    Exclamation HELP PLEASE!

    Last week my baby boy was diagnosed with a stomach virus at his vet appointment, but every since then he really doesnít have an appetite (heís raw fed & loves his food). He would eat a little then walk away, but the past day or so he wonít eat anything he will just drink bone broth and goats milk. His vet says itís normal because he is nauseous & she gave him a homeopathic remedy. He sniffs his food and walks away. Iím just super worried. Is there anything natural I can give him or anyone have any suggestions? Please help.

    Last week like how many days now? What did the vet give him and what exactly she meant by stomach virus? We need more details as it can be anything. Also when you feed your dog raw, is is frozen or thawed out? What brand?

    5 days ago. The vet just said he has a stomach virus that’s why he was vomiting and had no appetite. She gave him Nux Vomica and said feed a bland diet of boiled chicken & rice for a week, but when I called yesterday and say he won’t touch his food she said that’s normal he is fasting to get rid of being nauseous. Also, he just previously tested for worms and tested positive for roundworms, but when he went to vet last week, he is now clear and negative. It’s thawed out & it is grinds from Raw Feeding Miami 80/10/10. I’m just so worried.

    I'm a little confused how he could be positive for roundworms one week, and then negative the next... was he taking any meds for the worms?

    Yes he was taking meds for the roundworms when he had them. He was diagnosed with roundworms a month ago and last week when I took him because he was sick he then tested negative. Sorry, I was just giving a little background of what has been going on.

    How old is he? Any change today? Any possibility of a blockage... meaning he ate something he should not have?

    He is 11 months. His vet did an X-ray and there is no blockage as far as like a toy or something like that. There is no change today, his vet informed me to wait until Monday & if nothing changes, bring him in. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas what it could be or has anyone had any experience with this? Thanks so much.

    Sorry was busy... good idea trying scramble eggs. Any more vomiting or diarrhea? I was going to mention what @ddnene said about the worms. Often dogs will stop eating if any worms or eggs inside them. Please let us know what you Vets says on Monday and please do ask about the Nux Vomica as that’s given for overeating or drinking. I just find that odd why she gave him that. Is he still taking it? I am asking cause after a week Nux Vomica usually needs to be stopped.. hunans n pets can take it but does have side effects..

    “Taking nux vomica for more than a week, or in high amounts of 30 mg or more, can cause severe side effects. Some of these side effects include restlessness, anxiety, dizziness, neck and back stiffness, spasms of jaw and neck muscles, convulsions, seizures, breathing problems, liver failure, and death.”

    My dogs caught the doggie flu, had to be at the vet's office. There are 5 dogs, and they were vomiting for a combined total of 16 days. I was running crazy. They were all on anti-biotics, and I was using enough paper towels to reach to Germany! Any possibility that your baby caught it somewhere? But I am hoping that he is doing better @buttercp21
