Hi I can help you with your question today.
You poor thing! Two sick puppies at the same time. This must be difficult for you!
I'm glad to hear that Kevin seems to be improving at this time. Have both the boys had their puppy vaccine series already?
Excellent. I just wanted to make sure that they have had their parvovirus vaccines. It sounds like they are safe.
It is curious that they have both come down with the same condition though, I think that makes something infectious OR something environmental highest on our list of possible causes.
Any possibility that they could eat anything foreign in the yard? Plants, mushrooms, etc?
OK, well the underlying cause may remain a mystery, so let's move on to deal with Perry's treatment for now.
You said he has not vomited for several hours now, and so far the only thing you have given him is the anti-diarrheal paste. Is that all correct?
OK. Normally I would suggest that you wait until tonight to offer him food, but since he is a little puppy I would prefer you offer a small amount of food in the next couple of hours.
Give a small amount of the bland diet that you are using for Kevin.
If he can hold it down, he may have a more normal sized meal later on.
Aside from that, encourage him to drink as much as possible.
You can do that by offering him dilute low sodium chicken broth or the water from a tuna can.
Sorry! Just had to get some chocolate milk for my little one ;)
Yes, I have definitely seen dogs with similar conditions before.
Often times we do not get to an ultimate diagnosis, we simply treat them symptomatically to support them through it.
I think that is what we will be doing with Perry, since Kevin seems to be responding well to treatment.
