    Don't fret, and don't be too hard on yourself. You love your puppy, and there is no shame in that.

    But DO educate yourself about pet shops, and where they get there puppies from. http://www.yourpurebredpuppy.com/buy...et-stores.html It is best to always get a puppy from a responsible breeder

    Take care of that beautiful little puppy, and a second opinion would probably be best.

    Please give yourself a break, you're awesome for being Dozer's advocate and seeking the best way to care for him...

    My EB, Hooey, has had this issue before as well. We got him last July and when we went into allergy season last fall he would get really congested & throw up alot of mucus (with little amounts of food mixed in). My boyfriend & I even rushed him to the vet once because he was making a hacking sound like he couldnt breathe. Our vet also recomended putting him in the bathroom with us when we would take showers so the vapors would break up the mucus. Luckily, after being on antibiotics for about two weeks it went away. We were giving Hooey 2 pills a day from the get go. Hopefully your baby just has some allergies and after the antibiotics run their course he will be just fine.

    You sound like me when mine were puppies. I took them to the vet at the drop of a hat. Even though sometimes it ended up being unnecessary, I am glad I did because I learned much during the puppy time. Safety first!

    @BrooklynStar dogs will usually drink when the water is first put down for them, fresh. If you have trouble getting him to drink, try floating some ice cubes in the water.

    Thanks everyone for the support and well wishes!!!! I'm so happy and thankful that I found these forums for Dozer!!Poor guy just puked up his dinner...hes not even digesting his food...its coming up whole =[I am going to blend some of his dry food tomorrow in our blender and see if that helps him...I wont be able to go over to PETCO until later in the morning at which point ill get him some wet food in hopes of it helping his belly not throw up his meals. This is such a gut wrenching feeling, seeing him hack, and cough, and then puke his food up... I feel so helpless...Only thing I can do is put him on my lap, wrap my arms around him, and sit there while he does it...I refuse to let him go through this alone and if he pukes on me then so be it...no living thing should have to go through that alone =[I'll keep you guys posted for tomorrow and this thread acts like a digital log for me in case I need to go back a few months from now and refer to it. Keeping my fingers crossed that this goes away soon.

    Truly, thanks everyone from the bottom of our hearts!!!

    Poor baby.... and Mama! Did you get a vet that you can take for a second opinion? All this throwing up and no food digesting is very worrisome...

    I would be there.... just does not seem right if he tossed his whole dinner after all that happen last night. It will be costly, but at least you'll have a better sense of what is going on. If I remember earlier post, you said you weren't to thrilled with the vet you were going to.
