What should I do
Expert:  Dr. Loretta replied 11 months ago.

Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry that Jax is not feeling well. The fact that Jax had a wormer 4 days ago, there is a chance that he had a large amount of parasites and this could cause an intestinal disturbance or even an obstruction. For now, supplement Jax with Nutrical, available at the pet store, and give a dose every 4 hrs. Also, give Jax a few cc's of Pedialyte, available at the store, to be sure Jax remains hydrated. If this continues into tomorrow, take Jax to the vet to be sure that it is not an obstruction. With most of obstructions, Jax would eb vomiting also so , as long as he remains normal, you can wait.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
