Default HELP!! Vomiting & Diarreha ...After Vet Vist

My Baby Murphy was feeling fine the other day and today he is laying around not wanting to eat. He vomits clear liquid and has had Diarreha since real early this morning.

He went to the Vets yesterday and she gave him a vaccine DHP Parvo Corona and I did ask if there was any side effects to this and she told me not really only that he would probably be sleepy. Hmmm whats made him sick then? She also changed his food, she gave him a different soft food to eat.
called (prescription Diet canine AD)

I am just sick with worry, as he weighs only 1lb 13ozs. 4 months old. The stress will make me ill soon, as I worry about him so much.

Any hints, ideas, or suggestions? I am ALL EARS and EYES

Katharine

I would call your vet and tell her that he is doing both.
It could just be (and probably is) that his shot is making him sick but you need to watch it with a tiny one. You need to make sure that his intake of fluids is good and that he is not getting dehydrated.

Call your vets office so she has a heads up in case he needs to be seen and remind them how small he is when you call..

please call your vet. Diarreha could be from change in food.
i do hope Murphy gets to feeling better soon. hugs coming from me and my babies, to you and murphy.

Hi again its me ..the worrywart

I feel so silly sometimes but this is my first Yorkie Puppy and I dont have a clue about somethings. I worry about him all the time ever since he was real bad sick with Kennel Cough over a month ago, and he finally got better and now this happens. I just want to cry.

I called the Vets Office and she said bring him in this afternoon because he is small and cant afford to nnot eat or drink. I gave him some Kayro syp. and it was a struggle to put that in his mouth. He looks afraid of me now.

Someone told me not to give Kayro because it alone can give the dog the runs...is this true? Have I just made him worse? Honey was suggested.

How much do you give of any of it. I just put it on my finger and rubbed it inside his mouth. How often should I do this? How much is too much?

I am so worried I will make him worse, he is my baby and I love him dearly.

A little bit of Karo is not going to make him worse. How long has it been since he has eaten? My little girl was just a tiny bit bigger than your Murphy and she had to fast before getting spayed, she was fine. When you take him in today if he is still sick the vet will probably give him some fluids and that will make him feel better. If he starts sliding downhill just go to your vet and tell them you want him seen now. They will fit you in between clients if you are sitting there.
Try not to worry too much, he will be ok.

You shouldn't ever feel silly about worrying about your kid, you are doing the best thing by taking him in.

It is so scarry when your baby is sick. I agree about taking him to the vet.
You did right by massaging a little Kayo on his gums. Also A/D can cause loose stools. I must have missed something(whats new) but why is he on A/D?
Sending positive thoughts your way.

I checked his gums and they are pink and alittle blueish towards the top, mostly pink tho.

The Vet gave him A/D so he could gain some more weigh as he was real sick around a month ago with congestion in his chest from Kennel Cough. The breeder had him on Hills Science Diet Puppy soft food, but he doesnt seem to like it too much.

Thanks for the info on A/D, I did not know it caused loose stools.

The Breeder gave me a little list of things he can have, Yogurt 2xs a day, or cottage cheese, Ricotta Cheese, Boiled Hamburg and Noodles, Mac & Cheese, Puppy Formula with Chicken baby food, if he doesnt want to eat at times.

I offered him most but he must not really feel like eating because he turned away and went and layed down

He doesnt drink either but I try to dip my fingers in his water bowl and he licks it a few times then stops.

He was fine yesterday, so I am thinking it was the vaccine that made him sick, I will keep you all posted and thankyou for the replies. As I said before I am new to this and I will need all the help I can get.

Katharine

Aww I hope he gets better soon. It's terrifying when they're just not right. I'd definitely take him to the vet. I'm not much help, luckily Lexie had no reactions to shots...not even sleeping. I take that back, the rabies made her a little wookie. Anyways, hope he gets all better soon.

I know how scarey it is when they are so tiny and so sick. I agree that the shot probably made him sick. I never knew this, I just found out last week, that they give the same dose to have Big Dog as they give to Little Dogs! It made me so mad to hear that

Anyway, b/c he is so tiny I would bring him to the Vet and let them give him fluids. My TJ was very sick when he was young and tiny. I used to put Pedialyte in a syringe and force it down. I also would give a tiny bit of boiled chicken and I would drizzle honey on top.

Best of luck and keep us posted

I agree ....due to his size it's better to be safe than sorry and they can really dehydrate very easily at this young age (and size) ...poor baby - I hope he feels better and when mine were little - boiled chicken and white rice helped with tummy problems. I hope your vet was careful in the shots - these little dogs cant be treated like their larger size counterparts...in the future - you could get the shots spaced out over time instead of all at once

Hi Everyone,

Just got back from the Vets Office, and she said he probably got sick from the vaccine, she gave him a very small dose, but now she sees how he reacts to it, she will have to really rethink doses. She did not give Fluids because he is not dehydrated.

She also gave me some Nurtical to give to him but not much, and some Medicine called Diarsanyl for small dogs, its to help with his tummy and coating the intestinal tract, so it can ease the Vomiting and Diarreha. Well she gave it to him in the office and when we got home, he threw up. I believe its the car-ride when he isnt feeling good.

I feel bad for him, he just lays there and picks his head up to look at me even when I hold him.

Thankyou for help. Hopeing this will be a 24 hour thing
Katharine

Default You have a problem that is common among yorkies

actually two problems.
Changes in diet can cause digestive track upsets. It is best to do a change when everything else in their little lives is status quo that way you can tell if food change is cause.

When pups go for shots it is common for the vet to give them a few at a time but with Yorkies it is often too much for their little systems and they can go through 3-5 days of "flu" like symptoms and dehydrate very easily.

This has happened to me and now I will go to the vet for the pup checkup and to start the shots series. I will pay for all the shots needed at the time but will only let him give one shot at a time. Then I wait 2-3days and if no "flu-like" symptoms come up I go back in and get other shot. It works great that way. If they get upset system at all it only lasts like a few hours to 1/2 day.

I honestly believe small dogs shouldn't be given multiple shots in one vet visit.

Default I just want to CRY!!!!

Hi everyone,

I just want to cry to be honest. My Murphy has been through alot in the little time I have had him. The first time I had him it was for 9DAYS then I had to return him to the breeder under my Vets reccommendation because he was so sick with complications from Kennel Cough. The Breeder had him for 1 month and Nursed him back to health.

He seemed fine when I picked him up on Saturday, he went to the Vets on Monday and got a vaccine and he got sick from it (Vomiting & Diarreha) well he seem to feel abit better yesterday he ate and played...Today he is again sick. He tried to eat but threw it all back up, his little tummy was making some really gassy sounds. I also noticed when he poops, its mushy and there are some bright red blood droplets mixed with clear liquid in spots on his pee pee pad too.

My friend said her dog did that but it was because of the Diarreha and that the blood being bright means it does not come from the internal, probably more irritated nearer to the rectum.

I am waiting for the Vet to call me as I write this. I am so sad within me because of my little baby. I hate to see him suffer with anything and things dont seem to get better and I have not had him that long.

He is 1lb 13ozs (4 months old) Are their stomachs this fragile>? I just wonder will he ever be ok and live to play happy. For such a little guy he tries to stay on top but something always seems to get in the way.

I am heartbroken, I could never just give him back...I love him so much.

Thankyou for letting me vent.
Katharine
