  • Take him to the vet NOW. Puppies can go downhill quickly. Not to mention there are diseases like Parvo and if you catch it early they can be saved, if you dont catch it on time they have to be put down. Its a painful way to go.

  • If he is not keeping liquids down at all, take him to an emergency vet now.

  • Is there someone who can come stay with your dd while you take the puppy to the vet? Has he had puke or diarrhea with blood in it? If he's had any diarrhea, does it smell more strong/stinky that usual? Those, along with the weakness/lethargy, can be signs of either Parvo or Giardia (I've experienced both)....either one can KILL the puppy! I hope you can get him to the vet before it's too late. Good luck!

  • It sounds like parvo virus to me too. I hope he is ok. Some things can wait, but I agree with the others here, you really can't get him to the vet fast enough if it is parvo. 50% of pups survive parvo...hope it is something else. He could be blocked, puppies eat things they shouldn't and sometimes can't pass the objects. Either way, he is really sick and the sooner you can get him there the better. Call the vet, a tech might be willing to help and come get him if you aren't too far away.
