    Please don't wait too long before taking the pup to the vet. Dogs can get worse very quick and in the long run it may be cheaper to take him sooner than later. I have learned this from sad experience. Good luck to you and your pup. Please keep us posted.

    Glad to here it's getting better but if it starts again I would get to the vet ASAP as dogs can dehydrate really fast .

    Good luck and you may want to try a diet of boiled chicken and rice for a couple of days. Drain the fat off the chicken after it is cooked.

    Good news. Glad that the pooch is feeling better.

    Suggestion: Normal body temperature for doggies varies between 99.5 to 102.5F.

    Take the temp of your dog when he/she is feeling well, & normal.
    My dogs "normal" temp is 101.5F.

    That way you can take their temp at home when you suspect there is something wrong and you'll know when their temp is not normal. Dogs can get very ill very quickly so it helps to know early if something is wrong or there is fever or infection.

    When one of ours has a tummy problem, we feed them boiled chicken and white rice, along with their regular kibble. If that doesn't work, then it's time for the pepto. Actually, they're both on a diet, so they get boiled chicken, carrots, peas, rice and bit of kibble for every meal. In a week the Boxer lost 3 pounds
