Customer Question

Our puppy is a 10 wk old Bichon Frise. We bought him from a breeder at 9 wks. He got a sick stomach on the ride home and vomited 1x a little yellow bile. He wasn't wanting to eat so we took him to the vet. Our vet seemed great. He spent 2 nights there. The vet gave him an xray and decided he needed an enema.He was drinking milk when we brought him home. Every day or so he would vomit his food after several minutes. He was also having some loose stools with an occasional solid stool. We have stayed in contact with our vet but he has admitted he is puzzled. we are presently tube and bottle feeding a mixture of formula and chicken baby food. Plus the medicine the vet has him on which is pepto bismal with albon in it 2x a day. His stools are getting more firm and he hasn't vomited. However, tonight he is not wanting to walk. he was drinking water and laid down to drink. what can we do?

Check his gums and see if they are pink and moist?

I'm sorry but I'm not able to make a phone call consultation. But if he isn't able to stand, if definitely recommend getting him in to see a vet ASAP as it could be something very serious. Good luck with him. Take care.
