Hi JACusomter, thanks of your question. How is treatment going thus far? Are you seeing improvements in the vomiting/diarrhea symptoms?What treatments have they been doing? IV fluid therapy? injectable antibiotics? Anti-emetics? Do you know what's being used? Did he have any other problems, such as intestinal parasites?
