Hi there, this is Dr Linda, a UK based vet.

I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for Havoc.

When did this start?

Is he lethargic or off his food?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Yesterday night and we gave him some baby food and he ate it all and kept to down
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Think maybe he ate something he shouldn’t have but he seems much better now eating his food he’s not pooed yet
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 14 days ago.
I'm glad to hear he is feeling better.

Are his gums pink and wet?

Any bloating or panting?

Hi there, could you see my response?

Without further information it is difficult for me to provide the best advice but I will certainly try.

Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.

Vomiting and diarrhoea in a young dog can have several causes including:

  • A viral or bacterial gastroenteritis
  • Dietary indiscretion (eating something they shouldn't have)
  • Toxin ingestion
  • A gut obstruction
  • Parasites 
  • Etc.

Shaking can be due to nausea, a fever, anxiety or pain caused by e.g. stomach cramps.

The main thing is that he is alert and active. He should have pink and wet gums and should be happy to eat and drink.

Offer bland food such as cooked chicken and white rice little and often alongside water.

Do also ensure he's up to date with a good quality wormer such as Panacur.

I'd also start a probiotic paste such as Protexin Prokolin.

I do hope this has helped and please let me know if there is anything else,

Take care,

Linda.
