Hi all, this is my first message, and I hope someone out there can help me!
I just got a puppy, he's about a month and a half old. We took him to a local vet (we are in China) last night to sort out his shots, and the vet noticed that this cute little bundle had worms.
He gave the puppy some medicine (admainistered in the ear), and all looked well.
However, starting from this morning, things have taken a turn for the worse. He couldn't keep any of his breakfast down, it all came back within 5 minutes of him eating it. After that, he started to cough up long worms, maybe 10cm in length. Worms were also present in his stools for a little while after that.
After a few hours, he still wretched, as if to spew more worms, but he had no mor energy to do so. Not only that, but he had the urge to pass stool, but nothing would come out.
Now, he's not eating at all, unsurprisingly. He's almost lifeless, sleeping most of the day. When his eyes are open, there is no reaction in his face. He pees in his lying position, and vomits there, too. It's as if he has been drained of all his energy.
Can anyone advise me what we should do? How can we get him to eat? We're worried sick about him, he's so tiny, and it's clear that the worms have eaten him alive. The vets are not much help here, to be honest, so were' in a bit of a state.
