my doggy, hunter who is a german shepard is acting weird and im not sure why. He is panting hard and has diareah and gass and keeps acting like he may throw up.

When i came home from school today he was outside.. Running around... Not sure how he got out..but my back door was open...he can open doors if theyre not locked..and i may have forgot to lock it.

Anyway
he now has bad diareah and is panting..he let me know he had to go outside and we went..then he came in and acted like he was going to throw up..but didnt.. Hes sleeping now.

The kids and i just got over a tummy bug..can dogs catch that from humans or do you think he just got into something whil roaming the neighborhood today?

I know my shepherd would act like that when he got into the trash or ate other things he wasn't supposed to like my inhaler. God I miss that dog. He probably got into something.

 Dogs do not catch human bugs. I would be concerned with poisoning. How old is he?

ummm no...dogs cant get a stomach virus that himans get.  he could have gotten into something.  you can give him pepto...make sure hes drinking water to stay hydrated.  you can give him asprin if he seems in pain.  if it gets worse take him to a vet.  Keep an eye on his gums...if they start turning white take him to a vet IMMEDIATELY!!  other than that...dogs get into things ALL the time...its probably nothig to worry about. im not a vet so idk for sure but ive trained ALOT of animals so ive pretty much seen it all lol
