Customer Question
My puppy has had...

My puppy has had diarrhea for the past two days and is now wide eyed and restless. His pupils are dilated and will not drink water. He is 3 months old and is slightly moaning. He will not open his mouth. Are these symptoms of poison or toxicity?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what your puppy ate?

No. I have no idea what he could have gotten in to.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your puppy?

He is u responsive to his name. He's just staring into the water bowl with his paw inside.

Dewormed?

He hasn't gotten any shots yet, he's a stray. He's about 10 weeks old. He is surrounded by two other dogs who are current on shots
There is no blood in stools and has not been dewormed. His stools looked like mucus.

Thanks.

I am really worried about parvovirus.

This is a very aggressive viral infection that affects puppies between 8 and 16 weeks of age mainly

There may also be an issue with internal parasites

I am sorry to have to say this but he needs to go to the ER tonight

He is very sick

Are you able to take him in?

Paul
