Q. I have a new puppy 8 weeks old. Had it for 4 days. Today, he looked weak and don't want to eat. Tonight, vomit (only clear liquid).

Answered By

A. Puppies do pick up lots of tummy bugs but taking into account the age and being unvaccinated I would be concerned about parvo. I would recommend having him checked over by your vet as soon as possible as little pets can go downhill very quickly and the sooner it gets treatment the easier it will be to treat.
