I have a 3 month old pitbul puppy. About 4 nights ago he

I have a 3 month old pitbul puppy. About 4 nights ago he started having diarrhea. At first it was light then statted getting worse. However he was still acting like his normal self. This morning his stools started hardening up so I thought he was feeling better. Again he was acting normal. Like himself. Still eating and drinking. About 20 mins ago he woke up from his nap and I was about to take him out to go potty then take him for his walk. I ooened his crate and he wouldnt move. Then he vomited. Then he urinated in his crate. Laid back down. And wont move. I want to rush him to an emergancy vet but im not sure if I should move him or if I should wait till tomorrow or what. Im concerened because he has never done this before. He also hasnt defecated all day since this morning and normaly by now he has gone at least 4 times. If not 5. What shoukd I do?

My dog has terminal mammary cancer since last year March.

My dog has terminal mammary cancer since last year March. Hospitals all said she can only live 6 months and chemotherapy will not help her. I went to a holistic vet and she is still here and fighting, but this past month in a half..she is having frequent fevers, this past week she lost alot of her appetite because she has another fever and her tumor has been ulcerating since 3 weeks ago. Today she barely ate her breakfast. Now for dinner she did eat..however she threw up her entire dinner after an hour of eating the food. What do I do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: We took an xray due to her frequent fevers and it's slowly spreading to her lungs. She is on neoplasms medication which I'm supposed to give her 2 times a day but due to her fever and loss of appetite I could not. She had 6 sessions of ozone therapy on her blood 1 month in a half ago. And the doctor did topical blood root on the tumor last week..which is supposed help dissolve the tumor but I feel like its a bigger mass next to where he did it now. Fevers not going down. He told me not to give her anymore antibiotic which is clava moxie I used. She also developed a utility 1 month ago..but I don't know he never followed up with that but she can't hold her urine in. She gets up and she has to pee right awayJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.
