• My puppy has had diarrhea once a day for the past 4 days (once he threw up too - just yellow foam). It doesn't look like there's blood in his stool. We have an appointment in a week and a half - should I try to get him into the vet sooner? We haven't changed his food.

    Hi Alanna,
    I recommend that you take him into see a vet as soon as possible. Vomiting and diarrhea in a puppy is concerning. This can be caused by a few different things including infection, intestinal parasites, inflammation of the GI tract, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
