Hi there!

Few questions for you:

1. How long has this been going on?
2. When was the last time he ate?
3. What food do you feed him?
4. What does his stool look like?
5. How is he acting otherwise?

Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that your little pup hasn't been feeling well.

With a puppy that small, I would consider it an emergency if he's not able to keep any food or water down. I know it's been a whole day since you posted, so please let us know if you still need help. I understand if you might not. However, if you're waiting for a response and he's still not eating and not able to keep anything down, I would suggest taking him to a veterinary emergency clinic ASAP.

Let me know if you still need help

~Dr. Sara
