provided the vaccines and dewormer?Was a fecal exam performed before the dewormer was given?What dewormer was used?Are you seeing any vomiting?How is his appetite?
At this age, we have to be worried about distemper and parvo, but another concern that we can have is that the dewormer may have caused him to become symptomatic because the parasite load he carried was large. Sometimes we can cause the pets to become ill when we deworm them, although this tends to be fairly uncommon in comparison to the risk of parvo and distemper.I would recommend having him examined no later than tomorrow morning and a parvo test performed on the stool along with a fecal exam to determine if there are any parasites present. I recommend this because distemper and parvo can be life threatening and we would be wise to err on the wide of caution in those animals with similar symptoms, such as the suspect bloody stool.Distemper: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+2102&aid=419Parvo: https://www.avma.org/public/PetCare/Pages/canine-parvovirus.aspx
