Dog Vomiting and not eating as much?

Postby The Fate » Tue Mar 10, 2009 10:51 am

I wanted to bring this issue up that im having, and hopefully
discover some reasons why "Blue" is vomiting and not eating
as much.

2 days ago I fed him a treat for rewarding him on good behavior,
and he started coughing as if he was chocking on it, then 2 mins
later barfed up his whole lunch :yucky:
We assumed it was cuz he was chocking..

Then lastnight i was lying on my bed and noticed a big pile of
barf again on my floor... Now this time i know he couldnt of chocked..
Also what makes me think sumthings wrong is he doesent scarf down all his food like he did a few days ago, he leaves some behind..

Now mind you he just got his second round of shots and maybe that might be the issue, but if anyone knows any answers hopefully you can fill me in? I dont notice any strange behavior besides that, we go on the walks fine, he runs fine.. nothing noticable

If it is a puppy you need to get it tested for Parvo. Today.

No, it isn't. We vaccinate dogs all the time here (we have a rescue) and they don't puke after vaccines.
It could be worms, too. I'd recommend taking puppy to the vet.

Well he has an appointment anyways today to take his stiches out of his
ears after the crop, so i'll have him check on that too...

So should I just ask the doc to check for parvo or just explain to him whats happening ?

And if it is parvo whats the procedures ?

Yes, you NEED to tell the vet what is going on and have him tested for Parvo. If he does have Parvo the "procedure" will probably be for you to leave him with your vet and pay your vet a lot of money to try to keep him alive. Sorry to be blunt but it really irks me when people are hesitant to take young puppies to public places for fear of illness but have no problem leaving them at the MOST risky place ever: the vet! For a cosmetic surgery no less. Where do you think people take all of their sick dogs/puppies. I always tell people the most likely place for a pup to catch Parvo is AT the vet. I hope your pup is okay.

Well tell them the symptoms, yes.
Pup will need hospitalization if it's parvo.

I'll have him checked today thanks...
But im almost sure its not parvo, if it were I think there would
be more noticable signs.. Like non playful, lying down alot, not walking around... This dog is energetic, runs alot, jumping around.. Plus he has had his shots... So inless he caught it while taking him outside to pee before I got the shots which i doubt then eh.. But yea money is not a issue so i'll get him checked today anyways !

It could be early parvo or it could be eating too fast, or just nothing. It is better to be safe, than sorry.
Parvo is a quick killer but survivable if caught early.
Good luck, keep us updated.

Quick update..

So I just got back from the vet, i mentioned what i told you guys
here earlier and I guess he did a quick test on "Blue".

He stuck his finger up his :moon: and basically checked his S#$!
He said if he had parvo it would be mushy and green..which he didnt have.. Then told me if he throws up again to bring him back and they will do further tests.. So I guess they takes a bit weight off my shoulder for now but i'll keep yall updated!

My very first dog was a Parvo puppy. She started with not eating, then vomiting and then diarrhea. I'm surprised your vet wouldn't even perform an actual test.

That's insane.
You need to find a new vet.

BTW, by the time they are having bloody diarrhea it's too late!
He could have checked for coccidiosis too, or giardia or even a bacterial infection in the gut!
I'd be PISSED if my vet stuck his finger in my dog's ass and said it was fine and DIDN'T DO TESTS!!!

not to sound like a broken record, but i would either tell your vet to do the testing....or find another vet, even just to find someone who is more personable and willing to work and explain things to you...i always hated leaving the vets office with a 'sinking no better informed than i was before' feeling.

That's not true at all.
And the parvo shots won't work until you're done with the whole set, which isn't until the dog is about 16 weeks old.

Parvo shots do nothing until you've had the full set.
