I have 12 week yorkiepoo puppy. Last night she dry heaved at

I have 12 week yorkiepoo puppy. Last night she dry heaved at 230 and vomited yellow mucus at 430 the emergency vet said to withhold food and water for 6-8 hours. I did so then gave her 1/4 c water and she drank a little. Her gums were pale and I was worried about her blood sugar so o dabbed honey on my finger and she ate it. An hour later she vomited a much smaller amount of yellow mucus foam. 45 minutes later I got her to drink a little water and made boiled chicken and rice she started chewing down. I pulled it up after she ate some because I'm worried she will eat a ton and get sick againJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: She did have coccidia at the start of the month treated with albon. Her stools are back to normal except for last night before she heaved, it was soft. Also now her ears are slightly cool to touch on outer edge

I have a 3 month old baby blue French bulldog. Since I got

Hello there,I have a 3 month old baby blue French bulldog. Since I got her she has had soft stool, I thought it was just from the stress of leaving her mama and siblings. But as I have had her, her soft stools have turned into mucous diarrhea with bright red blood. I have taken her to the vet, she tested positive for giardia and went on 2 rounds of Metrodiazonol and an anti diarrhea med. She now tests negative. I also had a DNA test that tested for other parasites, parvo and such. All negative. The medication did not seem that it has helped. Now she is on tylosin for the next 14 days....05mL 1 x daily. Her stool is soft for potties directly after meals but then they get runner and runner each poo with blood. I have her on a rx diet food called I.D. chicken the vet recommended. She is hydrated and eating well, but she sleeps a lot. She is still very playful at times, but it is now going on 3 weeks of diarrhea this and it is starting to worry me. Do u have any suggeations?

I am with a canine rescue and coccidia is very common. We used the SMZ and Albon and it is like giving them water...I switched to Marquis and it has been great. Just wanted to get your opinion on how to mix. I saw you can have it compounded. Can you tell me the formula for compounding? The marquis has saved many puppy lives for us.

Questions you might consider asking
  • I have a male german shepherd about 3 years old who just acts like he don't feel well. nothing in particular seems to be wrong with him, just mopes around a lot and has been doing this for a month or so. I was wanting to know if I should give him some albon and see if this helps him.
  • Id Di Methox safe for my puppies and how much do I give to rid them of coccidian.. Albon is too expensive.
  • I am a breeder and one of my puppies is going on a flight to its destination, is there something other than albon that i can give my 8 week old puppy
