Q. My yorkie quit eating and has been puking and has had dirrahea now since Saturday.
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. It sounds like he is having an acute gastrointestinal problem, probably due to something he ate. Try to remember if you gave him something unusual. This could be the cause of a gastrointestinal infection.
It could also be a toy or bone that is obstructing the stomach, this very commonly causes vomiting and diarrhea.
You should probably take him to the vet as he will need treatment either way.

A. I would be very concerned about any dog with vomiting and diarrhea for 6 days and most especially when not eating; dehydration is a real risk and can present a very serious risk. I strongly recommend you get him assessed and treated with injectable medications, he may even need intravenous fluids if the vomiting is profuse as he is not able to keep medications or fluids down. Arrange an appointment as soon as possible, there are no home remedies which could be recommended at this stage as if he was able he should have recovered within 72hours of the original onset
