So last night (1 am to be exact) my new pup decided to start vomiting. Only twice, completely undigested food. Then I took him out and he had an extremely watery stool. I freaked and rushed him to the 24 hour emergency vet. I was sure he had parvo and that time was of the essence!

$400 later..... he apparently can't stomach the new treats and just had an upset tummy.

I'm wanting to know if anyone else has had these moments.... mostly so I don't feel like a total newb and overreactive dog mom.... give me company lol

If I have any puppy under 16 weeks old that vomits more than once, regardless of hour, I go to the vet. Period, the end, every time. I don't even pretend I'm not paranoid about parvo. A lot of things I will wait and see or be more conservative with, but young puppy and vomiting repeatedly, especially with diarrhea? Yeah, vet and asap.

And in all honesty I took my 5 year old dog who threw up once and then had diarrhea for a day to the vet. Yeah, garbage gut. In my defense she was trembling and panting and just seemed to be in pain and I wasn't messing around with it. Regular diarrhea in an adult dog fine, but acting painful? No.

So, basically I think you did the very right, logical, appropriate thing in getting it checked.

Been there as well. I average a panicked vet trip at least once a year. Who cares about the cost, your peace of mind that you are doing your best is far more important.

Glad it was just too many of the wrong treats.

been there done that but with a limp.

Manna has learned that if she limps she get more attention...she'll even forget with legs is supposed to be sore mid limp sometimes.

Vet diagnosis...she want to cuddle.

emerg fees, x-ray fees ect ect later.

Manna can be a good actor so we get her legs check regularly now just in case.

It is never a bad idea to go to the vet :)

This makes me feel better.... I was feeling a little foolish for rushing to the vet in the wee morning hours but in all honesty - I'd likely do it again. The emergency vets know us well because of our other dog and how much I run him there for pain/intestinal issues (he's now on a super super strict diet and doggy prozac because he gets stressed easy).
