Q. My 10 week old puppy threw uplast night and had diarrhea this morning. We forgot to water down his dry food last night and he usually eats soggy food.

Answered By

A. It probably isn`t anything to do with not watering down the food. It is not unusual for puppies to pick up tummy bugs. If he has stopped vomiting and now having diarrhea it sounds like the bug is passing through nicely. If he becomes lethargic or vomiting continues then contact your vet. Has he mixed with unvaccinated dogs? If so and there is a possibility that it could be parvo, but the vomiting & diarrhea would continue and the pup would be lethargic.
