It turns out that my dog caught parvo virus. Luckily it was caught early and he was hospitalized for a few days. My vet sent him home with some medications and some food. He's hasn't been lethargic and seems more energetic than how he was the past week. He doesn't like the dog food the vet sent him home with, so I've been giving him boiled chicken with plain white rice. He hasn't been drinking water so I've been having to force him with a syringe. My biggest concern is the fact that he keeps throwing up. He'll throw up a little bit after he eats, continue eating and keep that down. A couple of times he's thrown up his medicine, and also after I give him water/pedialite mixture. Is there anything I can do to prevent him from throwing up? Asides from giving him a shot for nauseous, I've already spent $1500 and I really can't spend anymore View Thread
My 5 month old puppy, a terrier mix (really small pup), has been throwing up clear white foamy substance. He started throwing up on Friday, but I brushed it off thinking it was just because of an upset stomach and that he'll be fine by tomorrow. (That is what happened to my other dog, she ate something bad threw up for a day and didn't eat and then the next day she was fine). Today before I left for work I tried to get him to eat some dog food, but he refused. Thinking his stomach was still upset, I just gave him some water. When I got back from work he was still in bed and he just seems very weak and lethargic. Also he's been throwing up a lot more. It's still clear and foamy, but when he would throw up he would try to keep it in his mouth and eat it (I'm not sure if I'm describing it right, but basically he refuses to let it out pass his mouth). I plan on taking him to the vet on Monday because I really don't have the money to make a trip to an emergency vet -__-
Also, when I came home from work I gave him some more water (I didn't want him to get all dehydrated) but he threw it up a couple hours later. All he's been doing the whole time since I got home is just sleeping/laying in his bed, but he has walked around my room to settle into a different sleeping spot (mainly from his bed to my rug, and then back again). I also noticed that he threw up a lot more than yesterday.
Any thoughts on what could be happening to my little one or advice would be greatly appreciated!
Some additional information that might be helpful: - His breath smells normal - He actually hasn't gone poo since Friday (but I assumed that's because he hasn't eaten anything since Friday)
