Q. My puppy acts as if he may have the flu. Lack of appitite, mucus like vomit. On day two. Should I be concerned? He will drink a little water.
A. We always suggest that puppies are checked sooner rather than later, as they can go downhill rapidly, just like babies do. Vomiting can lead to dehydration and can cause serious consequences when pets are young. I would take him to your regular vets, bringing along your vaccination and worming/parasites records, and report on when the illness started, how frequently he vomits and when, what does he vomit, how often he goes to the toilet, what do you normally feed him etc.
