Customer Question
We found a young...

We found a young puppy. The man who had the male puppy said that he was a rescued dog. He said that the puppy was 8 weeks old. The pup is very skinny and he won't eat and drinks very little. When he does eat or drink he throws up shortly after. I can't get him into a vet until Thursday of next week. I'm very worried. What can we do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?

No he hasn't eaten anything except hard dog food

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?

The man said he gave him a shot the day before. I don't know what kind. He said he should have his second shot the end of next week and gave my wife the other shot to give him. I'm afraid to do so until we find out what is going on.
