Just to summarise out phone conversation, my best advice (since there is a hemorrhagic gastro-enteritis) is to book the little one in for a hands-on consult at your local vet. I strongly suspect we are dealing with something infectious here and time is at the essence. See if they can accommodate a house visit for you. The alternative would be a member of the family or a kind neighbour to take him to the vets for you. Some places have the Pet Taxi as well - please try to see if you can find any in your area.

In the meanwhile, please keep him on a bland diet like boiled rice/chicken/white fish (no bones) or a commercial diet like Hills i/d or Royal Canine Gastro-Intestinal. You can try to get a probiotic as well like Protexin Prokolin or Fortiflora.

For any further questions, feel free to ask.
