Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry that your question has gone so long unanswered, but I think I know why. Based on your description, your puppy is very very ill. It's unlikely that there's anything that you can do at home to make a meaningful difference in his condition if he is as ill as you say. It's likely that the other experts were reluctant to tell you this bad news, but I don't want you to continue to be left hanging without any response. How is he doing today?
