Customer Question
My 12-week old puppy continues...
My 12-week old puppy continues vomiting and diarreah. I took her to the vet today at 3 p.m. and no parvo, just a small giarda virus. They also gave her b12, but she continues vomiting and diarreah-didn't hold down food or water. What can I do to help her; I'm afraid for her? I've been forcing with a syringe to drink a bit of water (about a teaspoon) ever hour. Anything else I can do?
