What symptoms is your dog having?

Is he vaccinated? If so, it's not likely from what I understand but I could be wrong. Is it just upset stomach? If so, canned pumpkin will clear it right up!

Yes if he's not vaccinated & exposed to parvo. If he has vomiting & diarrhea don't feed him, offer water only & call your vet tomorrow. Otherwise you can feed boiled plain chicken & rice (real rice, not minute rice). Do that for a week then slowly start to introduce dog food back into his diet until he's back on dog food. Is he the type of dog to get into the trash or do you know if he ate anything out of the ordinary? If so, get him into the vet asap for an abdominal x ray to make sure nothing is stuck in his intestines.

He is throwing up every thing. Shivering. Diarrhea is bloody.

Last week we got him this stuff that goes in his water to make his breath smell better and we also got him dental bones. Idk of that would cause this.

Possibly. Try eliminating them and see how he does in the next day or so.

You could also call your vet, if he does have parvo he needs meds asap.

If not vaccinated yes. I'd take him in for a stool test...test for parasites and parvo (though it sound weird a vet/vet tech can sometimes smell the parvo in the poo...) could be something he ate though...
