Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to help you.....
Probably the most important thing to know is to never ever give OTC vaccines.....I have seen this make so many puppies sick over my 28 years. This is because these companies that sell these OTC don't have any strick rules or regulations about how long these vaccine sit on floor before they are refrigerated. Vet clinics are anal about this because they are inspected by the Veterinary Medical Board...... so, you need to take your puppy to the vet because this could be early Parvo or some other GI virus.....this is not a handle at home situation. The other thing important to know is that Parvo in early stages can look like a fairly benign disease and the only way to rule it out is with a Parvo test and a complete blood count and even that sometimes can be wrong.....so see your vet asap.

Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have. ( You can rate me at top right of page).
Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
