1880256 tn?1322573508 His stool is now more firm,but still slightly soft. He is eating better,and drinking. Plus he is playing more too,but I am still a little concerned. The flu has been going around in our house for a couple of weeks now.So I am thinking he has a touch of it too. Is there anything I can give him to help him feel better? And we have not changed his diet at all.

Avatar n tn My puppy is a springer spaniel lab mix. she is about 5 or 6 months old and she is not eating, she wont come to me and she just wants to drink water. What is wrong with her?
Avatar n tn If your dog was an adult, you could wait it out a few days...With a puppy, you CANNOT! Not eating is one thing, but not drinking is another...Is he drinking? Dehydration can cause a puppy to go downhill quickly.....Vomiting &/or Diarrhea in a puppy needs to be checked out by a Vet ASAP..... Dehydration in a puppy this young can happen in 24hrs. and can be fatal....I'm not trying to scare you, but to emphasise that this could turn into a medical emergency (If not already).....
Avatar m tn also you need her to start drinking you said she eating try putting water in her dry food or put sodium free chicken broth in her water 1-2 tbs.
1812469 tn?1316617088 At the vet's the puppy can be put into isolation or in an area with other parvo dogs to keep the infection under control. Gatorade is fine as long as the puppy is eating and drinking on his own, however if he gets sick to the point where he isn't eating OR drinking, Gatorade isn't going to do him any good at all. This is where IV fluids come in. It's best not to mess with this at home if you want to give your puppy every chance of survival.
Avatar m tn He is eating and drinking but isn't as playful as normal. He had 2 parcel shots but not his 3rd. He does eat anything and everything he finds on the floor could it just be he ate something or maybe parvo?
Avatar m tn My 8 week old lab puppy became very lame this week. unable to stand or walk to eat or potty. He was extremely lathargic, had no temp and was eating, drinking and going potty normal. After a $700 vet bill and lots of loss of sleep and work, my vet diganosed him with panosteitis and prescribed preicox. with in a few hours he was start to stand and we were certain he was diagnosed correctly.
Avatar m tn I have a two month old pit bull he is not eating or drinking when I force him to he vomits he is losing his equilibrium he is just very sick I can't get him in the vet till Monday just wanted to know if anyone would know what the prob is and what I might be able to do he has had his parvo vaccination
Avatar f tn Are things back to normal at home now? Is she not eating at all? Have you maybe tried boiling up some chicken and rice and see if she eats that? Any vomiting or loose stool? Is she drinking water? Have you tried giving her some one on one quality time even if it is a daily walk or play time? The lump concerns me but I see any lumps, I get them checked out and at least get a needle aspiration, if questionable. Getting a Vet exam and some blood work done might not be a bad idea.
Avatar n tn I gave him some pepto bismol and he ended up vommiting huge piles. The next day he had the diarrhea again. He is not eating anything differently I give him Pedigree dry food. I gave him some dry toast to help his tummy. He gets a fish oil tablet a day for dry skin (per the vet). What else can I do since this is the second bout of diarrhea in two weeks. It is here for a day and gone the next.
Avatar n tn Any dog (or cat, for that matter) that stops eating and drinking should be taken to the vet immediately. Since your great prynees are drinking water, that's a good sign. Are they still having diarrhea? PLEASE call your vet soon and ask if they should be brought in. My dog had diarrhea during her puppy stage, and the vet advised I stop feeding the regular puppy chow and gave me suggestions of fresh food to give her to bulk up her stools.
Avatar m tn ) that can make housetraining difficult, and treat the puppy for the condition to make training easier. If you have not yet had her to the vet, make an appointment ASAP so that he can check her out. If there are no health problems that could be contributing to frequent urination, then try the following. Unless it is very hot where you live, try limiting her water intake for a few days to see if it makes a difference in how often she pees. How many times a day are you feeding her?
Avatar m tn She has been vomiting, not eating, not drinking, and is very lethargic. She does not have diarrhea or a temperature. My vet says it is not a reaction to the vaccine, but it seems too coincidental. We've been in twice to the vet this week, with no improvements. She has had her fluids replenished, has been given a pain killer, and was given meds to help stop the vomiting (which only worked for about 12 hours). What should I do? I'm afraid my puppy is dying!
Avatar f tn This is not meant to sound cruel or harsh, but if your dog has refused food for three days and is now vomiting, you should have called the vet this morning! The heat has been so oppressive this summer that a dog can dedydrate in a day if they are not drinking normally, and now that vomiting has started on top of that, it will happen that much more quickly because she's not taking in liquid but now she's vomiting it up!
