My 7weeks Maltese poodle...

My 7weeks Maltese poodle puppy whines after eating. He would gurgitate and you can see bubbles or foam around his mouth. He whines for about 20-30 mins. If we put him on our lap he'll calm down and sleeps. Odd thing is for his age he's not active or playful

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the puppy. What is the dog's name?

Sky

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

We adopted him, they said he's 8 weeks but i think he's younger about 6-7, maybe even 5 weeks. He doesn't run, he wobbles around. I don't know if having a laminate or tiles flooring causing him to be slipper. He's very fragil, very small and week compare to other puppy at 8 weeks.

Hi, Dr. W here. I'm sorry to hear this :(

The first thing I would think of in a7 wee k old puppy with an upset stomach after eating is stomach worms. Has he been dewormed yet?

They stated that he has shots and dewormed. And we have the records they gave use. How can we check if he’s dewormed?

Okay that's good, how long ago was that?

The records show that he was vaccinated (22nd) day prior we got the puppy (23rd). Theres 2 stamps/tags for Sterile diluent & Canine distemper-adenovirus type2-parainfluenza-parvovirus vaccine

So for this age of puppy with one set of puppy shots there are a couple of top priority things that could cause vomiting. One is stomach worms, but he has already been dewormed. If he was dewormed recently (within the past week, which he was on the 22nd) the stomach upset could be from the worms dying and should go away on it's own quickly. The other one to consider is parvo. A puppy is not considered protected against parvo until AT LEAST 30 days after the second puppy parvo shot.

So if the vomiting continues beyond 24 hours, if he seems to become more depressed, or develops diarrhea, he should be seen right away for a parvo test.

To help him now at home, you can offer Pedialyte for hydration, electrolyte balance, and to keep his blood sugar up and some canned pumpkin (a teaspoon or so) to help settle his stomach. At this young age it is important that he has some calories going in every 4 hours, so he either needs to be drinking pedialyte or eating a small amount every 4 hours.
