Hi, i`m Richard, a Veterinarian from the UK. Hopefully I can help today.
Has Cooper had any deworming treatment recently?
OK, any diet change recently?
I`m afraid I am unable to offer a live phone call from the UK, but I am happy to continue here. if you would prefer, I can opt out and one of the other vets may be able to offer this service?
before he poops?
if he has not had any worm treatment for a few months that would be a good place to start. I recommend worming pups monthly until they are 6 months old, then every 3 months from there.
Feeding a light diet for the next few days while the worming treatment is taking effect can help things settle down too - plain boiled chicken and rice, a little scrambled egg, plain white fish or light cottage cheese.This can help take the strain off an irritated stomach and help things settle down.
You should be seeing an improvement over the next few days. At that point, you can start to re-introduce his normal food.
If he continues to vomit or if you are not seeing an improvement in the diarrhea over the next 3 days, I would recommend having him checked over by your vet.
