• my puppy’s been vomiting and diarrhea for a day today. It’s color yellow like vile. And both are slimy. The smell is like Rotovirus. He is excessively thirsty.

    Hi Juanna,
    I recommend that you take your puppy into see a veterinarian immediately. Vomiting and diarrhea like you are describing is very concerning in a puppy. This can quickly lead to dehydration or low blood sugar which can be life threatening. There can be a few different causes for this including infection, intestinal parasites, a GI foreign body, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the symptoms after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of his symptoms.
