I have a 5 month old dalmatian, I took him to a vet because he had one bloody stool and threw up they diagnosed him with Parvo. I never saw the parvo test but they did go over his blood work with me and they told me that his white blood count was elevated. He showed some inflammation in his intestine which they said was gastritis. He wasn't lethargic he had plenty of energy prior to the appointment he ate breakfast that morning and kept it down his bowel moment prior to going to the clinic was fine just a little wet. I went ahead and had the treatments done on my puppy which was subcutaneous fluids vitamin b-12 vitamin B Metoclopramide and penicillian injections that he went to clinic to recieve at first they said he only needed two treatments but ended up getting 4 I couldn't afford their in hospital stay or i would of gone that route. But my question now is does this sound correct? Everything i have read says he would of had a low white blood count and wouldnt of wanted to play wouldnt of wanted to eat. He seemed fine throughout the whole treatments and was even hyper during them I read that he will test positive for a month after diagnosis and was wondering if i should get him tested again for Parvo because i really think i might of just paid for a treatment he didnt need

He's vomited a few times - white, frothy vomit - and hasn't been able to defecate. He has had no appetite. Won't even eat treats. Other than that, he's been his normal lively self. I haven't checked his temperature but he doesn't appear to be febile. This has been going on for about 2 days now.JA: I'm sorry to hear that.

Team, Are you able to access prior questions? My 9 week old

Team,Are you able to access prior questions? My 9 week old petite golden doodle has had diarrhea all day. He has been needing to go ever 15-20 minutes, and just threw up what looked to be treats from this mornings training session where we took him on a walk feeding him 10-12 mini "training treats". I would like to know if this is serious. He has not eaten or had any water in the last 6 hours. I had spoke to Rebecca earlier if you can access the question log.
