Sick puppy!

We have a 14 week old puppy that seems to be having tummy troubles :( She dry heaved this morning and had green diarreah (sorry TMI) a few times. Is there anything that I can give her to help her tummy? My daughter gave her some canned food yesterday that our neighbor brought over, which may have caused it. Has anyone else had this issue?

  • It was probably the canned food, his tummy probably isnt used it...Just go back to the dry food, make sure he is drinking water too.

  • Na but I too feel that the canned food caused food poison....

  • i agree.. it's probably the canned food. just switch back to the dry food, always have water available, and watch for her acting lethargic. she should be okay in the next few days without any intervention. just keep an eye on her and take her to the vet if she gets any worse.

  • Keep the pup on the same food u have been giving him. No more canned food. It is not good for their teeth

  • I really think you need to take her to the vet, since she is a young puppy.

  • It was the canned food. Just switch back to her old food and watch for any signs that she is getting worse. If she is lethargic, vomiting frequently or having sever or very liquidy diarrhea for more than a day, take her to the vet immediately. Make sure she stays hydrated as well.
