Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Jaeger is sick. I don't think you should wait any longer before getting him to the vet since it has already been 24 hours since he ate. In a puppy with his signs, I would be most concerned about parvovirus, which requires aggressive treatment. So I would get him in for an exam and test for parvovirus, as well as fluid therapy and anti-nausea medication. I am concerned about dehydration if you wait any longer.
