vaccines no blood and no diarrhea
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Okay good!

Acute gastritis and dietary indiscretion/foreign body are highest on my list

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
He ate a little yesterday but threw it up but its been about 3 days sense he really ate
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Okay

I am fairly worried here

This is one time that I need to recommend examination

They should test for parvovirus and x-ray abdomen for possible foreign body

Can give fluids and anti-vomit drugs at same time

Can you take him in?

I also have his sister and mom and dad and they are not sick..
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Yes

It may not be parvovirus but that is one of the possibilites here

And dietary indiscretion/foreign body are also possible

Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

If it is parvovirus or a foreign body yes

If it is something less serious then no
