Hi all.

For the past 4 or 5 days jakey has had diarrea and 2 days ago he vomited 3 times in the space of a few hours. He's never done this before so i am a little worried. We havnt changed his diet and he hasnt got worms, any suggestions as to what it could be, and also should i be taking him to the vet?? He is about 10 months old now and I understand that he could have eaten something nasty in the garden or out on a walk but I am getting a bit worried now.

Any advice??

Thanks guys and girls xx

I would take him to the vet. Bring a stool sample to check also. A lot of times we cant find a cause for the v/d, but they can give him medication to help with both. Also they can get dehydrated pretty quickly and might need some fluids under the skin to help hydrate him. I hope he feels better soon! How is his appitite and attidude?

I agree, make a vet appointment and bring a stool sample. Better safe than sorry! Dehydration is definitely something not to fool with and if he is loosing fluids through v/d then he could get that way fast.

Wishing you the best.. hope you find out it is nothing serious and he is back to normal quickly!!!

Until you can get him to the Vet - you may want to fast him at least 2 meals with plenty of water -(give his stomach time to clean out) and then place on a bland diet of chicken and rice maybe with some yogurt it tends to ease up on the stomach. It sounds like he could have eated something. Has there been a change in his routine at all? I hate when they are like that. Suri goes through this every so often, so it appears she has a bit of a stomach problem when it comes to change. Good luck:)
