Customer Question

We live on the UWS of NYC.
On an off for two days our ten week old puppy has had mild diarrhea - what we called "pudding".
He is due to have his 2nd Parvo shot this Saturday and has had very limited interaction with other dogs (he has walked our block to pee / poo outside0
Friends recommended we give him some organic mashed pumpkin to neutralize his tummy.
Tonight he ate it mixed with some white rice.
He threw it up.
He is acting quite normal otherwise, energetic, etc.
I wonder if we need to take him to the emergency room or the vet or give him another day.
Maybe he ate something outside?
