There are a few things that you can try at home. First, a dose of famotidine daily can help to calm his stomach. Dosing info here: This should reduce the vomiting you're seeing. Second, change his diet to something bland like boiled chicken breast and rice for a few days. This should improve his stool. If he was not vaccinated as a puppy by your veterinarian, he's still within the age of risk to have parvo, distemper, etc. Therefore, if the home medications don't help, it would be recommended to have him seen by your vet for injectable medications that can stop the nausea/vomiting and help get him back to eating normally again and producing normal stool. You should see improvements within 24 hours with the information contained herein. If there's anything else I can help you with today, just let me know. Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to issue a rating for me so that I am compensated for helping you today. Best of luck!
