Answered By

A. He needs to be examined by a vet to determine the cause. It could be caused by a virus (parvo) or a parasite. Your vet can run some tests to diagnose and treat. He may need some fluids to prevent dehydration and medications to treat the problem. Please have him examined as soon as possible.
